Cigar review: Ramon Bueso Genesis Habano
I have seen this smoke advertised as the new wave of cigars offering great flavor and low prices. Not sure how I resisted this offer. Cigar International made even a stronger pitch. 5 cigars , cutter and lighter for $9.99 and a small shipping charge. That was too tempting and I opted in. The Ramon Bueso Genesis Habano was part this deal. I finally got around to smoke it and write this review. Where and how I received the cigar does not influence my subjective opinion of the smoke. Try the cigar if my review seems interesting enough for you.
Brand/name of Cigar: Ramon Bueso/Genesis Habano
Country of Origin: Honduras
Size: 5 x 50
Price: sampler pack from Cigars International, $9.99 for 5 cigars plus shipping
Where and When Smoked : Los Angeles , 9/24/17
Very attractive band with a great combo of colors. Wrapper is medium brown with a solid, oily feel . No obvious faults so it started off on a good foot.
Flavor/Taste and Aroma:
The first third was a medium spicy blend with a good combo of coffee, and chocolate. Nothing was overpowering but it has a good balance which is important in the beginning of a cigar to me. The second third the spice was pretty much the same with an added taste of mild nuts.
The first third had a grey ash with an even burn and the cigar was steady throughout the smoke. No problems for the burn line, and it smoked cool.
This is a good buy and a pleasing cigar with nothing remarkable about it. It would be a good cigar to have if you need to just hang out with buddies but don’t want to think too much about anything as you smoke. I would not necessarily buy them but would not feel out of sorts buying them either. I guess that is a tepid endorsement.
Final Thoughts and Numbers:
Sale items or combo packs usually run from a good smoke to a giveaway. A middle of the road cigar is ok .
