My review could be copied and pasted from the person who made the last comment. I too thought I was going to receive some outstanding cigars, due to all the hype concerning the La Perla. There was not a single cigar in this sampler I liked, yet I couldn't just toss them. If I spend money on a cigar, rather than waste my money, I endure the smoke. For me, the major flavor in the La Perla is black pepper. I'm talking about spoon full with every draw, leaving your palate burning. Hey! Maybe you're one of those who like that type of cigar.
I'm sorry to say that La Perla Habana is definitely not one of my favorite cigars. I purchased the Chunktastic sampler to try all 5 different kinds. I really thought I'd like these cigars. I really WANTED to like them. But despite having rave reviews 90+ point ratings, I can honestly say I didn't like any of them. The cigars are beautifully constructed & the burn was more or less even. However, smoking them was dreadful. The flavor did not agree with my palate at all and they always seemed to dry out my mouth severely. No other cigar I smoke does this. Of course, this is all my personal taste & opinion. Clearly, the cigar is loved by many others. But I doubt I'll ever buy them again.
I almost did not order these based on the other reviews but I decided to give them a try. And I am sure glad that I did. I found La Perla to be among some of the better cigars that I have had. Granted, I have not been in the cigar world very long so I have yet to try some of the "greats", but I really enjoyed these. At the same time I ordered another 60 ring "doublewide" sampler that I was absolutely disappointed in. It was a different label and I am not going to trash it. But I will order the La Perlas again... no question. I guess that we indeed do all have different tastes.
I thoroughly enjoyed these sticks. I'm no expert, but these fit my pallet. I didn't find the peppery taste the other reviewer had. I just reordered and will probably keep an order on hand at this price.
Have been smoking these for a few months and really like them. Not to strong, cant buy individual ones (which would be nice) but these are a good smoke. They do not burn to fast, I had good luck with them....
I tried this sampler because the torpedo sample was out of stock. Some I really liked, some I didn't care for, but smoked them as one of the other critiques stated, paid for them so you endure the smoke. They all burned even and slow. The one I liked least really did dry my mouth out as well, which is not a good thing. Here are my choices that I liked best to worst: Rojo, Morado, Black Pearl, Cobre. I really liked the Rojo and the Morado a lot. The Black Pearl was ok, but I didn't care for the Cobre at all. Over all I like the Perla Habana brand. If I could just order a mixed pack of the Rojo & the Morado I would. I can't, so I will purchase the ones I like individually. I suggest trying them all as a sampler to decide what your palate likes as they are really well constructed flavorful smokes.
I'm a big fan of these big ring La Perlas. Burn even, smoke great to the end and are a super deal. Have gifted several others who have ordered them and have the same comments. A stable at Friday night cards.
Every cigar in this sampler is a kick-a$$ cigar. The big ring size makes it even better! Big cigars with big taste. They are wonderfully constructed and worth every penny. The price is very good for these cigars. Thanks CI.
I discovered these in a sampler I purchased for my husband, and he LOVED them. No matter what else I buy for him, he always says; "Hun, I really liked those La Perla Habana's... would really like to get some more of those..." So, I keep ordering :)
