The latest cigar in the Rafael Gonzales range released January 2013, slightly floral note,medium strength and a medium sweet flavour. A nice 20-25 minute smoke.
Rafael Gonzalez was created in the 1930’s.
It was in this brand that the 61/2 inch (165mm) by 42 gauge cigar, which has the factory name of Cervantes, was first called a Lonsdale after Lord Lonsdale, the famous English sporting Earl and cigar aficionado of that period. Now many other brands now 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.
