Rafael Gonzalez Coronas Extra - 25 cigars [5.6 x 46]
This is the biggest format of Gonzalez Marquez; that of the greatest gauge and the greatest strength. Larger than the Lonsdale, it is an after-dinner Habano, with a good draw and excellent combustion. One of the best Coronas Gordas on the market. A must try.

OMG! What A Surprise!!!
Man, did this cigar blow me out of the water! Wow, it came as a huge surprise when I put this very nonchalant and unassuming cigar in my mouth and took a draw...
For openers, the box from CT was marked '09 and it is a very chic looking box, not at all typical in any way. Once opened, looking at the cigars reminded me instantly of looking at a box of Padron 1926 Anniversario of the same size. The look of that same velvety-soft wrapper with its intense perfection and evenness.
The individual feel of each cigar is a treat from Heaven... Soft and perfect, with an underlying firmness and weight that just screams "smoke me, take me, yes, here and now!"
Lighting this cigar is an act of Nirvana, with nasturtiums falling from the sky with a backdrop of crystalline moonbeams. The smoke is DELICIOUS!!! And pure Habano-inspired!
This cigar will get discovered, I promise you. As it was for me, after reading a review of it by Denis at Cigar Inspector.
BUY YOURSELF AS MANY BOXES AS YOU CAN POSSIBLY AFFORD (I will probably later want to kill myself for that comment) AND DO IT AS SOON AS YOU CAN. LAY DOWN A BOX OR TWO FOR ANOTHER FIVE TO TEN YEARS, AND THEN REALLY BE READY FOR A TRULY OUT-OF-BODY EXPERIENCE!
