Ramon Bueso Genesis The Project

Everybody Loves Ramon!

Telling the Genesis story with just two paragraphs - or even three - is extremely difficult. Not to mention, it can’t possibly come close to doing the cigar and its creator justice. Genesis deserves pages of praise, but catalog pages cost a whole lot of money, so our space here is limited. That said, here’s the skinny.

Genesis is a small-batch super-premium, meticulously hand-crafted by Ramon Bueso in Honduras. Who is Ramon Bueso? Trust me when I tell you he isn’t some ho-hum street corner vendor. Quite the opposite, in fact, Ramon has been an integral player in the cigar industry for nearly 4 decades. Since 1977, Ramon has been honing his mastery of cigars and has perfected every facet of cigar production. From grower to roller to master-blender to factory supervisor. Early in his career, Ramon Bueso was vital in catapulting the legendary Villazon factory to new heights, working alongside cigar legends Frank Llaneza and Estelo Padron, and producing some of the world’s biggest and most successful blends in the process. Blends you enjoy early and often, from the likes of Hoyo de Monterrey, Excalibur, Punch, and so much more.

Truth is, Ramon’s mind and hands have created more brands and blends than one can accurately count, let alone imagine. But this....this is by far his most irresistible creation yet. His raison d’etre, if you will. Genesis began as ‘The Project,’ a limited production, local favorite exclusive to the Honduran market, mostly used for gifts and events. Now available on a grander scale, the Genesis is ready to make its mark. The lush, well-aged tobaccos used to craft Genesis deliver a scrumptious and complex medium to full-bodied bouquet. An exceedingly complex core of vintage long-fillers from Nicaragua and Honduras, including select ligeros, visos, and secos. This complex recipe is expertly blended, secured inside a feisty Jamastran binder, then cloaked by a dark and inviting, triple-fermented Connecticut Broadleaf maduro wrapper boasting gorgeous oils. From the very first puff, it’s clear this cigar is something special. Each Genesis wastes no time asserting its distinct array of eventful profile. Thick and creamy flavor coats the palate, dusting the taste buds with hearty notes of espresso, roasted nuts, earth, and nutmeg. The finish is long and savory, offering a unique spicy-sweetness after each puff. Complex, yet highly refined and skillfully balanced, Genesis is a mere peak into the window of Ramon Bueso’s extraordinary talents. Genesis The Project....it’s just the beginning.

This cigar has flavor and smoke. I don't have too many cigars that I want to buy over again, but this will be one that I add to the Fuente Hemingways, the Sancho Panzas and the Padrons.

I like them.
5 out of 5
A Boutique brand Gem....
I normally purchase higher end brands (more expensive) and my favorite sticks are usually a dark oily. Sweet, Nicaraguan blend of some sort but these sticks prove that, just because it's more expensive and more familiar of a brand... does not mean that you can't find the same quality in a boutique brand stick for a much cheaper price! These ramon bueso's Genisis project are a great smoke. It's dark, oily, sweet with lots of smoke with an easy draw on every stick. I enjoy them on my dock at my boat early in the morning with my coffee. It's truly a great smoke for guy's like me that like a little punch but not to much in there smoke's. If ya haven't tried them I suggest you do. It's affordable and the entire line of Ramons are great so ya can't go wrong with these. I always have some of these in my humidor.

Grass cutter
I’m not much of a reviewer since the only time I smoke is when cutting the grass. I like my cigars like my beer, dark. These are great cigars for grass cutting (keeping the bugs away). Mild, evenly burning, a pleasure to smoke and no bugs in my face!

Deep taste
They ferment the center of the tobacco wrap so you get an Evan deep rich flavor.

Middle of the road
Not real pleased with the Genesis Project. Started out ok but fell off by the end of the 1st third. The taste fell flat with just a medium flavor. Never regained any true flavor and got somewhat bitter by the end of the 2nd third. Would not buy a box and as far as a recommendation, well I would say try it and judge for yourself. Everyone has their on taste, but this isn't for me.

Crazy good!
Just an awesome medium-full cigar with a great burn and fantastic, deep flavor. I try to keep these in stock. After 4 years of enjoying this stick (easily 150 +), I MIGHT have had one or two with a burn or draw issue, but I honestly can't remember such a thing...Fortunately, C.I. has kept these treats at a pretty reasonable price point. If you like a medium-full maduro and you've not yet tried these, get yourself a 5'er and see for yourself. ...You're welcome....

