Rafael Gonzalez was created in the 1930's. 

It was in this brand that the 6 1/2 inch by 42 gauge cigar, which has the factory name of Cervantes, was the first called a Lonsdale after Lord Lonsdale, the famous English sporting Earl and cigar aficionado of that period. Now many other brands use the name as well. 

On its lid label each box carries a curious inscription written in English to the effect that the cigars should be smoked within one month of the date of shipment from Havana or otherwise they should be carefully matured for about one year. 

Rafael Gonzalez cigars contain a light tasting blend of filler and binder leaves from the Vuelta Abajo zone. 

Tasting Notes

89 / 100

"...Despite the small size, this little tawny-coloured cigar has a voluminous draw that imparts a smoke loaded with oak and maple notes accentuated by black pepper and earthy carob..."

Really disappointing. Dry, flaky leaves had to be re-lighted continually. Insubstantial.

As a beginner I really enjoyed this Cigar. It was very light and pleasant to smoke. No big bold overpowering smoke or flavours, everything was just nice and gentle. I’d say this was perfect for people like myself who are just starting out, and I’ll definitely purchase another. Lovey stuff.

Received in the June mixed subscription. The tasting notes supplied are a useful benefit. Enjoyed the 30 min smoke. Have added the box to my wish list for a future purchase.

Great price-quality mild cuban cigars. Many of our beginners started with this cigar at Turmeaus Liverpool. David - C.Gars Ltd Cigar Ambassador.

My example had a small tear in the wrapper but other than that the construction seemed fine. How wrong I was. The burn was constantly uneven.....this later turned into canoeing. Later on strange cavities appeared in several places. The wrapper also needed to be re-glued. CGars gave me a full refund. Turning now to the smoking experience this wasnt much better. I found it to be extremely light bodied.....so much so it was hard to tell that it was Cuban. Sometimes it was a little harsh and then there would be very brief moments of peppery potential. All in all a total disappointment.....especially after reading all of the good reviews on this website. Considering that for not much more cash you can be smoking a H. Upmann I cannot recommend this cigar at all. H Upmann seem to do light bodied cigar with flavour better than most. 2.8 stars.
