Rounding out the best new cigar line in years, welcome Genesis Habano.
Ramon Bueso has taken the industry by storm in the past two years, but he has been honing his craft since 1977. He played an integral part in catapulting the legendary Villazon factory to new heights, and worked right alongside master-blenders such as Frank Llaneza and Estelo Padron. Responsible for highly-acclaimed blends from Hoyo de Monterrey to Punch, Ramon’s credentials speak for themselves.
Genesis Habano is Ramon’s third offering, and brings his core line full circle. Ramon took his time with this concoction, and meticulously scoured through endless wrappers leaves until he was satisfied that he had hit a homerun. After securing his choice wrapper and adding a hearty portion of select ligeros to Genesis Habanos core, Ramon has set the stage for an instant showstopper. Two years on tinkering behind him, Ramon’s pride and joy, Genesis Habano, has finally come to fruition, and the result was most certainly worth the wait. His original Genesis blend was tweaked to perfection and paired with a dark, leathery, and insanely delicious Ecuadorian Habano ligero wrapper, to create a bold, unique experience. A rich and hearty tobacco core laced with ligero is backed by complex notes of wood, espresso, pepper, honey, and roasted nuts in this smooth, full-bodied creation.
The Xi2 cutters are the latest from the makers of the original Xikar cutter. The Xi2 has 440 stainless blades hardened to a Rockwell C rating of 56, and are buffed to razor sharpness. The result is the hardest, sharpest blade you can buy. The classic Xikar shape means ergonomics and power. The exterior is composed of a heavy-duty, yet lightweight nylon fiberglass composite with a metallic color.
The Xikar Xi2 case contains two stainless steel blades with an ergonomic shape and spring-loaded double guillotine action to provide the finest, most even cut you can get. Manufacturer-provided lifetime warranty on the product.
