Pressoir [French pronunciation: pres-war] n. a machine that exerts pressure to form and shape or extract liquids from compressed solids.
The French use this word to describe the device that winemakers have used for hundreds of years to press the fermented grape must to extract the alcoholic juice better known as wine. Surprisingly, the same word Pressoir is used to describe the device that cigar makers use to press their cigar molds to obtain the desired cigar shapes.
These box pressed Pressoir cigars were hand made by experienced rollers in the Compania Hondurena De Tabacos factory in Danli, Honduras. They were blended by Master Blender – Adin Perez and were made in the traditional Cuban method of hand rolling and finishing with a unique triple cap. The result is a medium body cigar with the flavors of rich coffee mocha, dark chocolate and a creamy, nutty finish.
