I bought this as a graduation gift for a friend of mine and he absolutely loved it. It looks amazing and on top of it, it a great deal.

Surprisingly satisfied!
The cigars are great and the ash tray is better than I thought it would be. You can't tell by the picture or description but the bottom of the ash tray is glass. The wood has a nice finish on it as well. Glad I decided to purchase this. Great to use or just show off as décor.

Great smokes
Really nice ashtray but don't leave outside for to long. Room for cutters and other items as well. The cigars are very good, easy draw burns well. Going to get more of these bad boys.

Decent Quality for Price.
The ash tray portion of the box is not made very good. The sides of the tray stick up higher than the slots that are cut in the box for the cigars to rest in. Thus your cigar won't stay on the side of the ashtray like it should. It is also very hard to keep clean because they didn't seal the wood around the glass insert. For the price its not a bad tray to have. But they could have given a little more attention to detail.

Top Notch cutter and lighter storage
A bit pricey but a very unique piece that holds several lighters, bullets, cutters and other cigar-related junk that I used to have all over the place. The Ramon Bueso maduros are very enjoyable too!

Pleasantly surprised
I was VERY pleased with this cigar. It instantly went on my 5 star rating and I looked forward to every one I smoked. The ashtray was also very cool. You don't have to be as careful with it as the ceramic ones. I will definitely buy more of these sticks!

Glad I took the chance. It's perfect!
I finally just decided to do it when I caught it for ten bucks off. Someday I'd need an ashtray of my own to smoke out on my own patio/porch/wherever, and I'd eyed this one. But the catalog site had comments suggesting it was small and not a great one. I just loved the idea it had a drawer for me to store my lighter and cutter, so I chanced it. It is not so much to use as an actual humidor (because it clearly wouldn't function as such). But it would come with 6 Ramon Bueso Genesis toros which is an added plus, yet I didn't remember thinking they were that great (and my first one I couldn't even draw at all). But that was forever ago. It finally came, and I don't get why they complained about its size. It fits all that and a little more in the drawer, is the perfect personal size (a little bigger in fact), and since my palate hadn't been developed yet, I'm finding the six toros were delicious in fact now that I know more about what I like. Very glad I did this. This thing is perfect. I just don't get all the whining at all. Did you think it was supposed to be Olympic sized or something?

Cigar/Ashtray combo
I love the ashtray not a big an of the cigars I never had them before and after reading the description of the cigar I thought it would be alright, now I was wrong I ended up giving the cigars away to others just to try! But the ashtray is holding up good though!

A well rounded cigar

The ashtray is beautiful, but it's poorly designed.
The ashtray is beautiful, but it's poorly designed. The lift out ashtray sits too high and interferes with the area of the lip where the cigar is supposed to rest so the cigar doesn't sit on the the lip, but falls out of or into the ashtray. If you chisel out the support for the lift out ashtray then the cigars well sit perfectly, but then the lift out portion rests on the drawer which makes the drawer difficult to operate. Cigars are nice, deep dark chocolate smell

Genesis Project Ashtray
Great price! I've seen similar for more money..The cigars samplers were very good. I was surprised. I have even ordered more since then. The only drawbacks I noticed was that...first...the drawer is not as deep as I expected it to be....It holds cutters perfectly..but all my lighters don't fit. And secondly...the ashtray portion should have curved notches to better rest your cigar on...But all in all its a great deal and everyone has commented on it!!

Genesis the project cigars are great. Ashtray is very well put together. Convenient drawer is great for storing my cutters and lighters.

It's my 2nd one
Bought it for the ashtray and the cigars were surprisingly good too! Now I use the storage part of the ashtray to store my lighter, cutter etc in my man cave while I actually use the ashtray to smoke. I bought one for my uncle who is an avid cigar smoker and he loves both as well...

It's my favorite ashtray!
The craftsmanship is beautiful, in fact, it's prettier than than the picture. I absolutely love the holds cigars, my cutter, and lighter. It's also a great conversation piece.

design flaw
Cool looking ashtray but it isn't functional. The inner tray is not notched to accommodate the outer frames cigar rests - either that or the slats supporting it are too high causing the rim of the ashtray to impede the space for the cigar to rest. Sent the 1st one back - 2nd one is the same.

Great taste with a smooth finish.
These cigars make you believe you're smoking a much more expensive cigar than you are. I recommend these. The smooth smoke gently coats your palate.

Great smoke for the price, especially with the humidor/ashtray combo!

cool combo
A really nice little piece of smoking furniture, not to mention the sticks had a great taste, they set in the humie for a week, was a enough. Great deal, will order another.

Bought this package because it was on sale. Great purchase! The ashtray is great, and the cigars are as well. Smoothe with just a little bite.

Don't recommend
Cigars are ok, but ashtray is small and drawer can hold only small cigars or cutter no lighters. Not worth the price.

