Perla del Mar cigars were first conceived in the late 19th Century to honor Cuba’s highly acclaimed cigar heritage. Because Cuba’s rich, fertile soil formerly created the most flavorful cigar tobacco in the world, Cuba was known as the Pearl of the Sea. Now, more than a century later, J.C. Newman Cigar Co. has recreated Perla del Mar, handmade in the J.C. Newman PENSA cigar factory in Estelí, Nicaragua. Today’s Perla del Mar is a rich and flavorful tribute to its original Cuban blend.
Perla del Mar features special, hand-selected, aged binder and long filler tobaccos from three distinct regions in the lush mountains of Nicaragua. This unique blend is combined with a smooth, creamy Ecuadorian Shade or hardy Connecticut Broadleaf wrapper to provide a complex, but balanced, taste. Lastly, Perla del Mar cigars are box pressed to help the natural flavors of its unique tobaccos to marry together and deliver an extremely satisfying smoke.