This cigar is nearly perfect. The flavor is great, the smoke is great, the burn is fairly even(rarely, but occasionally tight- easily fixable with a poke). I love it when they go on sale. Stock up!!!!

Genesis, The Project, Robusto
A well made, full flavored maduro with a pleasing aroma. Have enjoyed them several times over the last few years. The only negative I can offer is that some of them tend to be rolled too tight which constricts the draw. I would buy them again.

Always a good stick.
I've loved this cigar since its inception. I've bought many boxes over the past few years, and have never been let down. Good solid flavor and a fine, even burning grey ash... What more could you want? I first bought them on a whim when they came out, and found them to be a real jewel for the price. The quality has not subsided like so many once-great cigars I've seen come and go.

This is a nice smoke but my first order was a bigger ring size. This smokes hot which takes away from some of the flavor. I recommend this cigar in the larger ring size for a rick, smooth experience.

Needs rest but good cigar.
Pretty green right out the box planed on aging a while I know as a fact they get really really good after 6-12 months at 65/65. Out the box it is more harsh and was to strong for me it like taking ba swallow out of a dip cup first light haha. Great cigar if you have time to let it chill and smooth out.

I've like these for a long time. Wished they were still a secret. They have a smooth creamy taste with plenty of smoke. Construction has always been good. If you keep them in a humidor for a while; they burn great.

This is a great smoke. Good steady pull, even burn, rich and flavorful. I have never been disappointed with these. Other cigar smokers who I introduce to these say the same thing. You don't have to pay $20 to get an excellent smoke. Nor do you have to go with the big name brands.

Your humidor needs a few of these
I am not a wordsmith who can tell of notes of oak, with a peppery hint of...... Instead I'm just a guy who smokes 4 or 5 cigars a week and have found I love. I enjoy having a variety in my humidor and I like to smoke a 5 Vegas or Gurhka frequently but my go to cigar in the box is hands down The Project! I'm partial to the torpedo, just a flat out great smoke!

Excellent Smoke for the money. Perfect draw lots of smoke very well made. Spicy start with hazelnut and leather. Finishes bold with rich dark concentrated power. Reminds me of Padron at a fraction of the cost but not as refined. I'll always keep these in my box. Superb!

I came across this cigar when trying a sampler. It was smooth and had a good draw right to the finish. I was impressed and sad when I got to the end, (I mean I was able to smoke it down until i couldn't hold it) because I wanted more. the price was right so I bought a box. I am not an everyday smoker, I like to relax and enjoy the cigars I smoke. This Cigar delivers everything that is advertised. This is now one of my first choices to go to. There will always a few in my humidor.

A decent enough smoke. Despite a dark wrapper the taste tends toward the mild.The draw is uneven. The burn is consistent but not even. The cigarctends to canoe rather early and stays that way. It was acceptable enough to smoke but I wouldn’t buy it again.

Good, Consistent Taste
After trying one, I bought a box. My initial "liking it" is confirmed but, having smoked several more, I've found that not every stick is the same as the previous one. Some will run a little... some draw a bit heavier. Also, I'm looking for a cigar that will be a tad milder. Overall, these are a good smoke I will enjoy and can be genuinely offered to friends.

Having tried the Bueso Genesis The Project Toro (6 x 50) and Gordo (6.5 x 60) and found them immensely enjoyable and consistent from stick to stick, I decided to take CI up on a special offer and give the Muy Bueso (robusto) a try. I wasn't disappointed! In my view, it offered a more refined flavor while retaining the complexity and finish of its predecessors. I can't wait to try a larger version to be able to savor this tasty appelation for a longer session.

