I love the smell of insane cigar deals in the morning.

La Perla’s Black Pearl is an, er, jewel of the first order. An uber-tasty maduro with lip-smacking, deep maduro flavors galore, trumped only by CI’s providential discount pricing. Call me insane, call me anything, you can even call the men in the white coats, but just remember to call me for dinner because there’s no denying the goodness of this deal. Black Pearl brings a jet-black Brazilian Arapiraca maduro wrapper which disguises a meaty long-filler blend of aged tobaccos from Nicaragua, Mexico, and the Dominican to create a rich, brawny profile that’s medium in body and balanced throughout. Complex notes of toast and wood mingle with a subtle caramel sweetness, while the rich aroma fills the room with deep charcoal scents. Rich and flavorful, Black Pearl would be a bargain at twice the price but at CI’s introductory offer, it’s downright epic.

I'd definitely say this is on the upper end of medium. Fairly bold, somewhat peppery. Excellent burn, slightly tight draw through the first half. Not incredibly complex, but good flavor throughout. Got almost to the label before the ash fell off , straight as an arrow. A very serviceable inexpensive cigar for smokers who go for a richer flavor with some leather and nicotine.

I've smoked this brand of cigars for a long time and these are a good smoke. The draw is smooth with a lot of smoke. The taste is very mild. The cigars burn even with a long ash.

Good cigar, very well-rounded. Great taste, great aroma, even burn, perfect draw. Enjoyed from start to finish. Priced better than fair, I would expect to pay a little more for this stick. Keep them coming CI, I am going to be a repeat customer for this one.

The Black Pearl Habana is a peppery style Robusto with great flavor. This cigar smokes easy with a very nice aroma. The construction is solid and it burns even. If you enjoy peppery style robusto style cigars with a little bit of spice, then I would recommend this habana.

These are my wife's favorite smokes. Forget about the ash and the smoke...she doesn't care about that! And yeah, the draw is perfect--not too tight; not too loose. Perfect. It's the rich flavor without any harshness that makes this a great smoke, right down to the nub. The REAL nub. The very end of the stogie. She loves 'em, and I've had (recently) a heckuva time getting 'em (I guess the word is out on these!). There's a reason why they're so popular. WHATEVER YOU DO, DON'T BUY THESE!!! Leave 'em for the rest of us!

These are good. Good construction, all the way thru to the end. Even burn, great draw. Consistent flavor profile too. Toasted bread, with a dried grass and wood notes and slight graham cracker sweetness. You will not regret trying these.

La Perla Habana Black Pearl

Steve R

In case you haven’t seen our latest catalog, get on it, son. We have some mighty fine deals in there, let alone some fantastic new blends....in addition to the return of classic gems such as this: La Perla Habana. Currently, the Black Pearl and Classic are here, in house, and the Morado, Rojo, and Cobre are on the way. Since the Black Pearl was one of my favorite cigars many moons ago, I’ve decided to revisit this dark and oily lovely to see if we can’t spark the flame once more.

Years ago, this cigar was pitch black. But that’s comparing it to the rest of the blends on the market. Today, it’s as dark as many maduros....but I’ll be damned if it ain’t pretty to look at. The Brazilian Arapiraca is black as night with minimal veins and maximum oils - you may know, this is one of my favorite wrapper varieties. The pre-light aroma has hints of barnyard with a sweet tobacco note.

Upon lighting, a rush of rich and toasty nuances smack my palate. Dark tobacco and charcoal backed by a subtle spice that lingers on the tip of my tongue. The smoke wafting overhead is warm and rich with a unique oily note. After a half inch, I already begin feeling this cigar in the pit of my stomach. I wouldn’t call it full-bodied, but this Black Pearl no doubt has some meet on its bones. An inch in and the spice has become much more mellow, and the bouquet is now displaying a deep, oaky note with toasty influence. After a solid 30 minutes I’m just past the midway point. This slow-burning cigar - the 6.25” x 52 Belicoso - is pumping out a ton of thick, gray smoke right now and the flavor has yet to back down. In fact, the spice that I noticed in the first inch is now creeping its way back up the sides of my palate, while oak and toast remain in the center. Through the nose the smoke is surprisingly smooth with a touch of red pepper. In the final third the bouquet develops a dense earthy tone, which is likely the result of the zesty Mexican tobaccos within. I love it, it’s mingling with the increased spice quite nicely and remains a focal point down to the final inch and a half. The finale is assertive yet balanced - a culmination of spice, oak, toast, and earth all wrapped inside a tidy package with a purdy bow on top.

It’s been a while since I’ve nubbed a cigar. Maybe there’s a nostalgia factor at play here, or maybe the cigar really is that good, but I nubbed this Belicoso until it became too hot to handle. Tasty.

Since writing this review, I’ve burned a handful of Black Pearls in the Belicoso size to ensure consistency is still spot on - back in the day these babies burned exactly the same, cigar after tasty cigar. Much to my delight, nothing has changed - outside of a slight uptick in strength with a couple sticks - which will likely change with a little humi-time - the flavor is spot-on and delicious with every puff.

On the prowl for a dark, toasty maduro with ample complexity and impressive balance? You can’t go wrong here. Just beware, because every now and then one of these Black Pearls may mellow you a bit....but if you’re anything like me, that won’t faze you one iota.

note: we received a rush shipment of pre-packed mazos of 5, but don’t worry, full boxes will be here any day now!
