Spotlight Brand: House Blend American Label

November 4, 2012 |

Our flagship line returns triumphantly with inspiration from Uncle Sam. American Label was the FIRST cigar created using 100% American tobaccos! As the team pondered an extension to our highly successful House Blends, we went through a handful of countries where we could get tobacco to build a brand. The problem was none of them made for very good blends. After working on this project over a couple of weeks, we ended up coming to a standstill. And then, quite suddenly, some good old fashioned American tobacco showed up on our radar.

So what's in an American Label? Well, let's first start out by saying this was the first blend made up of purely 100% American tobaccos rolled in Nicaragua. It starts with Connecticut Broadleaf and Connecticut Habano fillers nestled underneath a Wisconsin binder (no, that wasn't a typo…Wisconsin). This unique blend is then wrapped up with a Connecticut Shade wrapper, and is packed with flavor. Mellow to medium in body, this blend hits you with cedar and cream flavors up front, and finishes with notes of freedom and liberty.

Q & A: Churchill vs. Robusto

With all these size options available, what’s the difference between a churchill and a robusto?

11/01/12 | by HF from Lansing, MI

​​Great question. So many people touch on the different ring gauges and how they affect a smoke but folks don’t really touch on the length of the cigar. The length of a cigar has a similar effect on the taste much like the ring gauge. The longer the cigar, the cooler the smoke. The cooler the smoke, the milder the flavors are – at first. As the cigar burns down, the smoke will start to get hotter and hotter creating a much stronger flavor. So when you take that into account with the ring gauge, you’ll be able to find more complexities in your cigars. Usually, the fatter, longer cigars will be the most complex.

Review: Ramon Bueso Genesis The Project

Sean G Only the Beginning
Toro (6.0”x50): Simply stunning. We barely hand out 95 ratings. In fact, this is one of the only blends we've ranked so high but we're proud to do so because we've never tasted something so consistent, flavorful, yet mellow. All of our experts agree here too. This is a cigar you can enjoy one right after the other. It doesn't destroy your palate but it constantly keeps your interest. Mellow, medium, and full-bodied enthusiasts will find something special about this cigar so it really is the epitome of "the perfect blend."

Robusto (5.0”x50):
Same great flavor profile as the toro size but in can be enjoyed in under an hour. The only reason why this size lost a few points is due to the fact that it doesn't last as long or become as complex as the toro.

Muy Bueso (6.5”x60):
Not usually a big fan of the mammoth cigars but the boldness and richness of this blend is just captivating. While not an everyday cigar, this size is perfect if you’ve got plenty of time to kick back and relax.

Torpedo (6.0”x52):
Hey, we have to nitpick somewhere. Don’t get us wrong, this is still an excellent size but we found that some of the cigar’s boldness is a little sharp on the finish when you first light it up. Otherwise, this size is still worthy of the Genesis name and is still nothing to scoff at.