I've changed
I was a 90% Macanudo Maduro smoker, now I'm a 90% Ramon Bueso smoker.

a weird combo
I got this cigar in a Ultimate Humidor Combo #451 from this site. When taking it out of the wrapper it is hard and rolled tightly. The draw is tight giving little smoke in the beginning which seems to loosen up almost half way though. but has tight spots along the way. When smoking this cigar it has a oily taste that to me isn't pleasing. after 1/4 of the way though it comes in with a note of spice like pepper which I indeed liked but still the oily taste is a finishing unpleasant. This is labeled a strong cigar. I don't find the smoke to be strong or over powering. This cigar at least to me is over rated it should be labeled as a medium to light cigar

My favorite “won’t break the bank” cigar
Tried one in a sampler and fell in love. Easy, smooth smoke with good, rich and creamy flavor. This is easily my favorite cigar that won’t make the wife angry when she sees that I ordered more.

This is a really nice cigar! I like maduro cigars and I can rate this in the upper 80% category. A tasty medium burn all the way down.

Same great smoke, higher prices.
When Ramon Bueso first introduced these cigars, the price was alluring, set at a level of affordability to match most puffers' pocketbooks. Success has pushed the price up, and now I jump on them when deals are offered

A Really Fine Smoke
For a smoke that not only tastes great, burns great and is budget friendly, you really need to try this stick. I keep coming after these. Don’t be fooled by the decent price point, put some of these in your rotation.

Delightful surprise!
One of the great surprises of the year! Firm (but not heavy) draw; rich, dark tobacco flavors with heady nuances of dark coffee and unsweetened cocoa that leave a lingering and slightly sweet finish. Permanent residents of my humidor!

Worth Every Penny
Yes, the arctic blast (winter 2017/18) even reached North Carolina. Thus, I hadn't had a cigar for several weeks but broke out a "Project" yesterday. I forgot just how good they are. Perfect draw/burn. Lots of smoke with a sweet, lingering finish. How this oily, tasty beauty isn't rated 90+ is beyond me. Worth every penny.

Made My Top 5 List
If you're looking for a full flavored smoke from start to finish, try the Ramon Bueso Genesis The Project. This is a beautifully made cigar. Rich leather colored wrapper with a slight oily sheen, well constructed, plenty of smoke, and tons of flavor. After smoking a couple of these cigars it not only made my top 5 list, but I now crave them. Highly recommended.

Best maduro cigar for the money
I had smoked the Ramon Bueso Habano previously and enjoyed the cigar. I decided to try a box of the Genesis the Project Robusto cigars. The gamble paid off. These cigars are flavor bombs. They have become my absolute favorites. I plan to order another box soon.

disappointed but maybe it's my lack of experience
I love the robusto and toro. And I love a big ring. So I had high hopes. Unfortunately, didn't deliver the flavor or the other vitolas. And significant burn problems. What a shame. I highly recommend the robusto and toro. I'm not sure what happened to the gordo. probably a more experienced cigar whisperer could have figured out what to do to improve the gordo experience.

A Consistently Damn Good Cigar
To get 5 stars from me, you better be consistently good. And Genesis The Project has rung that bell for me since 2013 without fail. The cigar has never disappointed. I can count on great creaminess and good full flavor. It is my favorite cigar hands down. I've had more expensive cigars, but I didn't get the same satisfaction that I've consistently rec'd from Ramon's Genesis The Project. I wish they would go on sale more often, but hey, you can have everything. If you like a full flavored cigar with a creamy beginning, a great even burn and swirls of tastes throughout the experience, this cigar is for you. I can't tell you how many times I've burned Genesis The Project down to less than two inches. It's that good.

Muy Bueso - maybe too much
The robusto is one of my favorite cigars, period. But I haven't had as good an experience with the 6x60. it's improving after a few weeks in the humidor but it's still A) not as tasty as the robusto and b) wrapper flaking and inconsistent burn. I'm guessing that the flavor difference is in the wrapper-to-filler ratio, where the robusto has more wrapper per filler. The burn issues with 6x60 might just be this box i bought. Not enough experience. I think, though I love big rings, I'll stick with the robusto on Genesis.

This was a Fantastic Suprise!
This cigar starts off as a creamy well balanced smoke that slowly builds on the subtle at first notes of semi sweet chocolate, earth and a touch of leather that grow into a complex plate of added chocolate, cocoa bean with just enough spice to let you know that your going to burn your fingers before you want to put this one down!

