LPH Grand Pearl - anyone tried it?

If so, how was it??
The description sounds good, and the 1997 CT wrapper is enticing ... how are the flavors on this one?

I've enjoyed other LPHs, construction always seems to be good -- but I couldn't dig up much else on these, Google only offered a couple results and it wasn't what I wanted.

    No one, huh? I'm curious about this one too, but I'm hesitant to pull the trigger on a more pricey entry from a budget company.

    Agreed Ken. This one sounds good, but then again the descriptions make the Gurkha's on here sound good, LOL.

    Yea... But Gurkhas are like prom night.... If you can wait a bit it might be worth it.

    Smoked the one from the COTM the other night. Didn't leave it in the humidor long enough, but I enjoyed it. I got more taste of cream, and vanilla, than I've ever had from any other cigar. I think if you like Connecticuts, you'll like it. Pricey though, isn't it?

    I might have to give this a try, I really enjoy flavorful connies. IDK if I'd call it pricey, I think they list it at 10 for a single robusto, but the tin of 10 is 60, so 6 each isn't pricey IMO (if they're good).

    A BOTL, who's taste I absolutely trust, smoked one a while back. His thoughts were: "OK Connie, nothing special", "Glad I didn't buy it", and "Wouldn't buy, even on sale".

    Single price of $10 for an LPH, IMO is too pricy. 6 isn't too bad though.....

    But that's more like it, 4-ish is what I'd expect to pay for an LPH....

    Exactly why I'd be hesitant to pay MSRP for them .... scares me off a little bit hearing this, but if I can get a few for $4ish/stick I'll probably still give it a shot. Wonder if they'd get any better with some time in the humidor too....
