Don Rafael Connecticut

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!"

Okay, so maybe my actual favorite cigars are made by Rocky Patel and Ave Maria, but they cost a bundle! Don Rafael has the perfect mix of price and quality. It outperforms it's sector of the market by a long shot.

Generally these Don Rafael cigars
Generally these Don Rafael cigars are very good. But on several occasions, before I complete smoking the box full, which are ALWAYS kept in a properly regulated humidor, some of them have cracked and have peeling outer wrappers. This is very disappointing as they are difficult and sometimes impossible, to smoke. I wonder if they are stored in a warehouse and kept way too long, and became aged and susceptive to cracking? This has happened on more than one occasion. I have considered going back to Thompson Cigars for the same cigars. Any explanation on this? Al Vaccaro

Golf cigar
Excellent golf course cigar. Nice mild smoke while playing a round. Can last for 7-8 holes.

nice change of pace.
I must say that I enjoy them very much. They light up evenly. Burn clean and are offered at a decent price. In these troubled times .I can buy a good smoke. I liked acid cigars but the prices are getting outrageous. Being retired now I look for better deals.And C.I. has them.

Ever since I first ordered these cigars which is close to 20 years now, I can honestly say that each smoke was a great smoke. Good consistent burn with hardly any re-lights, always a long solid ash and easy on the wallet. I highly recommend.

I really enjoyed the cigar. Everyone of them smoked really well with little effort to get a good pull. They also burn evenly. Smooth and mild, very pleasant aftertaste. I did not detect any bitterness when the cigar was burned down to 2”. Yes I would buy them again

You get what you pay for
Grabbed a box of these because of the low price point and have them aging in the humidor but decided to try one early. Construction is decent for the price The burn is uneven but this could be due to lack of aging Draw is good Flavor is pretty bland, nothing exciting. Bottom line its a cheap cigar that is ok for riding the zero turn, surf fishing or just something to smoke. In summary its exactly what i expected. A decent cigar at a decent price. Going to age them for several months to see if flavor improves

Good smoke
I usually spoke about three cigars to five a week on the afternoon sitting on my porch looking at the Blue Ridge Mountains over Lake Blue Ridge. I have a home in Mexico and frequently bring Cuban Montecristo number two’s home. Same shape similar taste big time savings in cost. Quality seems to be uniform box to box

Good, not great mild cigar.
I found the box I got to be inconsistent. Some had tight draw, others fine I enjoyed the taste, but they were prone to an uneven burn with a lot of attention and delights required.

A smooth smoke
A great cigar for the money. I have smoked Don Rafael for many years and have not been disappointed. This Gordo is a light and a very smooth smoke, burns well and can maintain a long white ash. You may find this cigar may burn a little faster than others.

Nice cigar. Good burn and flavor. The wrapper has partially peeled on several of the ones I received. Don't know if it condition or construction. It makes them seem a bit fragile.

My Favorite Cigar
The Don Rafael Connecticut is the cigar that I keep coming back to after I've tried other cigars. I've tried lower cost cigars for smoking on the golf course on windy days, and higher cost and high rated cigars for "sit down" smoking. The Don Rafael is the cigar that I consistently find to be the best smoking, best tasting, and most enjoyable cigar that I have smoked. For the cost, I think it is the best cigar buy that I can make. Try one or two. You'll enjoy it.

Up and down
1st off, they have all been good burners so far. I've probably had 10 or so out of the box. They do lack a flavor profile for the most part. But I have had some that are better than others. I bought these sticks to be a "garage time" smoke and they are just that. You won't mind losing one or two to the ashtray at this price point. Overall not bad, not great.

Decent everyday smoke
I think the Don Rafael Conn. Shade is a decent everyday smoke. They are very light and smooth. I prefer the Don Rafael Gold but they were out of stock. These will do for now.

Had much better from Don Rafael
I don't like to post bad reviews, but thus far I have found these too tightly rolled with a grotesque uneven burn and poor taste. The one I smoked yesterday was much better burn so maybe letting them sit in the humidor for a few months helps a little bit, but the taste was still very bland.

not the same
I have been Down Rafael 77 for a long time and I’ve always been satisfied with the cigar. However last batch I purchased does not seem to be the same rap Seems different in the first three cigars separated after smoking about 1/3 of the cigar. I’m waiting to see if this issue continuesMy cigars are in the humidor at 65 to 70°.

inexpensive, but quality taste
I bought two 20-pack samplers of Don Rafael smokes earlier this year. These Connecticut churchills are a good, inexpensive stick, while their Gold churchill is my favorite of the bunch. These Connecticuts offer a loose construction, and fast draw complimented by the consistent, mild taste. The only cigar in the sampler I didn't like was the black label Nicaragua by Don Rafael, and I'll write a separate review of it.

Great Cigar at a Great Price
I tried one of these a few months ago, totally by happenstance. I have kept a box of them in my humidor ever since. The construction is excellent, with very few uneven burns (1-2 cigars out of 20). The few uneven burns I did have were easily fixable, with a very quick and short touch up. They are easy to light, and stays lit throughout the entire smoke. The draw is easy and even. The flavor is nice and smooth from start to finish. I would highly recommend these cigars to anyone!
3 out of 5
Don’t Taste The Same
I have purchased boxes of these and they seem to me getting worse not better. Lately they are soft and chewy, lots of twigs and very harsh about halfway thru the stick. Maybe it was a bad batch, will try another box and then decide. Always have been very enjoyable except for the last few boxes.

Purchased the Don Rafael as a wedding favor participants at a family wedding. It has become a tradition at graduations and family weddings to have group photo with lit cigars. Many of the participants this time had never smoked a cigar before so the Rafael was the perfect mild smoke for new inductees into the family traditions. The cigars were a big hit for all those who participated and cigar was enjoyable for the occasion.
