Flor de Gonzalez 90 Miles Toro "ROTT" Review
This is a review I did for a review blog site for my friend Ben.
This was an interesting smoke. A little different from your "typical" Nicaraguan cigar and something different from what I usally like to smoke.

A little history:
So near and yet do far….
As most of you know, the little island South of Miami also known as Cuban is only 90 miles from Florida. Flor De Gonzalez created the 90 Miles cigar as a tribute to the United States for allowing us the opportunity and privilege to live in a...

Today I was in the mood for something different. I looked through the humidor and grabbed a smoke that isn't as well known as some of the bigger Cuban names. I came across a Rafael Gonzalez Corona Extra. This isn't one of my favorites, but I haven't had one in a while so I decided...
A small gathering, but it is a nice place to hang out and have a smoke. I think my wife and kids were out on in the Strip district shopping...

I got this a few months ago courtesy of audio1der, my Canuck connection (thanks again!) and decided to light 'er up tonight. The size was a corona gorda, but I don't know what the name is.
Beautiful little cigar with a gentle box press giving it a rectangular shape. The wrapper is smooth and...
Today I was down in the Canton area and stopped into OSI Tobacco. The owner and I were talking about my preferences and he told me to try the Don Gonzalez Maduro Robusto.
This is a brand that I'm unfamiliar with and was wondering if anybody else has feedback on this stick.
I'm going to let it...
Has anyone else smoked a Don Gonzalez? What are you thoughts?
I've smoked a few Don Gonzalez and have to say I really enjoy them!
The Corojo wrapper is medium body and very tasty the Maduro is pleasant with the little sweetness.
All have burned smooth and even.
Has anyone seen the Rafael Gonzalez Lonsdale ad in European Cigar Cult Journal(Autumn edition 2007)on page 27 ? I just though it was interesting to see the recommendation from RG that "In order that the connoisseur may fully appreciate the perfect fragrance they should be smoked either within...
After finishing the '88 RyJ PoW (see review), I need something with a bit more "oomph" to smoke. I decided to smoke an '88 Rafael Gonzalez Lonsdale, my second cigar of the night from 1988 as a tribute to this wonderful year. Why you ask? I have no clue, but it seemed like the right thing to...
I got a box of Rafael Gonzalez M. Lonsdales with a ES00 box code. (06/99)
I just got them on Monday so they may need more rest. My question is, are they usually a very mild cigar? These were much more mild than I was expecting. Is it possible that they will pick up a bit with more rest?
Size: 6 1/2 x 42
Here was a smoke that was kinda a surprise for me. I fired it up while sitting under my porch and watching a perfect summer rain.
This cigar had good construction. The draw was perfect and the burn only streaked one...
Bought these on a whim because they are made in Miami and have pretty good ratings (mid to high 80s) from cigar snob magazines. I am smoking this one fresh outta the box.
Size: "extra corona", looks about like a toro
Retail price: $70-$80/box of 25
