CAO Mx2 Box-Press

The Mx2 line from CAO has been out for a few years now, however a few months ago they released a new addition to the line with the Box-press. I was a fan of the original line, particularly the robusto, so I’ll give this new vitola a shot and let you know what I think.

I keep hearing that box-pressed cigars have more flavors or more intense flavors, but I just do NOT like the shape! I do want to try the CAO Cuban pressed they brought out in that 12 pack, but I do not go out of my way to find the square cigars ;)


good review chris, i also agree with you that a cigar will let you know when its time to put it down. that was good advice

When I first tried the MX2 Box-Press I thought it felt too tight. I had some issues lighting it and getting first draw going. But after about the 1st 1/2-3/4 inch it opened up. After that, it was a great cigar!
