Last year was a big one for Cavalier Genève after the company entered the U.S. market as part of a distribution agreement with Dallas-based Cigar Art. In addition, earlier this year the company purchased Tabak Rhein in Geneva, Switzerland, which became the brand’s flagship store.

Sporting a much bigger booth compared to last year, Cavalier Genève was also showing off new releases in each of its two major lines: Black Series and White Series. While there was a totally different blend added in the Black Series, the White Series addition consisted of just one new vitola.

Cavalier Genève Black Series II

The distinctive gold leaf on its cigar wrappers is back, this time on a new box-pressed line named Black Series II. The release was produced to pay tribute to Tabak Rhein, a Geneva, Switzerland-based retailer founded in 1905 that Cavalier Genève acquired earlier this year.

  • Wrapper: Mexican San Andrés Maduro
  • Binder: Nicaragua
  • Filler: Nicaragua
  • Cavalier Genève Black Series II Robusto (5 x 50) — $8.50 (Boxes of 20, $170)

  • Cavalier Genève Black Series II Toro (6 x 54) — $9 (Boxes of 20, $180)

I have been smoking cigars for over eight years. A documentary wedding photographer by trade, I spent seven years as a photojournalist for the Dallas Morning News and the Fort Worth Star Telegram. I started the cigar blog SmokingStogie in 2008 after realizing that there was a need for a cigar blog with better photographs and more in-depth information about each release. SmokingStogie quickly became one of the more influential cigar blogs on the internet, known for reviewing preproduction, prerelease, rare, extremely hard-to-find and expensive cigars. I am a co-founder of halfwheel and now serve as an editor for halfwheel.