Genesis the Project
This is a pretty decent low cost stick. I've just gotten some inconsistencies in the flavor profile and sometimes end up with overwhelming pepper. But if your looking for a low cost everyday stick, give this one a try

Consistently good smoke
These have been a staple of my humidor while I sample many others. Genesis stacks up well to big name brands, but at bargain prices that CI regularly runs on sale. Can't remember a roll that was too tight or loose, rich (if not complex) flavor.

Never had a Ramon Bueso before, when I smoked the first one it blew me away. This is by far one of the smoothest cigars I have smoked and enjoyed. I logged on to CI just to buy more of them today. It starts out with a nice creamy note that turns into a wood like taste in the 2nd 3RD, it finishes like a champ. Love this cigar.

Excellent!!
It took me awhile to figure out that I needed the age these in the humidor for a little bit but once I did the results were incredible they produced a full-flavored and smooth smoke that lasted me the perfect amount of time of right over an hour. At first they gave me tongue bite but that was before I realized they needed to be aged properly and after that happened I smoke them to the nub every time even burn and beautiful smoke I would definitely buy again!

Amazing sticks !!!
If you haven’t tried these then you don’t know what your missing. These are absolutely wonderful sticks and they don’t break the bank. One of the best Honduran cigars I have ever had, a definite humidor keeper!!

Tasty and inviting
These sticks are well made, with a nice tight draw and an ash that won't quit. The flavors are spicy and nutty and pair well with pretty much anything to drink. I highly recommend these to anyone who enjoys dark, full-bodied cigars.

Robust, medium-well sirloin steak smoke!
I recently got a 5 pack of Ramon Bueso Genesis Torpedoes. This was an excellent smoke from start to finish. Great smoothness starting off with flavors of mild nuts and leather, then developing into a more robust medium-well sirloin steak taste. Fantastic draw and consistent burn. I will buy these again, especially at the great CI prices!

I know, I know, nothing is 5 star worthy. However...this stick is a thing of beauty, Construction, DING! Burn, Ding! Flavor notes, Ding AGAIN! Ramon Bueso Genesis "The Project" is a medium to full bodied smoke that is big an flavor. One look at this baby and your saying "Now that's going to be a powerhouse", truth is, it's not, it's just right. Choose wisely my friends.

Always Consitent
The Bueso has always been one of my go to sticks. The construction, burn flavor and strength are always there. I wish I could say this about some other brands (Are you listening Gurkha). I would say the Buoso is not for the weak of heart. To Me it is strong and full flavored on all thirds. They are always in the humi.

I got a few of these in a sampler a while back they were toothy and smoked great. So I saw this and decided to put some in the box. Not the same at all. Don't know if they changed the blend or what but it's not the same. Most were too tight to draw on to add to the displeasure.

Best Cigar I've Had In Years
The size of this particular cigar combined with the dark mahogany, and oily wrapper had me a little apprehensive at first since personally, I tend to favor more mild-to-medium, lighter cigars. But I picked up 5 anyway because I had read good things about them. Everything I read was true. These are amazingly good, very smooth yet really complex and interesting flavors come through with every draw. Can't smoke enough of these things now.
5 out of 5
Best kept secret.
If you read the CI review Of the Ramon Bueso Genesis 'The Project' it all sound to good to be true. Well, it's not - this is one of the best value cigars out there, and smokes like a much more expensive premium brand.......delicious

Ramon Bueso is on the map for me with the Genesis - The Project. It has very unique metallic zing to was prevalent throughout the smoke. Very rich in cream and it stood and has quickly become one of my favorite stogies!

Don't tell anyone!
This is one of those cigars that I hate to review. Because their so good and affordable that you don't want anyone else to know, lest the demand and price increase! However the cats out of the bag as their is no shortage of praise for this stick and it's no longer a secret. The name of this cigar is as perfect as its performance under fire. No doubt Moses would have been proud to smoke a Genisis and I am too. Terrific balance and a full flavor, earth and spice with amazing notes of coconut mid way through. Even burning with few flaws, terrific oily wrap, again a full flavored cigar but with a balanced smoothness that allows for inhalation, which I love. Grab a stick, a chair and a tumbler of bourbon and don't make any more plans. The perfect cigar at the end of the day!
5 out of 5
The only way it could be better is if I let it age in my humidor.
For the price you can not find a better gordo. This cigar should be bought in this size, as the smaller sizes are not as flavorful. I wish I would have let it age al ittle longer, but I did not have patience.

