Francisco Almonte, Owner of DBL Cigars noted:

“I love making box-pressed cigars and recognized that there weren’t many large ring gauge, box-pressed cigars in the market, so I wanted to introduce today’s smokers to a new blend in a vitola that is sure to impress.”

The packaging is symbolic of an old treasure box to reinforce the richness of the cigar and the idea that it is a one-if-a-kind jewel.

Francisco had the unique opportunity to work under the tutelage of two of the world’s most iconic cigar makers: Mr. Carlos Fuente Sr. and Mr. Litto Gomez before creating DBL Cigars.
