Happy Birthday Sebastien Decoppet. The owner of the prestigious Rhein 1905 cigar shop in Geneva and his own cigar brand, Cavalier Geneve. Those cigars stand out from the competition by the golden square on the cigar leaf itself.
Decoppet traveled all over Latin America and his passion for tobacco only grew. When he met the Plasencia family, they took him under their wings. They saw his passion, and after indulging in their knowledge, Decoppet decided to create his own brand, Cavalier Geneve. And he combined the quality of the cigars, which are made in Honduras in one of the Plasencia factories with an aesthetic look. A gold foil square on the wrapper leaf itself. And the gold is smokable.
The first cigar Decoppet blended was released as the Cavalier White Series. The cigar has a Habano wrapper over a Honduran binder. The filler comes from the Dominican Republic, Paraguay, and Nicaragua. The white series has grown to a seven vitola line. From the 3½x58 Medio to the 4½x52 Elegantes. And then the 5½x56 Diplomate, 6×52 Toro, and the 7×48 Churchill. The last sizes are the 7×50/58 Salomones and the 7×38 Lancero.
The second line is the Cavalier Black Series. This series is exclusively for sale in the United States. With one exception, the cigars are also for sale at the Rhein 1905 shop in Geneva. That shop is owned by Decoppet and the Cavalier flagship store. The cigars come from the same factory as the white series. The wrapper is Mexican San Andres, the binder is Brazilian Arapiraca. The filler comes from Nicaragua and Honduras. There are three sizes available, a 7½x52 Double Corona, a 6×54 Toro, and a 5×50 Robusto.
Then there is the Cavalier Geneva Black II. Also made at the San Judas Tudeo factory in Honduras. The binder and filler are Nicaraguan. The wrapper is Mexican San Andres. It comes in five sizes, a 5×50 Robusto, 5×54 Robusto Extra, 6×54 Toro, 6×60 Toro Gordo, and a 6×52 Torpedo.
