Another La Perla gem
Ask some of the cigar enthusiasts out there what a 90+ rated cigar is supposed to cost, and I’m sure they’ll tell you $8, $9, even $10+. These guys insist that you have to hand your paycheck over in order to get a “real” cigar. Well, you and I both know these guys are nuts, and La Perla Habana Black Pearl is the nail in the coffin of that argument. The last two blends in this line, Black Pearl Rojo and Black Pearl Maduro, are a mere $3 apiece and have received a ‘90’ and ‘93’-rating. And now, we’ve got the same aged Cuban-seed long-filler tobaccos of those blends with a smooth Ecuadorian Connecticut wrapper.
They’ve got another winner on their hands here with this mellow-bodied blend (and I say that with confidence because the samples we received originally disappeared in a matter of hours). Lighting these suckers up you’ll be impressed by the savory, smooth, creamy notes of this complex, well-balanced morning stogie. And, here’s the best part — La Pearl Habana Black Pearl Oro starts at an even lower price than its fuller-bodied companions.
