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..."

Pretty good value for money. Smoked fairly fast and slightly uneven burn but nothing to complain about. Nice taste and aroma, very little smoke. All in all worth £10 and Id happily smoke another

Had this with a white coffee, mildly sweetened. Good construction that burned pretty much evenly. Started off peppery and leathery in the first quarter, giving way to a woody/hay flavour but still maintaining a slight peppery undertone. Became a much more mild smoke towards the halfway mark, very smooth and creamy. Pepper kicked back in during the 3rd quarter but still incredibly smooth with woody flavours still coming through. Final quarter, past the band, smooth leather, wood, and pepper all coming together in a fantastic crescendo. Recommended to any smoker of light cigars who want to explore a good Cuban.

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.
