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..."

I was expecting good things from this little cuban cigar but things didn't start well as the wrapper started to fall apart as soon as I'd cut the cap, in fact the whole construction appeared a little Iffy, anyway on to the smoke, it burnt unevenly with little smoke and not much taste. Maybe I was just a bit unlucky but wouldn't rush to buy again.

Lovely day smoke. Plentiful almost sweet smoke which left a lovely taste. Will definitely buy more. Did not pat long but what did I expect? Very enjoyable 25 minutes. Again first class delivery from c Gars

These make a lovely morning or early afternoon smoke, I have a few boxes dated Nov 01 and they have aged quite well the wrapper still as an oily sheen. it is a mild smoke this maybe in some part down to the age of these . Woody with mild cinnamon spice, very agreeable little stick

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.
