Rafael González Perlas - Out in Spain

The Perlas is a new addition to the Rafael Gonzalez range. Currently only available in Spain, the Perlas has been available since November 2011.

The Rafael González brand always seems to be the long forgotten brand in the Cuban Cigar range. Every so many years, a vitola of the brand is discontinued, leaving today, only two sizes, the Petit Corona and Panatelas Extras.

However, in 2011 it was announced that a new vitola would be added to the Rafael González portfolio. The Perlas, is a small, short smoke.

Name Brand Vitola
Perlas Rafael González Petit Corona - 40 x 4.0"

I haven't seen an image of one myself as of yet, however I know it exists, as it has been freely available in Spain since last November. I am not sure of the reason why Habanos SA decided to release this Cigar in Spain first, it's most probably due to market research that indicates that this size and marquee sell well in the country.

If anyone has tried the Rafael González Perlas, or know where I can easily source a box, please email me at cigars@stevegriff.com.
