Cavalier Genève - A brand born out of friendship and passion
Determined to discover Central America, Sébastien Decoppet set out on an adventure in 2014, with a backpack and a cigar in his mouth. His first flight took him to Honduras. He unpacked his bags there and soon met the Plasencia family. Taken under the wing of the family, who saw him as a passionate young man, in a few short months he learned the main steps needed for the creation of a cigar. From tobacco cultivation and the selection of leaves to rolling, he underwent an intense apprenticeship in one of the best cigar factories in the world.
After 6 months immersed in the business, Sébastien decided to take the plunge and to produce his own cigars. Supported by Adin Perez, a member of the Plasencia family, Sébastien created his first line of cigars: the Cavalier Genève, from Danli, Honduras. The blend was based on 6 tobaccos from 5 countries: Honduras, Nicaragua, Brazil, the Dominican Republic and Paraguay.
The format was devised and realised in partnership with the late David Rojas. A local artist from Danli. Once back in Geneva, his passion in combination with the exceptional quality of his products ensured that he quickly became established. The quality of his cigars, of which there are three types today, allowed him to expand his international sales within only 6 months.More details...

The smallest in the range, sturdy, short and chubby, it fills the hand well. The draw is pleasant and delivers a beautiful plume of smoke. Full and voluptuous, offering a symphony of slightly spicy aromas of undergrowth, with a tinge of some rather pleasant bitter notes. A little cigar, but one full of personality and an ideal accompaniment to summer...More details...

The longest of the three, the Diplomate has a beautiful wrapper - golden, with no veins. This Brazilian wrapper looks great. It lights easily, and the strength of the first draws quickly fades, giving way to a gentle and lovely bouquet. Mingling notes of mushroom and wood complement each other, pleasing the palate. The finish rises in power and roundness.More details...
