26 September 2011 These La Perla Classics came in a special with Punch Pita's. I was after the Punch as I have smoked them for many years. Had never had the Perla Classic before. The La Perla Classic is a nice cigar though. I am hot and cold on Indonesian and Sumatran wrappers, usually not overly crazy about them. This cigar, tho, is a nice, spicey, earthy, and medium body smoke. The Torpedo burned perfectly with a tight ash and has a wonderfully spicy finish. Truly an enjoyable cigar. Good price--will be adding these to my humidor.
One of my 3 or 4 absolute favorite cigars. If you like a medium bodied cigar these (La Perla Habana Classics) are very nice indeed. Smooth as silk with a nice earthy flavor. And with this cigar there is no waiting for the flavor to mellow out. It is smooth and flavorful from start to finish.
These cigars (La Perla Habana Classic) are so good I want to unpack one of my old roach clips from my younger days. I just want to make them last!
I really liked this cigar! It has the perfect draw and lots and lots of smoke. A true med bodied stick and it burns so nice. I'm kinda shocked that I'm the first to comment on how good this gem of a cigar is. enjoy.
I recently purchased some boxes from CI, among them was the LPH Classic Belicoso. I thought $39.99 for a box of 20 was a pretty fair price for a brand that's talked about a lot recently and has got several positive reviews, so I decided I'll grab me a box. This belicoso is a chunky guy, measuring 6.2" by a 52 ring gauge, and feels firm and stuffed. No soft spots, nothing. The wrapper is an Ecuadorian dark brown but-not-so-maduro wrapper. Prelit aroma was a little bit peppery. One thing I noticed about the construction was the cap. There's something wrong about the cap which I just can't figure it out. I've had a couple caps almost go off while removing the cellophane, and a couple more with a small wrapper crack, but nothing major. It's the part you clip off anyway. The draw was great. I hate very loose drawing cigars, makes me feel like I'm smoking a water pipe (shisha, hubble bubble, Argila whatever you call it)and I just hate that unopposed draw. But tonight's cigar had the exact bit of resistance I like on my cigar. A promising start. The first puffs were tasty right away. Pepper was so prominent it gave me a feeling of putting black pepper powder on my tongue. It actually got annoying sometimes. But as the cigar burned itself down, the pepperness started to balance out and give way to more smooth flavors. I'm not very big on describing flavors; I don't really know the difference between earth, wood and leather. But I know when I'm liking what I am smoking and this was certainly a smoke I was enjoying. The smoke was abundant, the burn was razor sharp perfect; didn't need to touch it all the way to the nub, not a single time. The ash held out for almost half the length of the stick. In the photo below you can see it holding out to one fourth of the stick's length, but it continued holding up for even more till I was too bored of having to take care while handling it so I just ashed it. Verdict: very good cigar. I can easily give it a 6 or a 7 out of 10. Medium to full bodied, it gave me a slight pleasant buzz when I was done, as well as burned hot finger tips. I am certainly looking forward to try other blends from LPH. At these amazing CI prices I think this will be very soon.
