A little dry
These smokes will probably be great after sitting in the humidor for awhile. Right now they are a bit harsh.

Most Enjoyable ! ! !
I've never been overly keen on African Cameroon wrapper cigars, but this one is QUITE Tasty--dang decent draw--more than acceptable burn line, , , , , , guess maybe my " African Cameroon " opinion has changed with these Toro's. Glad I tried some One More time !! !! VCT in western MO

I purchased these on a very good sale offer. When I received them I saw AJ's name on the bottom of the box. After I smoked one I confirmed that once again he doesn't put out a bad smoke & quickly ordered a second box.

Black Pearl
Received cigars fairly dry, which makes them try to disassemble. Also a little stronger than I prefer. Probably due to dryness. Otherwise a good smoke with an even burn.

The Morado is my favorite Pearl cigar. It is hard to beat the price for a 93 rated cigar. Great smoke from start to finish.

I really enjoy the Morado - smooth and tasty. Arrived a little dry so they need to spend some time in the humidor.

I bought this as a package with some Gurkha and others. I found it to be fine as a quick smoke and one of those "hey what do you have there" and give them one cigars. I wouldn't subscribe to them but I'm not sorry on the deal.

Very nice!! Would definitely recommend....
Very tasty cigar! If you like Cameroon wrappers then you will like this. The taste of the Cameroon is a little more subtle than it is in say, an AF Hemingway, but still has that spicy sweet Cameroon taste we all know and love. Not getting any pepper at all, this is an extremely smooth smoke. And the finish on the cigar is quite interesting, I get an intense sweet cedar at the end! I have to say that for its profile, this is a rather complex cigar, I noticed a few different flavors throughout its duration. Overall for its price point, this is a damn fine cigar, easily a 4/5 imo...if you like Cameroon’s and more medium cigars, you certainly should give this one a look!

Very good cigar. Consistent flavor throughout. Nice ash and even burn down to the foot. Almost burned my fingers on one because I didn’t want to put it down.

Black pearl
Great even burn and flavor , tried one within a week of receiving them, the wrapper came apart halfway through . I plan on giving them a good long time in my humidor before sampling again.Hopefully that will remedy this because they otherwise are an enjoyable tasty smoke paired with a fine single malt.

Good construction, solid burn, made me feel like the holidays were around the corner
Currently enjoying this outside in mid Oct with a dark stout with the temps in the mid 50s. Initial light up provided oak and a subtle sweetness. As odd as this sounds, I also tasted a slight peanut oil and turkey (like a deep fried during Thanksgiving). Or maybe that's what he just reminded me of. As it burned further down there was some pepper and charred wood. Construction was solid and burn was very even. This one set in my humidor for quite some time (+/- 2 years) but still was solid. Wrapper did not start cracking until I got near the end, probably the dryness in the air outside.

Well constructed
I usually prefer a milder cigar. Tried this as part of a sampler. This was well constructed and burned nicely. Good cigar if you’re in the mood for a little more umph

Pretty Good Ceegar
The La Perla line is one of my favorites...and this one is a pretty good stick for the money. I do recommend letting them age for a couple of weeks or more in a properly humidified place, though...they come off the truck a little wet, which is to be expected.

really good cigar
I reeeaaallly like this stick. Bought a box during a "pallet sale", only vaguely familiar with La Perlas. I'm not one to discern individual flavors, but this was pleasant from end to end. I got an hour and a half outta the toro size. Maintained it's composure all the way, not turning hot or mushy, and tasting good till the last bit. No lighter touch ups. "Authentic, tobacco-y flavor." Kinda strong. Would buy again.

Recent pallet sale
Stocked the humidor during the recent pallet sale. Maduro and rojo were good but holy snit I love the cameroon morado. Excellent burn, toothy, cashew goodness! Great smoke. Please put on sale again

So so
Thought this would be good as an inexpensive alternative casual smoke, but just not into it. Somewhat tight draw and flavor just ok. I had another type of La Perla previously and wish I would have bought that instead. Not a repeat and probably will give away the rest

I should have bought the robusto. It hits the sweet spot as soon as you light it. While the one i purchased was not a churchill, it smoked like one. It was boring for the first 1/3 of the cigar, and then finally kicked in.

