Rafael González was created in the 1930’s.
It was in this brand that the 61/2 inch (165mm) by 42 gauge cigar, which has the factory name of Cervantes, was first called a Lonsdale after Lord Lonsdale, the famous English sporting Earl and cigar aficionado of that period. Now many other brands use the name too.
Rafael González cigars contain a light tasting blend of filler and binder leaves from the Vuelta Abajo zone.
All sizes are made by the Tripa Larga, Totalmente a Mano – long filler, totally hand made technique.
RING GAUGE: 40
LENGTH: 4 inches
A recent addition to the array of small format, light flavoured Havanas. Well made with a distinctive aperitif taste.
