Connecticut shade-grown wrappers are among the priciest leaves available, which explains why so many of the cigars made with first-quality Connecticut are so pricey. Of course, there are plenty of inexpensive cigars with lower-tier shade-grown wrappers, but you can identify the lack of quality easily. So what do you do when you want a premium cigar that's smooth and creamy without the sky-high price? Simple - grab some La Perla Habana White Pearls.
Outside is a silky Ecuadorian Connecticut Shade wrapper, golden in hue and gorgeous. An Ecuadorian Sumatra binder adds some creamy sweetness and the Honduran and Nicaraguan long-fillers add enough flavor and complexity to make White Pearl exceptionally tasty while being super-smooth. Try one side-by-side with one of those $10 to $15 Connecticuts and you'll make the switch immediately.
