The Rafael Gonzalez Perla was recently introduced to the UK in packs of 5 and has proved to be a very popular addition. The size lends itself perfectly for the quick alfresco lunchtime or pre-dinner smoke and the light blend also makes it ideal for daytime and novice smokers. Now available in boxes of 25, the Rafael Gonzalez Perla is only one of three Habanos that are currently available in the "Perla" size (4"x 40). The other remaining two are Cohiba Siglo I and Montecristo No.5.

Outstanding smoke!! Not a long smoke around 20 min just right for a coffee brake, little fire cracker loads of flavour nice even burn and stacks up well will definitely be buying some of these again!

I really enjoyed this cigar. It had plenty of smoke, burned evenly all the way down and tasted great. I've not smoked any really expensive cigars as yet but this one too me seems like a bargains at this price.

I am reviewing this again because I believe I previously had a bad cigar which CGars kindly replaced for me. This was a really pleasant smoke. Nice and mild with a creamy taste and nice even burn. For the price this is an excellent little cigar.

Rather disappointed with this. It was a very tight draw and produced very little smoke. It burned very unevenly and went out towards the end. By no means unpleasant and at times was a nice, mild smoke, but overall not great.

Its early evening, and my cigar of choice is the Rafael Gonzalez Perlas at 4 inches in length and 42 ring gauge, it promises to be a 30-40 minute smoke, and my hopes are high for this little fella, based on other reviews. So, time to settle down in the smoking salon (i.e. garage), pop Dark Side of The Moon onto the stereo and settle back with the Rafa and a nice glass of rum. The Rafas wrapper speaks to me flawless and rich I can hardly wait to get stuck into this gem of a cigar. The initial aroma is subtle and enticing. The pre-light draw is not the easiest Ive had, but not bad by any means, and it hints at coffee and hay. The cigar lights easily and evenly, and that first breath is a delight almost immediately I get coffee and creaminess that herald a light and tranquil smoke. The draw is a little on the heavy side, but it certainly wont cause any brain damage, and Im getting plenty of smoke. The taste of the Rafa is developing nicely its rounding out and drifting from a light to a medium bodied smoke, and Im getting a lovely bitter chocolate flavour. The dense cylinder of white-grey ash is holding nicely, and the burn is beautifully even, with no touching up necessary. Im a third of the way through the smoke and I realise, as a delicious woody aspect begins to develop to join the creaminess and chocolate, that time is likely to be my only problem - I dont want this tremendous little cigar to end! We are getting on for twenty-five minutes, and we have the first ash drop. The Rafas glowing heart is revealed, and the first draw subsequent to the drop brings a delightfully intense tingle of pepperiness to the experience. The second half of the Rafa proves to be as consistent as the first no great complexity, just a lovely gentle smoke with enough variation to keep the palate interested. Its a real shame when I finally have to say goodbye to it, fingertips burning and less than an inch left thank goodness I have another four in the humidor! This cigar eclipses most other small vitolas Ive experienced, holds its own against the Montecristo No.5, and for me represents real value for money in a small Cuban.
