Perla Del Mar Perla TG
Perla del Mar cigars are a traditional Cuban brand brought back to life by J.C. Newman as an exquisite box-pressed blend. Silky Ecuadorian Connecticut wrappers conceal a Nicaraguan core that hails from four different regions: Pueblo Nuevo, La Reina, Condega and Jalapa. This combination offers the complexity and depth of flavor cigar smokers have come to expect of Nicaraguan tobacco, at a surprisingly affordable price. Made in the same factory as the highly-rated Brick House and El Baton cigars.
Let me start by saying I m not a huge Connecticut wrapper fan. That being said, I got this as a bonus cigar with an order I placed. I read the reviews and thought, Ok, we ll see about that. . I tried it last night for an Independence Day celebratory smoke, and was completely blown away. Have I mentioned that I m not a huge Connecticut wrapper fan? I could not BELIEVE the awesome flavor of this cigar. I almost burned my lips smoking it out of existence. VERY sorry to see this one die. So I went back and dug deeper on my research and, sure enough, there was the reason staring me in the face. Before lighting this cigar up, I had no idea who made it. When I discovered it was a J.C. Newman creation, everything suddenly became crystal clear. I will be buying these IN BULK at the earliest opportunity. Mr. Newman, YOU sir, are a genius. This is the ONLY Connecticut wrapper I will be stocking in my humidor.