Might not want to trust me
I'm not a cigar aficionado by any means and I'm probably not qualified to give an insightful, quality review. But here goes. I really liked it. Can I tall you what it tasted like? A freaking cigar. That's about it. people have described them as earthy or leathery, but I've never smoked earth or leather so all I can say is that I really enjoyed the cigar. No infused flavors or sweetness, just a dam good cigar and I was sad when it was done. It was built well, felt firm, had an easy draw, good burn, and I have no idea why anyone would care about this but ash was very sturdy. And this is off the truck. I didn't know I was supposed to let them "season". What do I know? I just wanted a freaking cigar and I stand by my choice. The ashtray was nice too. Not great, but nice. I'd order these again minus the ashtray.

I recently smoked a couple of Ramon Bueso cigars from a sampler and really enjoy enjoyed the smoke!! Burned nicely and taste was incredible. I ordered the ashtray sampler only to find a few of them were misshaped ( like a cheap cigar)? And the only one I've smoked yet burned unevenly? I sure loved the first Ramon's, but I've been Dissapointed on this one.

Wow what a taste
I received the Genesis the project ashtray sampler and was over taken. First the ashtray was awesome but the cigars were unbelievable. They had such an unremarkable taste. It is one of the top tasting cigars that I have had the pleasure to try. Hats off to the producers and to the sellers (CI of course)

Genesis: The Project Ashtray Sampler
Ashtray is unique and finely crafted. They even put a sheet of glass in the ashtray portion so the ashes don't mar the wood finish. Cigars are outstanding--full bodied, flavorful and an even burn.

Simply great!
Nice ashtray and cigars are very good too

Bueso's Little Wooden Box
If your looking to try a great everyday smoke, look no further than this Genesis Sampler. A good dark maduro with no heavy after taste. It burns well and the construction is tight. You'll be pleasantly surprised with this cigar... And as a bonus, you get the cigars with a beautiful wooden ashtray with a nice little storage drawer for up to 6 cigars!! The ash tray is removable for easy cleaning. All this and a great price too! Try it, you can't go wrong!!

Ash Tray Sampler
Each slot cigar is slight to high your cigars leans back towards you and doesn't sit flat. I guess it suppose to allow the ash to be lifted up, but the cigar slides back too. Cigar storage is great though

