Ramon Bueso Genesis The Project

Ramon's Humble Beginnings

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.

Get this in the big ring gauge
This is the best size to smoke the cigar. At this ring gauge the flavors of all the tobacco marry nicely. I am upset I have not picked up more.

Good smoke for sure
Really good cigar. I.normally prefer mellow to.kild but I really like this. Good, tight wrap with smooth draw throughout. No surprises with this stick. Starts nice and smooth and stays that way all the way through. And it's a heckuva bargain

A good smoke
The Bueso's are a quality cigar and I am enjoying them. I also am enjoying the pack of 10, a combination of smaller Projects and Edge.

The Genesis Project is muy bueno!
Rarely will you come across a cigar that combines such a first class smoke with a value price! Now I can enjoy a cigar that smokes like those you save for a special occasion every day. Ramon Bueso’s The Genesis Project is now my “go to” cigar!

Always searching for new flavor and quality and these two are most enjoyable. Different flavors on both but on their own I enjoy each. Price and service the best as always.

Genesis The Project
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.

Ramon Bueso
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.

I lit my first The Project 2 days ago after receiving them about 2 weeks ago and what a great surprise. Nice even draw, great ash and flavors abound. I smoked it to the very end and no hot bite at all. This will be a repeat buy. Thanks CI.

Fantastic "budget stick" had a burn issue on my first one that left me a little disappointed, but every one smoked since that one had been filled with great flavor and a good draw. This is one of my go to cigars.

A fine cigar
Spicy, and rich, got it as I do most cigars, in the build your own mega sampler. If you see it there, get it. At 2-3 bucks a stick, it is a steal. No complaints at all.

Ramon Bueso Genesis Muy Bueso
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

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

Go big or not at all
My favorite of the Bueso line. I find that in this blend bigger is better. The smaller vitola's are a bit bland. Great flavor and great body .

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.
5 out of 5
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!
5 out of 5
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.

A fantastic surprise
An absolute delight of a cigar. Wish I could show a picture of the razor sharp burn and perfect ash. That was only surpassed by the incredible smooth taste and flavors all the way through. Love it when a cigar changes flavors a bit halfway through and this one did not disappoint. In my top 3 for sure

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
5 out of 5
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!!
5 out of 5
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!

Ramon Bueso Genesis "the project"
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.

Disappointed
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

Love this smoke.
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!

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.

In the past I have bought the Robusto and enjoyed it very much. The Toro was disappointing not as much flavor as I was hoping for.

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!

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.

More of these in my life would be a great thing.
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."
4 out of 5
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.

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.

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!

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.
5 out of 5
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.

middle of the road
it finished nicely and burned ok. maybe i should have let it rest as i took it out the sampler pack straight from the mailbox. full flavor with plenty of smoke. a little hot but ok.smoke time about 1 hour and 3 shots of Crown Black.

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.

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.

Age E
I've bought seven boxes so far, and three of the Habanos. I have two boxes of Project aging, one for two years now. Two sticks are gone to the wind, one on my birthday, and the next because I just couldn't resist. If some of you ever wonder which cigars are worth aging, this Project ages very nicely! It has a natural spicy sweetness and though as some have said, a few are tight on the draw, they are hand-rolled after all and that's to be expected. Careful work with a round toothpick usually cures that issue. This is one of the best tasting cigars I've had in 46 years of smoking!
5 out of 5
Always a great choice!!
I have a need to keep these babies in my humi all the time. They are always a good choice. I am always in the mood for one. Always consistently well made and perfect flavor profile for my taste. They are just so good!! The price is right and CI's service is the best!!! What more could I ask for. Just talking about them makes me want one. So to the humi I go. HO Ho Ho!!
4 out of 5
Good, with exceptions
Very well constructed, but out of the box of 20, 2-3 were plugged. It is a very solid well made cigar, my only other complaint is the flavor and aroma was a bit one dimensional. But overall, it is a good, long burning cigar.
5 out of 5
An eye opener
I'm usually a one a day a mild cigar smoker. However I really enjoyed this Ramon bueso. Took a couple puffs to get used to it but the flavor is very smooth burns evenly. I think I might switch to medium cigars as this one really peaked my interest! I definitely plan on buying more of these babies

My Go-To cigar
This is a wonderful cigar; I have been smoking them for a couple of years and it has become my “go to” cigar. Occasionally, there might be an ugly leaf in the wrapper, but generally they are constructed as well as the higher priced cigars. To my poorly developed palate, this medium-full smoke has earth and leather flavors with little spiciness (a good attribute to me) and leather in the background. It smokes evenly and does not finish hot or overly harsh — a consistent smoke. My suggestion says don’t pass this up.

