Don Rafael cigars are premium mild and smooth smokes, built for Everyman’s everyday enjoyment at bargain basement prices.
Don Rafael cigars, rolled by Jose Dominguez in the same boutique cigar factory that makes Victor Sinclair, is a well-constructed, mild to medium-bodied smoke from the Dominican Republic. Don Rafael is comprised of a Dominican binder, all-Dominican long-filler leaves, and a Connecticut Shade wrapper grown in Ecuador.
SMOKE magazine says: "Four out of five panelists agree: this is a cigar for everyone. Its mildness and subtle tones of spice and wood, bequeathed to the palate by the Connecticut broadleaf wrapper, make the Don Rafael an excellent all-day smoke for the novice and an excellent morning smoke. This is a perfect accompaniment to a glass of dry champagne or a mimosa, after you’ve finished off a heaping plate of huevos rancheros!"
Bought this as an everyday smoke, I was pleasantly supprised with the even burn, pleasant taste, and ease of draw. Onlly downside for an everyday was out of the 12 I smoked so far, two were split, and one unwrapped asI smoked. around half-way, had to give that one up

Cigar flavor was pretty inconsistent. You really have to be doing nothing else while smoking this cigar. As soon as you set it down , it goes out. Wouldn't recommend this cigar
