Excellent in every phase....I still can’t believe the great taste of the Tabek coffee smokes...
If you enjoy smoking Drew Estate cigars, especially the Tabak Especial line, then this is the cigar for you. I have ordered dozens of 5 Packs and boxes of Robusto and Toro Dulces from FSS. The draw on the Belicoso is much more even. You NEVER get an uneven burn, and it NEVER canoes, provided that you just cut it evenly. Once in a great while, you will encounter that problem with the Robusto and the Toro, and they smoke far better if you use a punch rather than a cutter. You don't need a punch for the Belicoso since it is a torpedo. Otherwise, it's still the same great cigar that you have come to know and love. Sweet and delicious, and IMO, it isthe best of the best of the Drew Estate line. They may cost a bit more, but they are definitely worth the extra dough. Go for it!
A short while ago I purchased a sampler here which contained a different brand flavored cigar. This first brand of flavoredcigars tasted & smoked much better than I expected so I ordered a box of twenty. As neared the end of this box I thought I would try a couple of other flavored cigars so I ordered a five pack of these Tabak Especial Belicosos. What a pleasant surprise these turned out to be. They smoke smoothly and taste great, just as good as the Macanudos and the Cohibas I have been smoking. Do bear in mind that these belicosos are milde cigars so keep that in mind you like medium to full or full bodied cigars exclusively. I am already submitting my order for more Tabak Especials. They are that good.
The first time I tried the Tabak cigar was in a Rocky Patel sampler I had about a year ago. I wasn't expecting the flavor that came out of it, as I've never been much on flavored type cigars. Most flavored cigars I've had were from a store or tobacco shop in my area. I was pleasantly surprised. It doesn't have a sickening taste or over powering flavor. It's a bit sweet for my tastes, maybe because I got the Belicoso Dulce, but nevertheless, it's still a good cigar. I bought a box of these, because of my experience with them from the Rocky Patel sampler and I've had one every morning, with a cup of coffee since. Fantastic Aroma, good flavor, a bit sweet, but it mellows out and settles when you get about half way down; not to mention it's a good compliment to a cup of coffee. I would recommend these whole heartedly. An outstanding cigar. Thank you Famous