Fantastic! Even beats several Cubans and Dominicans!!
Absolutely superb stick! Starts with bold coffee and smooth cream, adds undertones of roasted nuts about halfway through, then the last quarter is nutmeg and cloves. Pairs amazingly with amaretto as an after dinner dessert. Bought 2 boxes so far, planning on getting 2 or 3 more!!!

Ramon Bueso Consistently Great.
Ramon Bueso toro. This was my second box and the cigars are consistent, good burn, good drawl, firm 2 to 3 inch ash. Enjoy every one. This is now one of my go to cigars because I like to try other brands in my price range. I have been a long term cigar smoker. Now off to try another cigar, enjoy the day. Gene

GREAT SMOKE TO THE END
Just smoked my first Bueso Genesis the Project. Excellent burn and draw...no need to relight...rich full flavor yet very mild to the tongue. Smoked the cigar down to the last inch and 3/4...never got hot or harsh even down to the end. Very pleased and would highly recommend.

I'm so glad a friend of mine turned me on to Ramon Bueso's cigars. They have quickly become some of my favorite cigars that I smoke often and my humidor is full of them. Truly my go to cigar. Perfect construction, full flavored, and laser sharp burn is just a few things you can expect from this stick. I would put this cigar up against any and at 5 times the cost. You want a great cigar at a great price that you won't be able to put down? Jump on on this cigar.

Loved it! Ve
I was very happy with the taste, smoked it all the way down. Wrapper was very nice and it burned evenly throughout the whole stick and also stayed lit without any issuse. The amount of smoke from each puff was nice as well. I got one of these in a sampler and I think I will be adding a set of these to my humidor. Thanks a lot!

In The Beginning...
After years of CI's constant promotion, I decided to give the Genesis Project a try. I'm glad I did. An impressive cigar with a slow, even burn and a white ash that contrasts it's appetizing, oily, maduro wrapper. Instantly on light up I was greeted by that familiar aroma found only in a Connecticut leaf. The cigar fell right in my preferences of spice and just the right amount of tooth with generous plumes of fragrant smoke. The cigar was eventful to the end, changing to a more creamy notes with espresso and leather on the finish with still a hint of spice. I'm happy to add this cigar to my rotation. Ramon scored a hit with the Genesis Project.

Should've been great I think
I received 1 of these in a sampler pack. I was very excited to smoke this one, the wrapper looks amazing, and the smell coming off it is amazing. Mine unfortunately had a huge stem in it that ran from the just under the band up to the foot. It tasted great and had a great aroma but due to construction issues I did not enjoy this stick. Wish I had another to compare, bad luck I think.

Tasty, Tasty.. Love the dark oily "Mellow" wrapper.. I would have given it a 5 if it wasn't for 2 out of 5 had uneven burn and all 5 had an over smokey "Still Burn" so much so that it draws attention especially when sat down for a rest ... loved their flaver,, Nubbed them all

Excellent Cigar
Ramon Bueso Genesis The Project, in general, are all very nice smokes, even burns, well wrapped and with very little bite as it shortens. In particular, I'm particular to the Torpedo since it just about fits my grip, and smoking time... Usually a nice double single-malt.

Possibly the best maduro I've ever had.
I received one of these as part of sampler. After letting rest in my humidor for a couple of months i decided to light it up. This may be the best maduro i've ever smoked. Medium-full smoke with a fantastic flavor of coffee and dark chocolate. If this go on sale I'll certainly be picking up a box, but even at the current price they are more than worth the money. This cigar could easily pass for $10 a piece with how good it was.

Best Cigar I've Smoked
Best cigar I've smoked! Great burn, taste, pull and just all around awesome cigar. Well done and I'll be buying a ton of these.

No need for therapy.
This cigar is ahead of all the rest, now I have never had a Padron but i have had most of the other high end cigars and this stands alone. The Odyssey is your morning cigar with a cup of coffee and the Genesis is the evening smoke with a glass of bourbon and some Coltrane. Mr. Bueso you are my therapist.

Home Run!!
Got his one in a humidor bundle. I have to say that I absolutely enjoyed smoking this cigar. It had a perfect draw and it burned slow and even. Very flavorful, but not too overpowering. The wrapper cracked and started to come apart a bit toward the end, but it was nearly done so it didn't effect anything. I've seen some negative reviews on this one, and since this is the only one I've smoked, I can't comment on the consistency. But, based on this one experience, I would definitely try this one again. Thoroughly enjoyed this smoke!

Great cigar! I thought I'd give them a try and I'm glad I did. Nice smooth flavor. i prefer the earthy toned flavors and find this one is just right. I will definitely buy more of these.

