Rafael Gonzalez Cigar Taste Test

Rafael Gonzalez Petit Coronas
Reviewed by Bill Fode (July 2000)

Ragael Gonzalez Petit Corona CigarsI was provided three Rafael Gonzalez Petit Coronas. They all three arrived in great condition. Two of the three were a slight darker brown then the other one. They all had varying sized sun spots on them. I let them sit in the 'dor for about a week and a half before smoking them.

I smoked them three nights consecutively. One I smoked with a nice glass of port, one with a pint of stout, and one with a glass of HC7. The port complimented the cigar the best.

All three cigars were very well constructed. There were no soft or hard spots. The pre-light draw was excellent on all three of them. The burn was also excellent.

I have never smoked one of these cigars before so I have nothing to compare it to. To me, they seemed young and that more time was needed in the dor to age some. I was able to detect the earthy flavor of the traditional Cuban cigar, and also picked up hints of honey. The cigars were one dimensional with a dry and very short finish and mild in body.

I wish I had some to age a while and then make a comparison.

Thanks again for this opportunity and I hope I was able to provide a decent review for your readers.
