Since debuting in 2012, Perla del Mar cigars have been a go-to selection for cigar enthusiasts in search of premium flavor at an affordable price point. But the brand's roots can be traced much further back in time, originally being launched by four Cuban brothers (the Garcias) in 1905. The name translates to mean Pearl of the Sea, describing the island of Cuba among its beautiful Caribbean waters.
In 2020, the Perla del Mar collection was updated to include the Perla del Mar Corojo cigar. In fact, this was part of a full brand overhaul of Perla del Mar, showcasing an all-new look and added intensity to each cigar's tobacco recipe. With Perla del Mar Corojo, the cigars are rolled at J.C. Newman's PENSA factory in Nicaragua, making use of all-Nicaraguan tobaccos throughout the binder and filler. But it is the Corojo wrapper that sets the cigar apart from its siblings, being raved by cigar fanatics and critics for showcasing a nostalgic experience with enough body to keep the palate on full alert from start to finish.
Q: What does the Perla del Mar Corojo cigar taste like?
A: Beginning with a medium-full intensity, cigar enthusiasts can expect a robust body and balanced, spicy flavors of cedar, black pepper, buttered toast, zesty cabinet spices, and sweet cream.
