Perlas (1/5)

  1. I don’t care for Punta, but Principe and Fuerza are great.
  2. I had exactly same experience I had exactly same experience as you.
  3. Then not necessary, but some still do it just for peace of mind.
  4. El Principe tastes and smells the best out of their core range, but it is too small for me. La Punta is just a boring smoke IMHO. So the one I reach for most often is the La Fuerza, but if you like smaller size cigar I suggest going for El Principe instead.
  5. My speed depends on the weather, if I like the cigar, and if the size is prone to overheating. Needless to say, if I really like the cigar and the weather is nice I will smoke slowly regardless of the size.
  6. What I have noticed is the intensity and flavors is more on darker color wrappers, but construction has been most consistent relative to other robustos I smoke. Never had a tight draw, and very few were underfilled.
  7. I have the exact same box code and date. I felt it was a bit rough tasting, flavors were muddled, and underfilled. I was expecting more for what these cost. Disclaimer I don’t regularly smoke Punch.
  8. First-time cigar smokers usually don’t know what they like, so I suggest a brand that kind of has little of everything and not too strong like RYJ. That’s what I started with. In terms of size, I suggest robusto (50 ring) or hermosa (48 ring) or corona gorda (46 ring) because won’t overheat and become harsh/bitter. If going with RYJ, the short churchill or petit royales are my recommendations. Of course I’m generalizing and you have to get a good box or stick.
  9. This has been my experience as well. I’ll take Shorts of Super any day even though I prefer bigger cigars.
  10. Got really crappy Hoyo Epicure Deluxe that was RAT 2020. Really underfillled and wrapper doesn’t burn well.
  11. Many NC are Maduro because it gives a sweetness and flavor to cover up the dog poop inside. Of course there are exceptions, such as the premier brands (Padron, Tatuaje, Etc.).
  12. Earthy... makes me imagine compost contaminated the leaves, and then psychologically hard for me to enjoy the cigar.
