Underrated: Rafael Gonzales Perlas

Submitted by Oliver on November 1, 2013 – 2:33 amNo Comment

I do like the Rafael Gonzales cigars, they are one of my favorites. The brand is often underrated by a lot of smokers, and the reason is still unknown to me. It is classified as a local brand by Habanos S.A., thus, having a minor market share.  However, I am sure that Habanos could invest more money into the brand’s development, make it more popular among smokers. But that already becomes their concern.

The cigar has an oily wrapper, is dark shadowed and is quite short – for those who prefer a 25 to 35 minutes smoke.

There’s nothing special about the pre-draw, just a small hint of barnyard which is almost unnoticeable.

The cigar is too short to tell you about any stages of aroma and flavors progression.  However, I would emphasize a lot of woody and earthy flavors, with hints of rich sweet complex chocolate and cream. I have also noticed a small hint of coffee in it, but it was a passing impression, so I am not sure about that. Will have to smoke another Perla to tell you for sure, and I wouldn’t having one more as I really liked it.

My overall impression is that this cigar is absolutely worth the money you spend on it and will hardly disappoint a notice or an aficionado. Designed for busy people who like smoking their Cubans but have almost no time, neither places for doing that.  If you became interested in this particular cigar, I’m sure you’ll always at www.my-cuban-cigars.com. They are my current suppliers, and I am absolutely thankful for what they do to keep their customers satisfied with service and products’ quality.