"Go To" Smoke
I love this blend. It is my "Go To" stogie. I have shared with friends and they always come back and ask if I have any on hand, which I always do. The biggest bonus is finding them on sale for around $2.50 a stick. Favorite sizes are the 5X50 or 6X60, depending on how much time I have to sit and enjoy every puff. Two thumbs up on this one guys.

Maduro? I don't smoke maduro!
I have never liked Maduro. Until now. The La Pearla Habana Maduro has changed my mind. Nor harsh in any way, feels good in the hand, smokes clean and even and is well made. Everything I look for in a cigar. The Belicoso is a good size for this smoke. Highly recommended.

I've been smoking these cigars for a couple of years now. They are consistently good. The only thing that has changed, is the price keeps going up. I you could lower the shipping cost ( which seems to have gone also), it would help. Us retired guys have a limited budget.

My Favorite Cigar
After trying many cigars, including many very highly rated and some "cigar of the year", the Black Pearl Morado is my main smoke. I find it's combination of taste, quality draw, nice flavor to the very end, and price the best choice for me. I like the Toro size, but I just started with a box of these Belicosos and I like them a little better.

Surprise! Still Tasty After All These Years.
I purchased ten of the Black Pearl Morado Toros more than a year ago. I had two left in humidor and decided to smoke one last night after a long layoff from the brand. What a pleasant surprise....tasty, big clouds of smoke, easy draw and a nice, even ash. I would have rated it five stars but the cigar started to get hot in the last quarter. Still, a pleasant smoke and will purchase again.

I believe this cigar is a real gem. Burns even and good draw doesn't have a very heavy after smoke taste. But you still feel like you have had a cigar that costs much more. I smoke the majority of these while golfing and it doesn't distract or disrupt my thoughts with having to nurse or constantly deal with.

My go-to Camaroon...
La Pearla did it's homework and the result is an amazing daily that you could (almost) pass off as a premium to your none-the-wiser buddies. Not overly powerful, not boringly timid. Sweet to a point, heady flavors midway through. Sure, that genuine Camaroon wrapper is a touch dainty and might unravel a bit when chewed on, but what it lacks in firmness it makes up for in substance. A 93 rating by Cigar Aficionado? Well deserved.

I've enjoyed this cigar quite a bit in the past but this the 4 of the 10 cigars had very poor construction. Both wrapper and binder were lacking and too much draw sue to the binder not even wrapping the entire cigar in some spots. The other 6 cigars were as I always remembered But disappointed with this batch.

Tried 3 of the pack of 5. I don't want to smoke the rest of them! I think they are plain Plano nothing cigars. Just nothing there. certainly not worth over 50¢. For a great cheap cigar, check out Scoundrels Lonsdale Connecticut from TC, Mucho better for the $.

Disappointing construction, arrived dry and flaking apart
I have ordered and enjoyed this cigar on several occasions. This most recent box, however, is a huge disappointment. Of the first 5 Cigars I’ve tried only two could be smoked and the other 3 fell apart and had to be tossed. Seems like a quality control problem either at the factory or in the warehouse. Very disappointing and not what I expect as a longtime customer of CI.

Let them sit awhile
First impression wasn’t good so I let them sit in the humidor for several months and it made a world of difference. Enjoyed 2 in the past week.

One of My Favorites
The Black Pearl Morado is one of my favorites and I have been ordering them for years. Usually a great medium tasty cigar with a good burn. This latest box didn't seem to taste as great as in the past. It may be due to a bad batch. Once I'm done with the box I will order them again to satisfy my curiosity.

I usually purchase the Morado and they are excellent. This latest box was extremely sub-par. I will order them again, but if I get another bad batch, I'll probably have to notify CI their stock isn't up to the standards it usually is.

