These ain’t your grandma’s pearls....
Perla del Mar, originally a Cuban brand, literally means “Pearl of the Sea.” Legend has it that some of the earliest explorers who hit the shores of Cuba discovered a golden leaf, which they immediately named Perla del Mar. This historic brand is being reintroduced by J.C. Newman, the very same boutique factory that gave us premium blends like Brick House and El Baton.
Perla del Mar is a box-pressed Nicaraguan handmade. Dressed in a silky Ecuador Connecticut wrapper, it offers smooth sailing from the very first glance. Inside, a blend of all Nicaraguan long-fillers from three distinct growing regions merge in perfect harmony. Flavors are smooth and creamy, and they do wonders to please the palate from start to finish.
Perla del Mar received a well-deserved 90-rating noting: "Sweet woody notes, toast and hints of graham cracker make for a tasty smoke. The draw on this short, thick cigar is open and full, delivering substantial amounts of smoke."
