Master Vintner Wine Corks 8 x 1.75"
Fit standard 375 ml wine bottles; folks who use a hand corker find these easier to insert in 750 ml or 1.5 liter bottles.
First quality agglomerated corks made from uniform shavings and unused portions of cork, and are mixed with appropriate food grade glue to form a dense, well-made closure.

It was a gift to someone. I have not got a clue!
The 4 star review is for the product. They do the job but you can easily find a better cork for long term storage. At the price point these corks will do the job at good cost and that is what counts.
Have used these many times with good results, but now find wine seeping through the corks a couple weeks after we bottled the last couple batches.
I like the 8x1.75 because they are easier to insert using my hand corker. They are really only recommended for 350 ml bottles, but since my wines are always consumed within a year they have worked out just fine for me with 750 ml bottles. Note that I always use a plastic foil capsule over the cork as well, so drying out has never been a problem, even though I store my bottles upright. And I've never had a "corked" wine either using the composite corks. I am quite happy with them.