Have smoked these on and off for a couple of years, and are a nice smoke. For a while I held off on buying them because they were burning too fast and unevenly. This last box burned nicely.

La Perla Habana Black Pearl Morado Robusto,
Not a bad cigar but the things I was disappointed about were that it burned too fast (packed too loosely) so the last third ran a little too hot. The flavor profile was a little weaker than the last time I tried these which was several years ago. All in all it was OK but note great.

Cigar tastes good, but packing inconsistent
I'm not a great cigar connoisseur, but I found the cigar to have a great taste. It lights easily and burns evenly. The only problem I had was one of consistency of packing. Some were well packed but some were very lightly packed. I would still buy them again.

Good price point but no Wow factor
Definitely a medium to full flavor cigar. Well constructed (burned evenly with a solid ash). Though not a bad cigar, I don't think I will buy it again. I found the beginning of the cigar to start off quite pleasant. But as it progressed past the mid point, it got bitter. For the price it was good, but it didn't leave me with that wow factor.

Still too early to tell-I've had just one since they came in. They need time in my humidor, I think. Your ordering and delivery services have always been excellent, by the way. I don't deal with anyone else.

Not what expected
I was/am very disappointed in the quality of these cigars. The ratings led me to believe that these cigars were of a different quality than what the reality is. The cigars were/are : Harsh ( medium but harsh) Inconsistent draw ( loose and very tight wrapped ) Inconsistent burn ( canoe / constant relight) Wrapper cracks ( not all)

Not horrible, but not good either.
I am very disappointed in this cigar. I assumed with a 93 rating, it would be much better than it is. The burn is good, the draw is good, but the flavor is not. I was hoping to find this cigar to be something that I would smoke on a daily basis, not gonna happen. I will say this, I'm going to give it a month or so in the humidor and see if it improves. The stick seemed to be a little dry when I received it. So.... I will make another assessment in about a month.

An absolutely delicious cigar!
An absolutely delicious cigar. There are a few cigars that capitalize on the deliciousness of the Cameroon wrapper, some that come to mind are the CAO L'Anniversaire Cameroon, and the Torano' 1916 Cameroon. This cigar vaults itself to the top of the list. I was blown away by how smooth and complex the smoke was. Creamy, caramel, oily, deliciousness. This very close to being one of my all time favorite smokes right now. Waste no time picking this one up.

Cameroon Lover
I'm a sucker for a good Cameroon wrapper and this one really hits the spot. Not only is it a great tasting cigar, it's such a unbearable price. Nice aroma, good ash and fine flavor with a glass of Bourbon. I've tried the Rojo and Oro as well and am very happy with the Pearl brand, will keep me coming back.
4 out of 5
Truthfully
Okay, I'm not going to compare this cigar with any number of unusual hints of non- smokable items, which I believe to be bizarre. But what I will say is, it burns straight, which is important, in that you don't have to relight it, and that keeps the smoke cool to the tongue until it's about time to let it go. A claim not all cigars can honestly do. So, buy them, smoke them, and smile because they're carefree, the wife will approve of the smell, and you can worry about some other little thing that's unimportant

The lapearla mirador is a medium to medium strong that burns extremely well. At 71% in my humidor there perfect. A good strong fine tobacco taste that's not overwhelming. I'll keep these in my humidor. Lapearla does not make a bad cigar and for the money there hard to beat!!

I love Cameroon, and I love the robusto size. These cigars were great especially at that price point. Only size I would like to see them in even more would be like a gordo or maybe 5"x60 to ramp up the flavor but keep them shorter. I think that if you like Cohiba Red Dot but hate paying that price, these are every bit as tasty and a good alternative. Haven't had a bad one yet construction-wise, either.

Morado - The best Go-To cigar ever
I've tried many cigars over the years, but the one I've settled on, and takes a commanding portion of my humidor, is the La Perla Morado Robusto. This cigar is always consistent in flavor, smoke and ash. No surprises. Beautifully wrapped with an even burn, plenty of smoke on the palette and a medium to full flavor that I just haven't been able to find in any other cigar. A great every day cigar at a price point that can't be beat.

