When I was toasting the cigar, the aroma I got was a BBQ pit, the cigar started off with a blast of spice and when I retro haled it, I got leather notes rolling off the tongue. The spice did tone down a bit by the end of the first third, but the other note I noticed was a maple-like sweetness. The cigar’s flavors in the second third changed slightly to a leather, sugary sweetness, and funny enough, I got notes of grilled meat with a slight surprise of a creamy finish. For the final third, the cigar stayed a medium to full body. The flavors really didn't change a whole lot in the final third with the exception of some bits of cinnamon thrown around it. From the start, it looked like it was going to be a full bodied cigar, but it mellowed out and turned out to a medium to full bodied cigar. Picked on 08/04/2022

You've no doubt heard the expression "Diamond in the Rough"... well, I'm here to share with you a "Pearl of the Ocean". The English translation of this Spanish-named brand is quite fitting, as this is a gem of a cigar that is luckily also easy on the wallet. The Perla del Mar Corojo is a wonderful cigar, with the first half consisting of leather, some spice, and a little bit of coffee notes. Both the flavor and the strength have proved themselves to be a medium to full. Once you hit the second half, the draw and burn become truly amazing, while the strength remained the same (which I was surprised by but loved). At this point the flavors intensified, giving off notes of figs, cocoa, and coffee, which were an amazing mix. Entering the final stretch, the spice starts to mellow out and the coffee and cocoa notes start to stand out more, which honestly made me slightly upset since I was almost finished! I suggest pairing this cigar with a big, tall glass of Guinness so you can get all of those darks notes to really float to the surface ;) Enjoy. Picked on 06/28/2022
