A: Hello John. Tierra del Sol is a brand we've carried for many years. Maybe a decade. From day one, these cigars were box-pressed - every size, both blends. Over the years, we did receive some cigars that did not feature a box-press, or the press wasn't as sharp and prominent. This 'error' was fixed immediately with the manufacturer....and to be sure we looked at our current inventory for each size and can confidently say, each is box-pressed.