OK cigar, but not what I was hoping for.
I really like Cameroon wrappers, and I'd read good things about the the La Perla Morado, so I ordered a 5-pack. Have to say it wasn't as good as I'd hoped. While the cigar smokes smoothly throughout, the first half is very underwhelming. No real flavor to speak of. After the midway point, it does pick up and you can start to taste the flavor of the tobaccos. But overall, for the price, you're better off looking elsewhere. If you like Cameroons, try a Partagas instead.

Customer Testimonials
Got turned on to these about five years ago and have been in regular rotation in my humidor ever since. True African Cameroon wrapper just puts these in a whole other ballpark from the $2.00-$5.00 per stick gang. Spicy at first, broadside of flavor, and then... no, not overpowering, settles in! Amazing smoke, truly. Toro sized at 6X50 are perfect. Since they went to simple packaging, the price is stunning at CI. Construction is wonderful, and after literally hundreds of them later, not a single disappointment among each cigar. Age them a few weeks in the humidor, and be prepared for 40 minutes of smooth, nutty, spicy but flavorful burn. At the prices CI offers, you only lose if you don't buy.
JO of APPLETON, WI
If the La Perla Habana Morado were priced at $50/box I would smoke no other. Unfortunately I smoke 4-5 sticks per day, so I have to mix in some $2/ea sticks to prevent my wife from going on a rampage. There are very, very few offerings that can keep up with this multi-faceted stick: Diesel, Partagas, Fuente, and Padilla. Fortunately the LPH Morado sells for less, so it will always find a spot in my humidor. Smooth, well built, potent, and tasty...like a good woman!
RP of WALESKA, GA
I've learned in 44 years of smoking dem ceegars that price has NOTHING to do with how I'm gonna like a stick...and the La Perla Black Pearl Morado is one of the reasons why! I like the bigger sizes, got me a box of Toros, and smoked 'em all... enjoyed every one! I don't get picky with my smokes, all I care about is hey...when I open my humidor, do my eyes fall upon a particular stick...and these fit the bill! They are gone now, so I'll be ordering more in the near future!
VJ of Fillmore, CA
What an unappealing pale wrapper with an odd greenish hue. Don't be fooled; this one tastes, draws, and burns like perfection.
MM of Bayamon, PR
The La Perla Habana Black Pearl Morado in the 6x60 is such a smooth and tasty smoke! The draw is perfect. Cedar, leather and creamy coffee bean notes. The ash is white and solid, easily producing 2" before dropping. A real pleasurable experience.
DO of Arlington, TX
Taste like Jesus rolled them!!! I too was a skeptic than I pulled the trigger when a special offer came by and, Shhh! - Now I'd pay 3x the normal price. Complexity right from the start, once you think you've figured it out - BOOM - It changes again. These will always be in my humidor.
WS of Taylor, PA
The Black Pearl Morados have quickly become a favorite. Great construction, even draw; smoke maturing in the air around you to a rich sweetness. The belicosos almost always burn evenly; very little maintenance involved. Overall a much better cigar than many that cost three times as much. Hint: CI’s periodic 20% off sales apply to these, making the price (even more) surprising considering the quality.
DS of Grove City, PA
I got a box ten months ago and have one every month or so. Was a very good cigar off the truck, but every time I have one they seem to get better. The Cameroon wrapper is top notch, imparting that unique, semi-sweet taste you only get from a true Cameroon. Pair this with Nicaraguan fillers and you get a real winner. I have been a HUGE fan of Nicaraguan tobaccos since Oliva and Perdomo were just dipping their toes in the water. Well deserving of the 93 rating on it's own merits, but when you factor in value I would bump it up a couple more points. My 2nd box is now on it's way and these will always be in my humidor.
TS of Elkhart, IN
This is a great cigar! In the past two years plus, I have smoked 10 boxes. ALL 200 of those cigars were perfect. Great draw, great burn, great smoke, no wrapper issues at all. Needless to say it is on auto-ship, and I buy them whenever there is any special. Keep a box in you humidor, if you can.
RD of FORT COLLINS, CO
One of the best under $3.00 per cigar brands out there. Not sure who's really making it but I don't care because it's reliable and considerable every time.

