Don Rafael Connecticut

Description

Don Rafael cigars are premium mellow and smooth, 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, mellow to medium-bodied blend 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... 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!"

For a cheaper priced cigar I was completely surprised at how good these were. I rarely review but listen up: Amazing smoke and great flavor. Even burn the whole time and the burn time was fairly long. Bought two more times to keep these in stock. Don't let the price fool you. Buy these!

I've ordered both the robusto and the toro in the past. It's a really good cigar. Almost always burns evenly and draws well. Tastes good, too. Sometimes you can catch them on sale...Then, it's an even better deal! I plan to order them again.
