I have smoke 3 Tabak Espcial Negra's in the past month from my sampler and so far the toro is the best. I'm not a fan of sweetened cigars generally, but I don't find these to be overly sweet as others have stated. It's a very smooth smoke with a very consistent flavor, somewhere between a mild and a medium. I find it to be a pleasant smoke, but a little underwhelming in the flavor department. Typical great construction, appearance, draw and smoke from Drew Estate. In my opinion, they don't make a bad cigar (construction).

The over all of this cigar, the tabak especial toro, is the best coffee cigar I have smoked in a long time. Whatever your company is doing keep it up. You get a good cigar for a good price, thank you.

"Smooth, cool, and delightful"
i bought a box for my son's wedding. I knew nothing about the brand. I simply went on your description, reviews and ratings. I passed them out at the reception and everyone?serious and casual cigar smokers alike?loved them. They were the big hit of the evening. Anyone who likes a good cigar with a rich aftertaste will enjoy this one.

What a nice surprise for an infused cigar. This simply does not taste like an infused cigar, at all. Nothing like say a Heaven or CAO or Acid, YUCK!!!!!. This is like a what.......real cigar! The taste is really smooth in the Toro Negro and there is just a hint of coffee, nothing to knock you down with. Love the shaggy foot and burns very good with a very white ash. This is a very pleasent surprise. I am a big Carlos Torano Exodus smoker but this cigar really surprised me! There I used surprized four times and that is simply put.........what it was to me. I think will order a box. Oh by the way............thbis is the best price on the internet. See, even got in a plug for Famous Smokes! :-)

"Those Bastards Have Done It Again"
I can't believe it. Just when I thought that Drew Estate couldn't possibly improve on the Java, they come out with Tabak Especial coffee infused!! Fresh out of the box it smelled just like the Java...identical. This is a fat round stogie where the Java is a box pressed cigar and the Tabak Especials all come with a rag tip for lighting. It is a little rustic in appearance but makes for an amazingly easy and consistent light. Before lighting, I tasted the cap...just lightly sweetened whereas the Java has a very sweet cap. The big difference is that not only is the cap sweetened but the entire length of the stogie wrapper is sweetened!! This is unlike any other flavored cigar out there for that quality alone. Now the Tabak Especial has a rich beautiful smoke and a sweet sweet sweet aroma that is pleasing to all who smell it. The experience is taken up another notch. If you liked the Java, try this baby. In comparison, this is an A+ and the Java is a B-. Enjoy!