Love them, and many people do. They are on back order last three times I tried to order. Rojo Toro is right up there. Like them almost as much.
JM of Fair oaks, TX
Hands down one of the BEST CIGARS I have ever smoked. Pure pleasure from the first draw. I can't keep myself faithful to one cigar when their are so many wonderful products on the market. Here we have history with no over pricing. Here we have tradition and no thousand label marketing. If I were to be stuck on an island? Hands down the Morado is my cigar of choice!
WS of Taylor, PA
If a cigar a day keeps the doctor away then this is my daily medicine. I personally taste unique hints and aroma of black cherry with a nice smooth sweetness on the end. A lovely experience that has deserved its accolades. These have a future with me. Life is good.
DP of Danville, AL
....At first seemed a little harsh, but after a few more puffs.....this cigar turned really nice. Glad I pulled the trigger on them!
SL of Horseheads, NY
I typically smoke a cigar or two throughout the week with co-workers and usually burn a few more over the weekend. Since I don’t go through too many, I don’t think twice about splurging for an hour or more of genuine smoking enjoyment. I don’t do “every day cigars”—either it’s good or it isn’t. The La Perla Habana Black Pearl Morado Belicosos are fantastic at any price. I am passionate about cigars, and while I like to give them some time to sit in my humi, like any passion I get excited—I always light one as soon as I get a box. I did the same today when I came home to two boxes of these; I’m glad I did and can only look forward to how they mellow after some time in the box. First off, although the CI description says “Cuban-esque,” I would disagree, I didn’t get the dry cocoa powder and slight “twang” from this cigar that you would normally associate with a cigar from south of Miami. That isn’t a bad thing. What this cigar excels at is bring the best qualities of its constituents into a glorious whole—the result of which is indeed greater than the sum of its parts. The slight sweetness of a true African Cameroon marries beautifully with a foundation of the savory nuances Nicaraguan tobacco has become famous for. It doesn’t need to be, “Cuban-esque,” it is something quite different, but just as good or better than anything coming from the forbidden island. These cigars smell like a like a cedar wrapped, chocolate malt, and sea-salted Caramello—divine! They start off like an AF Hemingway with a little more oomph and develop into a full bodied, full flavored masterpiece--from Vivaldi’s Four Seasons to Gustav Holst’s Planets. From a blanc de noir Champagne to a rich, slightly tannic Bordeaux. It finishes with a roasted nuttiness and wood really coming out to carry the tune with the Cameroon’s sweetness as a back note. I went beyond smoking it to a nub—I nearly roached it. This is what smoking cigars is all about. Highly recommended.

I have been happy with previous purchases of this brand, however my most recent box arrived very dried out. The wrappers disintegrate. I keep them in a small humidor with a propylene-glycol based humidifier, and have not had a problem until now. This had been my go-to brand for a reasonably-priced regular smoke, but I am going to try some others going forward. Disappointed.

This is one of the best cigars I've ever smoked. Dollar for dollar I don't see a better value out there. Try some today!

The Morado Robusto is my favorite Cameroon wrapped cigar. I have ordered boxes of the Rojo, Maduro, Morado, & one bundle of Oro, as well as two of the Cameroon Figurados in the past year. Many were either discounted or had freebies like a five pack sampler, keeping my overall cost at less than two bones per stick. Considering the quality & price, it's hard to beat the deals CI offers & as a result, I keep La Perla vitolas in my regular rotation. None are better than the Morado, which may be La Perla's most full bodied blend. It smells great & emits clouds of spice filled smoke. Notes of caramel, pepper & cedar delight the senses & coat the palate, while never becoming harsh or cloying. A recent inventory of my humidors revealed only one Morado Robusto & four Classic Maduros left, so I will be looking for a deal, in order to restock my inventory of these affordable, delicious cigars.

