#Nowsmoking: Rafael Gonzalez Churchill
#nowsmoking @famoussmokeshop: The Rafael Gonzalez Churchill offers a long, smooth, and mellow smoke with dominant notes of cedar, nuts and a pinch of sweet spice.
Factory: General Cigar, Honduras
Size: 7″ x 52
Wrapper: U.S. Connecticut Shade
Binder: U.S. Connecticut Broadleaf
Filler: Honduras, Dominican Republic, Nicaragua
Dominant Flavors: Cashew nuts, cedar, sweet spice
Where it’s at: A cashew nut cold draw precedes a creamy, toasty, and nutty start. The smoke is very mellow upfront, but this lengthy cigar takes awhile to hit the sweet spot. Once there, the dense, creamy smoke is mostly toasty with a nutty-cedary layer and a pinch of sweet spice. More piquant flavors are revealed in the last act, and the woodiness is more defined. Despite its size, this is a terrific starter cigar. Outdoor conditions may affect burn time, but my Churchill smoked indoors for 2½ hours.