My favorite so far (newb)
i'm very new to cigars. got this in the ultimate humidor sampler. i've had 5 other cigars so far. this is the first with a darker wrapper, first in the medium/bold category. my tastes run to strong/bold in food and drink. maybe that influences this review. compared to the very few other cigars I've tried, this is by far the best. i could tell from the first draw, the flavor was so much better than the others. To be fair, I didn't read the description or reviews until after I'd already lit it. I'm not even done the 1st third. I had to get on here and put these sticks in my wish list. Definitely like them, something to aspire to as an every day smoke. until then, special occasions!
5 out of 5
Fine, Fine Cigar
This is a fine, fine cigar. It quickly leaped to the top of my list. Very good burn, lots of smoke, solid taste from the first inch to the last. Up there with the Sancho Panza Double Maduro. I can't wait to have another. If you're looking for a near-full flavored cigar, at this price point, go no further.

Beautiful hardly describes this "Project" and it's multi-faceted flavor profile. Deep rich notes of leather and subtle overlaps of spice and well worth it's paltry price. Definitely on my list of "to keep in the humidor at all times."

Well made
First thing I noticed was the cigar was well rolled. Good feel when I held it, no loose filler. Burnt evenly down to the last inch. Enjoyed the smoke, was a little too full for me, but that is a matter of taste. I would recommend this cigar to those looking for quality and a full smoke.

Very good smoke
This came as a sampler. Its a very nice smoke pleasant not harsh or complex. I drank it with my espresso and I agree that is goes very well with coffee. Light in flavors, which I don't mind. The burn was consistant through out. The build is nicley rolled, oily, minimal veins. I am ordering more, since the toro is at a reasonable price for 10, to see if the cigars itself is consistant if it is then it will be one of my favorite. Thanks CI for the sampler.
5 out of 5
Top Notch
This came in a sampler pack, so as far as consistency, I cannot speak. However other reviews seem to draw a consensus that there are no issues with consistency. I'm not normally a full bodied cigar smoker, however the Genesis came as a pleasant surprise. Even burn tip to nub, full body without the back of the throats issues I normally experience with full bodied stogies. Wrapped immaculately an the cap held up to my heavy mouthing. Highly recommended to all, including novices looking to branch out past light to medium bodied. Price point seems to be a great value, as well.

Ramon Bueso Torpedo....EXCELLENT!
Of all Ramon Bueso cigars offered, this Torpedo is my most reliable for full flavor with no harshness. I can always count on this one to deliver excellency from construction, lighting, draw, burn, flavor and taste. I have smoked several of these as well as other offerings RB makes. Definitely try this one soon.

Top Tier
Excellence is not a word that simply implies a finish line or goal has been reached. Sometimes, it defines what the goal is, but doesn't impose it's finality. The Genesis is a statement of what the top of the mountain might look like... without the dizziness of unnecessary altitude and thin air keeping you from enjoying the majestic view.
5 out of 5
Top choice boutique brand
Hidden gem. I've 2 boxes in my humidor. Full flavor without a big hit of nicotine. Great from start to stub. Once in a while, I'll get a hit of pepper in the first few puffs, but that mellows out to a rich, smooth smoke. Sweet, dry finish.

An excellent cigar for its price point
I've bought several boxes of the Robustos, some 5 packs of other sizes and the wooden ashtray deal with the 6 included cigars. I can recall very few issues with the quality of this great cigar. I had one 5 pack that was a little dry but that shouldn't be attributed to the manufacturer. I have tried many different brands in the CI catalogue but I keep coming back to the RB GENESIS especially when they are on sale or part of a deal. I really like the CT broadleaf maduro wrapper and the volume of smoke from this vitola as well as the sweet aftertaste. I highly recommend this cigar.

Who is Ramon Bueso?
I got this cigar as part of a CI sampler and didn't know much about Ramon Bueso. I can say that during the first third I was already adding more to my shopping cart because this smoke is right up my alley. Rich, chocolatey flavors and a perfect burn on this medium-full body cigar. I could easily see this becoming my new "go to" cigar to go with my morning coffee.