A new add to my list of must have in stock, a great, great smoke!

....After seeing all the great reviews on the Morado, I decided to buy a five pack.... I had high hopes for this one and really looked forward to getting them. After letting them lay for a few days I cut one and got zero draw.... I know this happens sometimes, so I went for another and got the same result. I decided to let one sit on the counter for a day and....still no draw. Although I heard they have good flavor, construction could be an issue...

I bought a La Perla Habana sampler as part of a Daily Deal along with my regular order and didn't think anything about it. I was enjoying each separate one without much thought until I got to the Morado. Wow, I was not expecting such a great cigar. It blew me away. I then discovered its high rating and understand why. Now it's one of my favorites. Another plus is the price; I can smoke more of them for less. I just picked up a handful in the Bethlehem store this week.

Found it to be medium-bodied, even though advertised as full-bodied and cubanesque. Smooth as silk, notes of rich black coffee, almost espresso, and some hints of caramel.

Morado is a great medium-bodied blend. Competes very well, flavor wise, against others in this category, like 5 Vegas Classic and Ave Maria. However, it falls short in construction. That delicate Cameroon wrapper can't help but crack or unravel at some point in the smoking experience. It takes a little patience to get through a box, but the flavor is worth the effort.
AM of METAMORA, IL
Cameroon wrapper is not as tasty as some of the other La Perla offerings. But overall, a satisfactory smoke. Good construction but draw was a little tight. Good straight burn though, nice ash. The real treat was the Grand Pearl 5pk I got along side. Those of you who didn't spring the extra five bones missed out BIG TIME! But thats another story.

Just purchased a box of the Morado and all I can say is they are fantastic! A nice medium to full bodied smoke, that's soooooo smooth. Usually I wait a month or two to let any cigar sit in the humidor, but I couldn't wait. And I'm glad I didn't! They don't need it. Im on my third one in two days. Very happy with this purchase and I will be buying more in the future. Thanks for the great deal CI! Once again you guys came through.

Got a box from CI today and I have to say simply I love this cigar. Got mine on a daily special so the price was awesome too. And these cigars arrived oily and perfect to smoke straight off the truck. Look out rocky p and the edge, this cigar may become my go to...for sure will be a fixture in my humi.

I bought my first box of these while deployed to Afghanistan. I loved them. I then bought the sampler to try the other Black Pearl varities. All of them were good but none compare to the Morado. You will not find a better cigar at this price. $60 for a box of 20 is worth every penny. I have purchased several boxes of these now and always have a few in the humidor.

Having getting back into the cigar scene after a few years and trying a number of great sticks.....this one is fantastic. I keep these in my locked humidor away from over eager hands.. Great flavor,mellow...good even burn..Looks like I have found one that I will buy quite a few more of..
MK of Ferdinand, IN
Excellent cigar. Great construction and burn. Rich espresso taste with light spice finish. Love it!
WC of San Rafael, CA
What a great cigar!full body, full flavor, nice big clouds of smoke! this has a very complex flavor that sits well with me as do all of the other flavors I have tried. This is a great everyday cigar with a cup of joe,and you just cant beat the price!It has a good ash,a even burn and a good draw.
RM of N.ogden, UT
I'm a big fan of Cameroon wrappers any way and this is a really good cigar. Spicy, some hints of cocoa, well made, good burn, and the flavor stays consistent till you burn your fingers. If you like the original Partagas but have a hard time smoking them everyday due to price....buy a box of these, you be very happy.
LM of Porterville, CA
Most try, will keep this one in my bedroom humidor, away from visitors. Very good flavor, smooth and cream taste to the end, nice ash and smoke, no much attention need to a evenfull burn. Glad to buy double portion on Joe's Jam at still price for 20 compare if bought a box but no doubt will buy a box at CI price any way. Couldn't help burn two within 4 hours with some mixed spirits.

