Doing this a little differently this week to see how it goes.
I am reviewing the La Perla Habana Black Pearl COBRE in the toro size this week. This cigar is available in three sizes and three wrappers. I am reviewing the connecticut wrapper this week.
Starting out I am getting a bit of spice with a creamy smoke and a flavor I can not yet distinguish. I would say this cigar starts out at a high mild or low medium in body. Continuing on through the first third and I was mostly getting a sweet tobacco taste and the body stayed about medium. Smoking more of the cigar brings out a bit more spice with the same woody and leather notes combined. At the end of the second third I would say the cigar is a solid medium and climbing. Rounding out the cigar I kept getting the woody leather taste that intermingled with each other but the spice did not pick up very much more. I would consider the cigar a full body but on the low end.
I will buy more of these to keep around as they make a nice evening smoke for me when I do not want to pay a whole lot of attention to the cigar. Give them a try, at $3 a piece for the box price you will not break the bank in at least trying them.
