    Genesis The Project by Ramon Bueso Robusto Review

    $3. - $5.20
    Robusto Extra 5.5 x 50
    Country: Honduras
    Wrapper: Connecticut Broadleaf Maduro

    Prelight: Hay, cherries, bread dough, solidly built cigar with some weight to it.

    1st 1/3
    Creamy coffee flavor, light spice, leather, roasted nuts, earth, nutmeg, light black licorice, medium body.
    Draw a little tight, nice start though.

    2nd 1/3
    Perfect straight burn line, creamy sweet now, followed by the coffee flavor, light spice, leather, roasted nuts, earth, nutmeg, light black licorice and sweet, the flavors work together completely for this cigar very well.

    Draw has opened up now.....
    This is turning out to be a surprising stick and even right off the UPS truck, time in the humidor is going to be a treat.

    Final 1/3
    Love the light black licorice and sweetness here, all of the above notes still with the symphony in 7 part harmony, getting a Vitamin N buzz now.

    The addition of the Connecticut Broadleaf Maduro wrapper is key here I think, my favorite wrapper for sure.

    Smoke time: 1hr 20 min
    Score: 9.5 out of 10 (not a 10 because I wanted it to go on)

    Great review 2cool, it gets better with time most of mine are now over 400 days and I really hate having to put it out.
    Why is it we never seem to have the time to do something right the first time but always seem to have the time to do it over again.

    Your review makes me want to revisit this cigar sooner rather than later. The first one I had seemed kind of bland, but there are 4 more resting.

    I agree. I purchased 5 of these and the first one was pretty bland. I was expecting it to approach the Undercrown based on pre-purchase reviews. I was disappointed. The other 4 are going to rest a bit and this review gives me hope.

    I've tried all the sizes of this make and the Muy Bueso (double toro) (Gordo) (6.5"x60) was the very best, worthy of a box
    Leaf/Wrapper ratio comes into play big time on this cigar and I'm sure rest of any of the sizes will make them all winners
    But right of the truck the Muy Bueso (double toro) (Gordo) (6.5"x60) wins and with rest a tasty treat.
    What's also interesting that the Arturo Fuente Anejo Reserva line are better to me fresh then when aged

    Great review brother. I've been meaning to try one of these for some time now... might have to bite the bullet soon.

    Ok, I smoked a second one tonight. It was better. It had a firm draw and did not want to stay lit for the 1st third, but then opened up a bit. By the end I didn't want to put it out. Nice cigar. I'll try to be patient with the other 3 in my humidor. It just didn't knock my socks off like I expected, given all the positive reviews I read about it.

    I received one in a trade, I guess I will wait a bit before firing it up!

    Cigar smoking is a personal experience where one cigar is the holy grail while another is a dog rocket to the next guy
    Similar to sitting and watching a sunset and finding the one yesterday better while another loves today's

    I just smoked stick #3 from my 5 pack. You're review made me not give up on these, and I thank you for it. #3 with a little more rest was a winner.

    Makes me realize not to review a cigar before it has had some rest to season, this cigar seasoned made the Liga Privada #9 I have in a new rest stink compared to this stick at 1/3 the cost and pray the #9 catches up

    Truth in words. With that being said, these Genesis' are easily one of my favorite regulars. I prefer the torpedo myself however.