Usually I take ratings like a 93 with a grain of salt. Maybe my tastes are just that different from everyone else's? The Perla Morado however, is deserving. I haven't had a box of cigars that has been this excellent throughout in a long time. As soon as you light up, this cigar is complex. You will hit everything from spicy, to chocolate, to earthy, and woody. I keep waiting for it to take me over the edge, but it gives you a flavor without overpowering you, then completely changes into something else. The burn is even, the draw is easy. I smoke EVERY SINGLE ONE down until my lips are burning. Bonus: look at the price and no wonder they are on back order.

Recently got a box of the La Perla Habana Morado in Toro size after reading good things about Black Pearl. Having smoked a handful of these the verdict is: Great Cigar! Spicy with a decent burn, medium to full. And this is from one finicky long time cigar smoker. Price is not always an indication of quality.
GW of Riverside, CA
My brother turned me on to one of these Morado's and I have to say I think it will become one of favorites in the humidor. The burn and draw are fantastic and so is the flavor. This cigar is every bit worth its high rating. I recently bought a box of the Black Pearls but I like these MUCH better. I'm kind of biased toward African Camaroon wrappers anyway. These cigars are offered at unbelievable prices and I'll be stocking up on more.
DD of Antioch, CA
Luv it luv it luv it. A great cigar at a great price. Well made, cedar, earth, and leather. One of my alltime favorites.
JH of Gastonia, NC
I've only written a few of these reviews, but I feel compelled to write one about this cigar. I've smoked cigars since the late 70's. Not that I'm any pro, but of all the stogies that I've smoked, this cigar is one of my favorites.Once you light one up, the aroma and flavor are outstanding. This flavor, aroma, and great taste last throughout the cigar. This type of cigar would sell for three times what CI wants, if bought at a brick and mortar store. The construction of this cigar is perfect, as is the burn. All I can say is, I love 'em, and they will have a permanent spot in my humidor. Well worth their 92 rating, if not higher!!!!!
BG of Kansas City, MO
WOW! This is a great smoke for the price! I got a Black Pearl in a sampler and thought it was good. Bought a box of the Morado and it was well worth it!!

La Perla Habano Morado

Brandon S

                Well well, here we go again! This time I have a selection that’s not only pleasing to the palate, but also to the wallet! I, along with a few of my fellow colleagues were recently on a trip to Nicaragua. While there, we visited many factories where we worked on new blends and sampled blends already in production for quality control purposes. While visiting one particular factory, a blend stood out head and shoulders above the rest. One that a member of our group touted as “the best cigar of the trip!” That cigar would be the La Perla Habana Morado. Some may recognize this 93-rated cigar from a few years back when it hit the market with over-the-top packaging comprised of a heavy cedar chest that, when opened revealed individual slots that housed each cigar. Expensive packaging often means an expensive price tag, and that was in a pre-SCHIP world! Now with a 52.75% federal tax on all cigars it has become very difficult to bring our cigar lunatics a deal worth writin’ home about!

                With this new legislation in place, just about everything is taxable including the packaging! Some manufacturers have had to come up with ways to tighten the old belt in order to keep their cigars reasonably priced. One such way is to scale back the ‘grandioseness’ (yes, that’s a word I just made up) of the boxes. One such example of this is the recent facelift that the La Perla Habana line has received. The fine folks at La Perla scaled back their packaging to a simple yet elegant box and in doing so have been able to save you mucho dinero (that’s lots of duckets to you gringos). 

                But rest assured my friends, everything about the cigar itself remains the same: same African Cameroon wrapper, same binder, and same fillers – it’s even produced in the SAME Nicaraguan-based factory that’s always made this fine smoke.

                I’ll tell you what – after enjoying literally dozens of these beauties, this cigar is spot on. A full-flavored, medium bodied cigar that exudes a pleasing aroma. The blend itself is extremely complex with a strong underlying tobacco flavor that will keep you coming back for more.

 
                A great cigar with an equally great price!