3rd order of these
Good smoke. However, they do not burn well when you have one in your mouth and fall in the river while fishing...... These are good smokes, flavorfull, and savory. Go well with 4 fingers of a good adult beverage while cooking on the grill. Will purchase again.

Excellent small torpedo

stick in every one!
Revision to previous post. I am now smoking the last of the 5 pack that I bought and every one of them has had a stick to pull out. Do not buy! There are many cigars that are in the same price range that are better quality and construction. 2nds are better quality smokes.

A top shelf smoke.
One of my new favorites. I tried this after reading a review and was very pleased.

The Genesis of something great
This was an outstanding cigar. Started off very mild, but after about an inch she started to develop deep and well developed earthy notes with an almost raw maple finish. If your looking to try a fuller-bodied cigar that won't leave you on your butt, this is undoubtedly a good place to start.

Strong, enjoyable, relaxing
I'm new to cigars (third month, 4-5 a week), and this was the "fullest" one I've tried, per the meter on this site. I quite enjoyed it and look forward to more of them.

TOP SHELF STICK...
Tried this one out of curiosity. Have to say, that I gave a few away. I got these for a fishing trip. Ended up with 5. Really enjoyed 3 of the five, and saved two for a rainy day, going back to my old stand by. After a year, it's time for the fishing trip again. Could not bring myself to smoke either one of the last two. Guess what. Ordered another bundle today. Yippee, I get to smoke one tomorrow after I get off of work cause I got another bundle coming. These are great smokes. my brother by another mother, smokes a full flavor cigar. I particularly do not care that much for his, however, he tells me that this stick is as good as his as for the full flavor. I think it has better flavor. His usual brand is obsidian black. I think this is a PRIMO SMOKE.

Favorite one
I will definitely be buying some more of these in the next week or so! Slow burn, great taste, not harsh, but it comes with a decent punch!

This cigar exceeds it's description
Like some other reviewers, I am skeptical of the descriptions given many cigars but am willing to try a new product. CI does a great job putting cigars into samplers or special deals so that we can try them without losing a lot of cash on something that just doesn't match up. Genesis the Project is one cigar that fully exceeds it's write-up. Read it, believe it, then try them out. I got my first ones in the Progressive Jackpot sampler and they have been a constant item in my inventory. I stock up on them when a great promo is offered, so I get great cigars at great prices. Buy a bunch and let them age..a great cigar that just keeps getting better.

Lobster on a pizza budget
Awesome for the price. If you are looking for quality on a pizza budget, this is it. When they go on special, they are even cheap enough for me to hand out to my moocher friends.

Not good
I tried this on a special deal. All but one were un-smokable . The tight construction didn't allow for development of what otherwise might be a good smoke. As it was, the harshness derived from the tight draw made it terrible. Sorry, Ramon, but quality control is absent here.

Fantastic cigar
What more can I say that hasn't already been said in the description or in other reviews? This is one fantastic cigar which I can truthfully say is one of my favorite three cigars and is the one I smoke when I want the very best in flavor, construction, smoothness..just one fantastic cigar, especially when I can stock up because of another great CI special. Ramon Bueso is a genius in crafting this cigar along with Odyssey.

Best cigar period!
I've been through five boxes of Ramon Bueso's cigars and The Project is the best tasting cigar I've had in over 40 years of smoking! I currently have a box of toros aging at 68% since April and hope to enjoy one on my next birthday in Dec. 2016. Don't pass up the Habano or the Odyssey since they are great tasting as well! These actually are the oiliest sticks I've ever seen!

Mmmmm.
Creamy, oily smoke that has a predominately sweet finish with a hint of spiciness. This was a very easy cigar to enjoy. Burned impeccably. I need more of these!
5 out of 5
Impressed!
Never tried this cigar before but since Ramon Bueso used to work with Padron. I had a hunch this cigar was worth a try. I was very impressed with the cigar's construction and I would have to say it was a tasty cigar as well. Would I purchase these cigars again---Yes,Yes,Yes!!
5 out of 5
Delicious
Mine was the Muy Bueso Genesis Habano that I received in a sampler. Absolutely delicious. Enjoyed every minute of it! I would definitely buy a box of these.

A Great Find.
I tried the Ramon Bueso "Genesis The Project" on impulse and it has turned into one of my all time favorite smokes. Well constructed, even burning, notes of coffee and cocoa...a very supple stick!

