Hello everyone, I’m Hadassah Hallman.
I’m Barry Lyman.
And we’re here to do a
review for Perla del Mar. This is their
Maduro blend. When me and Barry are here
at the store, a lot of customers come in
and they have never smoked a cigar or
they’re getting into it, and one of the
first things they say, you know, what is
your suggestion. Barry will take them
into the humidor and we love to take
them to the Perla del Mars. They have a
Connecticut offering as well as a Maduro.
Generally speaking when a
customer comes in I try to get a little
bit of information out of them as to
what they prefer: medium, mild, full body
and when they tell me a mild cigar I
generally will lead them directly to the
Perla del Mar. It’s a very mild cigar
and they’ve now come out with the Maduro,
which is more of a medium bodied cigar.
Leaning more, in my opinion, a little bit
more to the medium-mild (ra)ther than the
medium to the full body.
For sure if you
want to try a more full bodied cigar but
you don’t want to go a complete complete
on that full full side, this is
definitely the cigar for you. It’s got a
lot of taste to it, lots of smoke on the
first initial light, you’re going to find
a lot of cocoa notes. What do you pick up
from it Barry?
Picking up a little bit
of coffee, cocoa, very creamy
flavor. It is a very smooth cigar. I do
get a lot of smoke out of this cigar, even in the beginning of the cigar
I’m picking up some coffee flavor and a
little bit of cream.
For sure, for sure.
Now the main components of this cigar
are Nicaraguan, the difference between
this and the Connecticut offering for
Perla del Mar is the wrapper. This is
Connecticut broadleaf as opposed to the
Connecticut shade on the lighter
offering that they have.
Another point on
this particular cigar is the binder and
the wrapper actually comes from four
So it does pack some good flavor in
this particular stick.
For sure. If you
are a fan of the Padron Two, Three, Four
Thousand series in the Maduro,
definitely give these a shot. They will
definitely have that flavor that is
just as similar to it, with maybe a little
bit, you know, different notes that you
might pick up on as well. Now Barry let’s
talk about this wrapper here.
This particular wrapper, this Connecticut
Broadleaf wrapper is an absolutely
beautiful wrapper. I like the way they’ve
done the band on it. The wrapper is
absolutely beautiful. And pay particular
attention to the ash look at this I mean
that is just a beautiful ash, it burns
true, I mean there’s no canoeing on this
cigar. It’s just a beautiful white ash on
there, burns evenly, just an all around
That’s all we have for you
guys today, folks. Definitely leave us
your comments. If you try the cigar
we’d love to hear from you. Barry I think
I’m going to finish enjoying my
corona, kick back, and and see what else
it has to offer me.
I think I’ll join you.
Thanks guys, have a great day.
See you next
