Ramon Bueso Genesis The Project

Description

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.

Genesis The Project by Ramon Bueso

Steve R

This is the question I heard over and over (and over) throughout CIGARfest 2012. Indeed, aside from us hosting our 9th annual CIGARfest, which turned out to be a huge success for 6,000+ cigar lunatics, Ramon Bueso was the buzz word of the day, every day, between May 2nd and May 6th. So who is Ramon Bueso? Lemme fill you in with some back story.

The first tobacco farm in Honduras was located on Ramon's family's land. It was here where Ramon was first introduced to tobacco and the premium cigar industry. His passion grew, and he became a roller at the young age of 15, only to evolve into an instrumental voice and mind inside the mighty Villazon factory – the original, Honduran-based home of legendary brands such as Punch, Hoyo de Monterrey, and Excalibur....to name a few. He worked alongside Estelo Padron, Benji Menendez, and Frank Llaneza – some of the most powerful and influential men in the business. To put it simply, Ramon Bueso has been crafting, creating, and perfecting some of the industry’s biggest and best-known cigars for nearly 40 years, including many of the cigars you've likely had and enjoyed.

Back to CIGARfest 2012. The official launch of Ramon’s first full release, Genesis The Project. 6,000 faithful enthusiasts from the CI Nation were introduced to both Ramon and his creative genius, thanks to an aggressive approach and successful execution. What began as an unknown became one of the most talked about – and often raved about – cigars of the weekend, catching countless attendees by surprise, pleasantly. Many had a chance to sample the cigar before the main events, and the commentary was exciting, to say the least. In a nutshell and without warning, Ramon Bueso and Genesis The Project took CIGARfest by storm.

I’ll be honest with you. I am not writing a review here. I was lucky enough to receive a few dozen Genesis cigars throughout the event, and not one went to waste. No matter how many cigars I burned throughout the 5 days of madness – and trust me, I burned a ton – I found myself craving more of this cigar. My reason for this ‘Staff Review’ is not to give you my tasting notes on the cigar, but to urge you to get acquainted with it. Stars are born in this industry daily, and stars fade even faster. But Ramon is no star, nor does he want to be. He’s simply a simple cigar-maker with a tremendous level of tobacco knowledge and experience, and an innate ability to utilize this knowledge and experience through crafting a delicious, top-notch cigar.

Although simple, we cigar enthusiasts are a frugal, finicky bunch. We love cigars, but we have developed our preferred tastes, and always seek the best, new cigar to fit our needs at a price that fits our budget. We are rarely content with the norm. We are always looking to expand. It’s a never-ending circle of cigar-frenzied, smoke-filled madness, but the rewards are oh-so-sweet.

That’s me to a ‘T’ - does this sound like you? If so, consider Ramon Bueso a new avenue to expand. If you like bold, eventful cigars with complexity and richness, this cigar comes highly recommended by me as well as hundreds if not thousands of attendees at CIGARfest 2012. My suggestion: get acquainted with Ramon Bueso, because you’ll be seeing a lot of him in the near future.
