Dissapointing
After so many months of not being in stock I was so happy to place my order for the Don Rafael Gold Robusto as you had it in stock. I was a best man at my friends wedding and I bought these specifically for that event. Had I known the quality was sub-par I would have ordered my usual wrapper. This order was a waste of my money!

Nice tasty smoke
I've been enjoying Don Rafael Gold for a few years now. It is a very pleasant smoke. I don't usually purchase the Churchill size but CI was out of all the other sizes. Happy to purchase any size of these fine smokes.

Fine cigar- great price
I usually always buy the the Don Rafael Toros but you were sold out so got the Churchill's. Same great cigar that always burns true. For the money these cigars can't be beat.

Great Value in a Mild Cigar
The Don Rafael cigars are an excellent value for the price. Construction is good and the wrapper did not come off even when carried along while pushing the lawn mower. The cigars burn smoothly and there was no noticeable generation of bitter resin late in the smoke. While the outer wrapper on the gold label is sweetened, this is not excessive: on a par with the "Host" cigar series.

One of the best from one of the best.
The Don Rafael Gold was part of a special offered by Cigars Internation for a sampler pack. Not only was the sampler pack a great deal, it introduced me to new cigars, including the Don Rafael Gold. This is now one of my "Go to" cigars after dinner and when introducing friends to the pleasure of cigar smoking.

Don Rafael Don't
Would rate the burn property a 6 or 7(at best). Many of the box required relighting several times. And, it becomes fairly bitter/strong at about the 2/3 point. I will not order these again.

Tasty tip
If you don't like sweetened tips, then you probably won't like this stick. I do so I thoroughly enjoy the cigar. Would like to see it in a torpedo shape, though.

Enjoyable Smoke
Have been ordering the Gold Robusto since they came out. The Robusto was backordered so I ordered the Toro. Seems to be a better cigar - but the tip is not as sweet as the Robusto. Will continue to order the Toro's.

Enjoyable
I'm not one who can taste a lot of the suttle tastes others can, but this stick has a nice sweetness, good burn and I enjoy smoking it

Sweet & Mild
Perfect for your daily smoke. Has a sweet taste (nice w/that first cup of coffee)from the tip and an over all mild smoke. Every cigar so far has given an even burn and the price for product is great. For whatever reason the tip to the Churchhills separated. However the Toro size has yet to give any problems. My next order will be another box of Toro's.

Fine knock around cigar. Sweetened tip may turn some off, but in this case it lends itself to the mellow easy nature of the cigar.

DON RAFAEL GOLD CHURCHILL AND SHORTER SIZE
LIKE THE CONSISTENCY OF THIS BRAND/STYLE. BURNS EVENLY WITH LONG ASH (VERY FEW EXCEPTIONS) AS I HAVE ORDERED AND SMOKED OVER 50 THUS FAR. WILL CONTINUE TO BUY AS LONG AS THIS EXPERIENCE CONTINUES.

Good
This is the second time I have purchased the Gold Double Corona. The first was excellent but this time there were a few issues with difficult draw and loose wrapper. However, I still think this is a good cigar.

Don Rafael Gold Toro
Great Mild cigar for the price. Take the," for the price" part off. It is just a great cigar that smokes even, slow and full of mild flavor, one of my favorites.

I DID NOT LIKE THEM BECAUSE THEY WERE TOO SWEET AT THE BEGINNING. I had to cut the tip off to avoid the sweetness. I will not buy them again.

Service and product
The service and delivery times have been great. Time from order to front door has never been longer than 4 days. The products that I have bought from lighters to cigars have always been top shelf. I have also turned other people on to your magazine and on line products. Thank you

Don Rafael - A Bit of Sweetness
The Don Rafael is a good daily "go to" cigar with consistent flavor and texture. It has just a bit of sweetness through out that makes it special. It has a slow burn and fits very well into that mild to medium smoke that you never get tired of. Hopefully no one will mess with the way this tasty cigar is made or the "sweet" price point it sells at.

Great smoke.
Smooth burning cigar, nice ash. I like the sweet taste on the tip and it continues through the entire smoke.
Customer Testimonials
Was reluctant to try these smokes due to flavored tips, but pleasantly surprised. Now they are regulars in my humidor. Great flavor for the value.
I let these rest in my humidor for a few months and finally got around to trying one tonight. The sweet cap is a nice touch. It burns nice and the draw is easy but not as easy as the Don Rafael Connecticut. My only complaint is they are lacking in flavor. The smoke itself doesn't have much flavor.
WOW... I've only smoked ONE of these gems... actually one of these GOLD Robustos. That sweet cap is tasty, the draw, easy as a Sunday afternoon and the price... well... even I can afford 'em. These can easily become my "one-a-day" favorite.
Name says it all, GOLD! Tried the traditional baseline smoke straight out of the box and it was 100% ready to smoke. Flavor, burn, taste all perfect. Humidor will tune these into medium-mild cigars that I'm sure will rival anything the "Big Boys" offer. Great deal, Highly recommended, and the slightly sweetened honey tip is icing on the cake!
Great smoke right out of the box. Mild, easy draw and even burn with a great ash. Will be even better after a rest in the humidor. These will be on my "favorites" list from now on !!
