One of the best of all the different brands I have tried.
This is my everyday cigar. I have purchased many different brands from CI and this cigar is easy, and burns great.

Fair Skies and smokes!
This review is on the robusto version. As another wrote, this cigar ROTT tends to be a bit more mellow than a medium strength rating IMHO. Construction was a bit weaker than other Don Rafael's I've had, but not bad. On a good note, the burn was fairly even all the way through, without need to relight. Flavor increased the longer the smoke went on. Smoke volume was good and the draw was right where it should be. Aroma is what I would describe as being "neutral" - not offensive or extra pleasing. Of interesting note, the box for these is a nice step up in construction from previous Don Rafaels - so they will arrive nice and secure. I will be saving these for days I want a slightly smoother smoke.

Don Rafael Robusto
Hey C.I. This is the new addition to the D.R. lineup. Was pleasantly surprised with this cigar,,,have had the D.R. before but never this one it is new in their lineup. This is a wonderful addition to their lineup,,great construction,,,,burns evenly all the way to the nub,,,,and has a medium to full flavor. The price is also at a level that I can smoke one most every day without breaking the bank. This cigar will only improve with time in the humidor,,,tobacco a bit young,,,,needs some time,,,but can be smoked now. Will order again,,,and put some away for long term aging. Ted M. Ohio

Good smoke for the value
Cigar has a great flavor and burns well. A few of the cigars wrappers peeled back while smoking. Overall a good cigar for the price.

Think twice before buying these.
This cigar was very salty, lacked in any taste. I'm going to set them aside and let them age for awhile. I was not happy nor impressed with this cigar. The box smells of glue and another very unpleasant smell.

Don Rafael Nicaragua
Not a bad everyday smoke but after five or so of them I prefer the Don Rafael Maduro much better for an everyday stick.

Less than impressed with ordering process
Have been ordering from CI for years. They never have the correct address information and it's always a conflict. Love the cigars, however, their phone ordering process stinks.

not one of my favorites
I had better, but not bad, a little too peppery for my palate.

You really can't beat this cigar for the price. I've ordered boxes to never be disappointed with a bad burn, loose pack or too mild. By the end of this cigar, you have just enough of a good buzz going to be done and ready for bed. Luckily, this cigar lets you sleep.

Disappointed
Expected more from Don Raphael, even at this price point. I've experienced some so loosely packed, they were hard to keep lit; uneven burning; and lack of consistency.

Solid Donny Nic does the Trick
This is a smooth class act cigar. Nice labels, good burn/ash. Packed just right with lots of flavor to boot. Yes the wrappers can be a bit delicate and sometimes look a little discolored, but...This new Don is a wallet and pallete pleaser.

Don Rafael
It is everything you expect from a Don Rafael. The Nicaragua line is fantastic. As the smoke goes. the taste is kind of nutty and a little coffee.

Nice cigars that smoke like Premiums
I promise you your friends will not know the difference between this cigar and a Macanudo. This is great cigar and your friends will enjoy it and think they are smoking a high dollar stogie.

Another Good Don
very good if you're an everyday smoker on a budget, or looking for a better yard gar. For the dough, very good.
