Ring Gauge: 42
Strength: Light 
Packaging: Box of 25 Cigars 

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

Mild in aroma and flavour, best after a light summer lunch.The construction is very good and the draw is excellent, all a good representation of what a mild cuban should be.

What I like about this cigar is they can be smoked anywhere and anytime and by anyone. They don’’t give me any cigar sickness and my palate is left with a smooth buttery finish. I bought a Henri Wintermans Corona Sumatra tubed cigar for comparison and it was bitter and I did not finish it. It is worth spending a few pounds more for quality and you cannot go wrong with the Rafael Gonzalez Petit Coronas. 😀👌

I ordered 3 Rafael Gonzalez Petit Coronas to try after seeing reviews on YouTube and cgars..com about them being mild and ideal for beginners like me. All 3 were constructed really well and burnt easily. Very smooth smoke and no bitterness on my palate. They were a pleasure to smoke and will reorder them.

Reviewed by Bill Fode (July 2000) I 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.
