Cigar Aficionado's Glossary
of Cigar Terms
Slide lid boxes, also known as cabinet selection boxes, are wooden boxes with sliding tops, designed to hold 25 or 50 cigars, often wrapped with a ribbon. Cabinets are often much taller than dress or semi dress boxes, and the cigars are often packed with greater amounts of air between each cigar. Some connoisseurs who age their smokes prefer cigars packed in cabinet style, believing the increased amount of air allows for better aging.