Ramon Bueso Genesis The Project
Delicious and flavorful. Very dark and oily but light on the palate. Smokes easily. I used a punch and found that made for the easiest draw.

Nice and smooth!
Love this cigar! Very smooth and creamy. I get a tight one every once in a while, but not overly tight. A must buy. These will stay in my humidor.

Not bad. A nice 3rd or 4th string backup.
Good smoke, easy on the palate for most of the journey. Burns nice and even. Gets a little sharp in taste 3/4 down. Kind of cigar to have at parties to give out to folks that don't appreciate the finer qualities of cigars. I'd buy again. Good to keep as a 3rd or 4th stringer.

FINALLY FOUND MY FULL
Been smoking premium cigars just over 7 months and never felt compelled to review one. But this....the wrapper is so seductive I just had to have one straight away after receiving a box of 20. Had been looking for a dark, full bodied cigar that didn't make me dizzy frim strength or leave me with a bitter palate. I found it all in Genesis. The box itself is a work of art. The name deeply sodered into the wood, the exquisite labels, the bright gold clasps, all make this box a collectable one. Tons of smoke from the first easy draw to the last puff. Both while savoring the mouth feel of the smoke to the aroma from the non-stop smoke billowing from the stick. 8 exhaled several relaxing breathst over the 1hr 10min experience paired with a common stout dark IPA ale on a lazy, drizzly Sunday afternoon in NJ. In my opinion, these 20 (now 19) sticks will be my treat to myself when I want to completely unwind. The strength kicked in on the final 3rd so i slowed it down, sipped the stout and savored my buzz. Happy customer!

Nice!
Surprised by how good it was. Started out a bit spicy but then mellowed into a very enjoyable smoke.

Project Robusto great smoke!
When it was compared to a Liga Pravada #9 at the price I didn't think it possible, but it was very similar. Nice oily outer wrapper, great smell even before lighting. Good draw, consistent ash not harsh even down to the end. A good quality smoke for the price.

great cigar
as an avid cigar smoker I have developed a more sophisticated taste for the nuances of higher end cigars. In addition the smoothness, complexity, and strength of higher end cigars seems to be my preference. However, Ramon Bueso Genesis the project is right up there. If I didn't know better I'd say it was a 15 - 18 dollar cigar. Truly is a masterpiece by one of the masters in the industry.

Good quality for the price
Got a sampler it set in my humidor for 1 month and just smoked it, cocoa, spice, a pepper zing on a long finish, I am a lightweight so I did get a small buzz but nothing insane. End of first third this cigar really shifted for me mellowing out in spice but picking up in strength overall excellent burn and flavor I will be ordering a box.

A HIdden Gem
Genesis the Project is another hidden gem of a cigar to be found only at Cigars International. It is similar to Ramon's Olancho, which is another fine cigar selling for a price far below its value. There's no excuse for not trying this cigar. In my opinion it is the equal of the Liga Privada #9. Honesty, it's that tasty. And it's a third the price. Perhaps making this cigar unique as well as delicious is the rare binder leaf - a Honduran Jamastran. How often have you seen that? The Project doesn't start out wowing you. It's one of the many that take 5 minutes to develop, so be patient. Once it does develop, it gives you dry earth, baking spices, chocolate, coffee, and cream. The aroma is pleasantly sweet. It's just above medium in body and in strength, so the robusto is fine for a morning smoke as well as evening. The burn is razor sharp, and the the smoke output is satisfying. I smoked it to a tiny nub, enjoying it for 1:15. If you do buy this, I recommend giving it a month in your humidor. It benefits from the time.

These things are full flavored without the bite. Full of smooth creamy smoke with flavor that will make you want to smoke it down to the nub

My favorite
Love these cigars. Occasionally I'll get one that's a little tight, but they are very flavorful. When they are on sale I'll load up.

Outstanding
I can't count how many cigars I've smoked over the years. The Ramon Bueso Genesis robusto is maduro perfection. Medium, smooth, consistent even burn, and flawless construction. Tried it in a CI sampler and have ordered two boxes since. My new favorite smoke. You won't be disappointed.

Bueso genesis the project. Good smoke
I like the Bueso the project very much. I enjoy Montecristo Media Noche and the project is very similar. I also like the size for a quick smoke. I have bought these more than once and will continue to buy them.
