Jamond Hackley founded Definition Cigars in 2o19, and since then, the company has released multiple different lines, including the 919 Series, Noir Cameroon, Conception, Pig and Walking Stick. For the 2023 PCA Convention & Trade Show, Hackley was showing off a new release that was made in collaboration with Luciano Meirelles, ceo and co-founder of Luciano Cigars.

This was the first PCA Convention & Trade Show for Definition Cigars, and I thought the company did well with the space they were exhibiting in. The booth was open with tables on either side and a couple of nice, well-lit glass display cases in the back to show off the various lines. There always seemed to be someone in the booth the few times I passed by, and Hackley confirmed that he had been in almost non-stop conversations with prospective clients every day of the show.

During our conversation, Hackley also told me that the company was going to add metallic paper bands on all of his cigars that are designed to look similar to the distinctive colored rope-looking bands Definition currently uses. According to Hackley, the current cigar bands have not only become too expensive, but they also take significantly longer to place on the cigars than paper bands do.

Definition Genesis Super Robusto

This is the first time that Definition has worked with Luciano Cigars, and the result is a cigar that the company says “provokes smokers to question the root of their identity, their beliefs, and connection to the beginning of what defines them and how they define what they encounter in life.” It is highlighted by four fillers from across Nicaragua, including a native Nicaraguan varietal called Chincagre that is grown in the Massatepe region.

  • Wrapper: Ecuador (Broadleaf Hybrid)
  • Binder: Mexico (San Andrés)
  • Filler: Nicaragua (Condega, Massatepe Chincagre, Ometepe & Pueblo Nuevo)
  • Definition Genesis Super Robusto (5 1/2 x 54) — $12.49 (Box of 20, $249.80)

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.
