    This is when cigars are put into the box they will be sold in (but it’s ever so slightly too small for the circumference of the cigar) and the action of closing the box tightly presses the cigars. This gives them a “squarer” profile as opposed to a circular profile.

    Much like getting a sandwich roll and squishing it into a lunchbox - when you take it out the top will be flat.

    Hope this helps.

    And some of them are pressed in square moulds to achieve the shape. The Eye of the Shark for example.

    I thought the Hexagone was a Cuban cigar!
