La Perla Habana Grand Pearl Toro Cigar Review

This 6×50 stick features a light tan satin wrapper with a dry feel, minimal veins, tight seams, double cap and sweet wood aroma. First light reveals a great draw with plentiful but thin smoke output showing medium bodied flavors of a zingy almost bitter wood with a weird alcohol like taste. The first third burns fairly quickly, with mild-medium flavors of a slightly sweet wood and short clean finish. Constructions is good, burn isn’t perfect but doesn’t need any touchups. Smoke output is smooth but airy and minimal. 30 minutes in at the 1/2 way point, flavors are the same but body picks up to medium while the finish grows long. Ending at 55 minutes, the last third showed no further changes, proving the stick to be very consistent all the way down. Thank you very much to viewer Terence Glynn for sending this one in!

    Would you consider the weird alcohol taste a bad or more interesting? Like did it seem like they were trying for some sort of complexity. Or just one of those ” thanks for trying out”kind of things.

      It was just interesting – but nothing to do with the blend I think – just a brief aftertaste.

    Got this in my COMC from CI. Decided to smoke this one tonight. Not much going on with this stick. Real mild and not much taste wise in my opinion.

    Just bought a Mazo of 20 of these from CI.

    The price was right… hopefully the cigars will be also.

    Thanks for the review.
