Much like J.C. Newman’s Brickhouse and El Baton lines, the Perla del Mar is no slouch when it comes to flavor. The special blend of Ecuadorian and Nicaraguan tobaccos produces a medium-bodied Connecticut that will keep aficionados intrigued and surely spoil any beginner.
Flavor Report: Damp Wood, Undergrowth, Raw Pizza Dough, Earth, Lacquer, Charred Wood, Lemon Peel
Overall: 7/10 If you’re looking for a cigar similar to Baccarat, but with a bit more advanced flavor, you’ve just found it.