cigars suprisingly smooth, full flavored, nice even burn. I liked them so much I ordered more in a bigger size (6x60, which I actually prefer) the ashtray is nothing great, fairly low quality, sub-par construction.
Customer Testimonials
This came sooner than I expected and was beautiful! A lot of the reviews are mixed about the ashtray, but mine is perfect and Genesis The Project is very tasteful, goes very well with a cup of coffee.
I bought a box of 20 Genesis robustos a few weeks ago and really enjoy the cigar. I decided to buy the sampler ashtray deal because the cigars are that good and other reviews were positive about the ashtray. The ashtray is pretty cool. I slotted the tray with a quarter round file where the cigar will rest and touched it up with a polyurethane stain, Minwax Honey Oak 370 to be exact. To get the tray out, either remove the drawer or open it halfway and push the tray out the top of the box with your fingers. The tray also has a sheet of glass on the bottom that protects the RB logo. The glass is held in place with moulding. It's very nice, I am happy I bought it.
Fired one of these up as soon as I got it. So far wasn't too impressed with the cigar, but the ashtray was well worth the money. Going to give the cigars time to age a few months in one of my humidors. The first one I fired up just seemed dry and tasteless. I am a full flavored cigar smoker. It's all about preference and what you like mild to full flavor. Cigars International is my favorite website to purchase cigars and I will keep coming back.
Just got the ashtray sampler in. Construction is maybe C+ to B-. Lacquer is pretty recent, wood doesn't match up in several places and is rough under the lacquer in 30% of the tray. Spent 10 minutes rubbing the rough spots with 00 steel wool and it's pretty smooth action on the drawer and ash tray access. Cigars are very soft and cello unsealed. Going to rest them and come back about the stogies. Not bad for the price, but if you are comfortable with woodworking, spend a couple bucks for the wood and do better yourself. I'll be removing the drawer so I can fit my usual 5x50/6x60 smokes and just put it in my stogie go bag.
The stick was thick and juicy as described. Very pleased with the burn and scents. The ashtray on the other hand. The tray was gapped and allowed asshes to fall into the drawer. Also it didn't provide a divet for the finger. So putting it down was a balancing act. My plan is to cut a piece of acrylic snug to fit in the opening, attach a mini puck, and turn it to a mini-dor. Also rout out the divets on the tray so the stick will rest neatly as it should. Understood, it is a project.
Coffee and creamy testure make this cigar one of my favorite dessert smokes. The ashtray is great and looks great on my coffee table. I leave my lights and cigar cutters in the little drawer.
Picked up this sampler back in mid 2013. I was excited to give it a try and smoked one that weekend. Really tight draw had to work on it to smoke. Gave up and let them sit for a while. The ashtray is a great concept but as reported the cigar doesn't sit on the ashtray that well. I used the Dremel and took a little off and it works great now,nice touch with the ashtray keeping all the stuff together. Now 8 months later and I tried another cigar and WOW great smoke, nice even draw, lots of smoke output and plenty of flavor, ash stuck around for about two inches till I tapped it off. Nice dark wrapper with a slight sheen. Earthy flavor with hints of that familiar barnyard we love. I don't know the flavor but I got a slight floral taste that was nice. All in all a great smoke, that I would put at a medium almost full. Give it a try you won't go wrong. Just be patient and let them rest a while.
Getting quite an ashtray collection & my Genesis The Project Ashtray is one of my favorites. It's furniture quality, so I haven't actually used it except to store supplies. The deal I got was 25% off, so I was thrilled to find the quality & flavor of the Ramon Bueso offerings is on par with many high dollar sticks. Smoked one & am storing five. Good cigar. Beautiful ashtray. Great deal.
I don't get the bad reviews on this cigar. I think it is by far one of the best cigars I've had for the price and I've smoked my share of different cigars both expensive and cheap. This cigar has everything you would expect out of a much more expensive cigar and I've been smoking cigars for 30 years. This cigar starts off with a coca coffee flavor with a hint of pepper and spice. Great all the way down to the nub. Draw on it slowly and enjoy the flavor. Don't let this one pass you by.
I am pretty satisfied with it, the cigars were fairly decent, although they definitely need more time in the humidor to even out. I let the cigars sit in my humidor for about a week before trying one, just to get a baseline on these fellas. Even burn, easy to light with a decently tight light colored ash. The draw was good, plenty of decent smoke. They definitely need more time though, to even out the taste. I'll give it six months or so then try another. The ashtray is nifty, I like the little drawer to keep all my little odds and ends in. As a plus, my wife thinks it's pretty.
The cigar is ok nothing special but the ash tray is perfect. Love the great little compartment where you can store lighters and cutters.
Ashtray I got had a broken knob on the drawer, but let me tell you once I got inside WOW! I am going to hide these from myself. Soon as I had the first one I wanted another one. Great taste good burn.
I didn't know what to expect with the Genesis cigars. This cigar exceeded my expectations and my friends enjoyed it as well. The box it came in doubles as an ashtray which is a nice touch and you can store your lighters, cutters and punches in the bottom tray if needed. Highly recommended!
This is a nice little gift for a cigar smoker. The cigars are pretty good and the tray to hold your lighters and cutters is a great idea. The only issue is the ashtray.....they didn't build it right. There are cut outs on the outer frame but the ashtray, which is removable, does not have the notches to hold your cigar. Therefore, you end up having to put your cigar in the ashtray at the corners. Kind of a disappointment, actually.
Originally ordered for the cool ashtray but after smoking one of the cigars its the other way around and the tray was just a bonus. The construction was excellent and had tight roll but amazingly the draw was on point the while way through. The burn was a hair off most likely because I smoked it as soon as I opened the box from CI and the flavor was earthy with hints of coffee and cream, and a flavor I cant describe because I have never experienced it before but it was great. Like I said the draw was perfect and a lot of smoke. This cigar quickly moved up to my top 5 brands list and I can see an order for a box in my future.
Just received this afternoon, larger than you would think, have decided to put them in my humidor for now to let them nap, have learned that they are much better tasting after letting them stabilize for a bit.
I've had this for a couple months now. I smoked one of the 'gars after letting it rest for awhile, it was pretty good. I'm not sophisticated enough to pick up on specific flavors or aromas but the overall taste was ok, nothing to write home about really. Still have 3 sticks left, letting them rest some more and hoping that maybe some aging will develop some flavors. As for the ashtray itself. It's still going strong after 2.5 months, but I noticed about a month ago that it's off center now. It no longer sits flat on the table, it has this annoying wobble, like when a table leg is slightly shorter then it's opposite leg. Dunno why this happened, it was fine when I received it.
just sayin', this is one delicious stick. I got it in the pre black friday sizzler deal and I would definitely buy a box in the future. I've heard it said that the proof is in the ash, I had 2/3 of the cigar ash before I knocked it off myself, and it didn't come off without some convincing. Very satisfied.
Just like the last dude, just got my ashtray combo today. I haven't sparked up the cigar yet, they arrived kinda cold from the outside temps and wanna give 'em a chance to warm up for a few days and stabilize. The ashtray is awesome though; really sharp and a lot bigger than the pics make it look. It's well constructed, drawer opens/closes without a problem and it's perfect to store my new cutter and lighter. Not to mention, got it in 2 days from order. All in all, perfect purchase...thanks CI.
Just got this sampler in today! I've not tried the Genesis Cigar yet but the ashtray is pretty sweet; I love the drawer to hold my lighter and cutter while I'm smoking. Only thing is the tray insert comes above the cigar holders. It needs to be lowered about an 1/4 inch to not be in the way of the cigar.
