Rafael Gonzales Petit Corona cigars – Single Cigar
Size 5 1/8 inches by 42 Ring Gauge
This is a very mild cigar, however very rich in flavors with an excellent construction. Produced in limited amounts, this cigar has all the more consistency in quality. It is a perfect small cigar for a morning break or a lazy afternoon.
Rafael Gonz?lez 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 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.
