The seventh edition of La Flor Dominicana’s Factory Press line will get a formal showing at next week’s IPCPR Convention & Trade Show.
It’s called Factory Press and is actually close in size to the original Factory Press, though this version is slightly thinner at 6 1/2 x 58 versus the 6 1/2 x 60 size of the original Factory Press and Limitado.
The blend however is pretty different. It’s got an Ecuadorian habano wrapper, Ecuadorian Sumatran binder and Dominican fillers.
Factory Press is an extreme box-pressed cigar that is left in the trays that many factories use to box-press. The difference is, the cigars never come out of the trays until a consumer buys one, whereas other box-pressed cigars are taken out of the presses within a few hours to a couple days.
The cigars are expected to begin shipping in September.
