Tabak Especial cigars are made available by Drew Estate. You may decide on two variations of wrappers, an extra dark CT broadleaf or a CT shade wrapper that encircle filler leaves from Nicaragua and a Sumatra binder.. Previous to aging, these cigars are impregnated with coffee from Nicaragua.
Love this. It's so good. I smoke all kind of cigars and this is one of the best of all.
I recently caught an interest in trying cigars after getting a set of four EP Carillo sticks in my monthly subscription box. I ve never smoked anything before, so I did a bunch of reading, ended up at famous-smoke, read up on tobaccos and made a list of flavor-infused cigars that sounded good enough to try, or had a good reputation, with the wrappers that sounded interesting to me bought all 5-packs so I could get a good feel for a cigar before making a decision about it . I ve tried a variety of cigars now, mostly flavor-infused, some not. This is one of my favorites, along with the Isla Del Sol Gran Corona and Nub Cafe Macchiato 438. I ve realized pretty quickly I do NOT like CT shade wrappers. They taste bitter to me, even in a sweet-tipped stick. My first introduction to Tabak was a smaller, CT wrapped version of this cigar, and I did not like it. After realizing I do not like CT wrappers, I gave these a try with the dark wrapper, and it made all the difference. It has a nice flavor of tobacco and coffee with a decent bit of sweetness, while having less of an ash flavor than others I ve tried. Even burn, fantastic smell, and a very nice draw. Saw these on Monster last night and decided to grab a box!
I like this cigar. It is presently my go to stick. Smokes great and i like the flavoring with a little rum or Knob Creek.
This cigar is a stunning smoke, period. One of the best I have had...it's right there with my favorites from Padron and Perdomo. The Tabak Especial Negra is more of a cigar smokers cigar than I think the Java Maduro is. The flavour is more complex than the Java, it has more tobacco flavours with just the right amount of coffee. The cigar does not overpower with sweetness or with coffee, in other words...it is well balanced. The construction is quality,the burn even and the taste was wonderful. If you enjoy maduro cigars and black darkroast coffee or a good full bodied lager...try this cigar...'nuff said!