Needs to rest a month, otherwise awesome quality & value! Reminds me of Padron.

best cigar to date.
This amazing stick is a must try. Great smell, intoxicating. Flavors of coffee, dark chocolate and some milk chocolate. Pretty much those three throughout stick. This has become my go to cigar. Great flavor and no head buzz. If you like these flavors I Def recommend and I will Def keep buying.

Yawn
Great looking cigar, oily and firm with nice aroma. Low end of medium strength and a good choice for morning coffee. Other than that it's pretty one dimensional. There are better cigars for the same price.

One of my best go to cigars. Just perfect and priced just right.

Best cigar for the price on the market. R. Bueso's Genesis The Project
A well made cigar with tasty long filler Nicaraguan tobacco and a Nicaraguan dark almost oily maduro wrapper, comparable to many name brand cigars that sell for twice the price of the Project.

Great cigars at a great price - highly suggest. I tried the sampler and moved up to the box, can't beat the price

Oily company.
The dark oily wrapper is the first attractive indication of things to come, and this oddly named beauty doesn't disappoint. Over the past couple years this cigar has become my default, house cigar. When I want an enjoyable evening smoke, this never disappoints; its a gem.

Smooth as Silk
Love smoking this cigar especially with Johnny Walker Platinum and the draw is easy and smooth.

Genesis The Project Muy Bueso Review
The very first time I tried one of these cigars, it instantly became my new favorite. Every time I stopped in for a smoke, I enjoyed one there- and went home with a few more. The first time I ordered a box online, I was a bit put off by the inconsistency of the "draw", which is the ONE thing that will turn me off in a hurry. I would estimate that first box to be one in five with a bad draw, which is borderline unacceptable. Flash forward to now- I just started this box, so I can only speak for the first eight cigars out of the new box and it is not very encouraging. It has flip-flopped in a bad way. It is now more like one in four has a GOOD draw. If this trend plays out this way to the end of the box, it will probably be the last time I order these cigars. And that's a shame, considering how good they were out of the gate.

Great! I have tried others, but this one is one that I enjoy the most. Great flavor and burn.

A real find
You probably will not find this listed in many magazines or it might not be the latest and greatest trendy cigar. However, if you are looking for a good clean smoke that is medium to full with leathery and coffee tones, very little spiciness and a smooth burn with good ash, this is the smoke for you. One wiff of this beauty before you light it and you’ll know.

The Perfect Breakfast Stick
This cigar last just the right amount of time and tastes just right with coffee and the paper in the morning. Highly recommend it for that purpose.

Awesome Cigar
This cigar is medium-full, and is a smooth, flavorful, and elegant smoke. The draw and construction is just right, they look great, the smoke is pleasingly voluminous, and the ash clings nicely to the cigar. I've had several boxes of these, and they are very consistent in every way. A very pleasurable smoke, at a pleasing price.

Be patient
Extremely well made stick but "Do not" even think about firing one up until you've rested them in your humidor for at least a month. These cigars are too green and wet to really enjoy what Ramon has intended for you. Trust me, you will be greatly rewarded if you let them rest. Nice earthy, cocoa and cream flavors with a low side of medium strength makes this a really enjoyable breakfast or after dinner smoke.

genesis- the project
This is my third order of this cigar. Each one is as good as the one before it. Very uniform. I have shared many on golf league nights, and everyone loves them. A few have even ordered them. Won't be my last.

man seeks strong cigar with easy draw
and finds just what he's looking for, in the genesis torpedo. these cigars were fantastically full bodied, a bit oily, with an easy draw and produced a ton of smoke - which is in my wheelhouse! if you like the same, highly recommend the ramon bueso genesis line; same characteristics across the sizes. A +, take the rest of the day off....

I tried these when you first rolled them out a few years ago and bought into the story and tried a box. A great daily smoke, nice construction and draw. I'll always keep them in my rotation.

Full Flavor, even burn, complex profile
An outstanding cigar with a full rich flavor. Well constructed and burns evenly with very little effort. My only complaint is that all cigars these days, they are shipped a bit "green" and I would suggest removing the cello and letting them sit in the box for a week or so before moving them to your humidor. Then wait at least three weeks or so for them to fully develop their amazing flavor profile.

Give it a try
Good stick, burned well and was easy to draw. Well balanced and great body, will definitely purchase again.

Don't take a chance on these...
These things suck! Don't buy em, don't bid on em, just walk away! Leave em all for me and please don't drive the price up! To tell the truth, I'm into my 3rd box and just ordered another. I'd rather light one of these than any Montecristo or Fuente I've ever had in 45+ years of cigars. I attribute part of their incredible taste to that wonderfully sweet cedar box that Bueso packs them in. I take the empties and age other cigars in them to try to bring them up to the Genesis level.
