Tabak Especial is yet another great cigar produced by the makers of the ACID brand. Well balanced, perfectly blended and infused to perfection, this blend is a must try for all fans of Drew Estate.
Drew Estate has become the standard when searching for infused cigars. The process they use to create their exotic flavors and aromas has never been duplicated. The tobaccos used for each blend are uniquely different from one another, with their attention to detail and quality control being flawless. Founded by Jonathan Drew, Drew Estate is currently a top manufacturer of Nicaraguan cigars and has expanded beyond strictly unique tobaccos and infusions into traditional blends.
Filled with a flavorful concoction Nicaraguan, long leaf tobaccos, Tabak Especial is simply an excellently blended hand-made. It offers crisp flavors of earth and cedar, infused with powerful nuances of espresso and cocoa to create an incredibly rich, complex flavor only noticeable in an infused blend by Drew Estate. The burn, quality of product, and construction are all top notch. The blend is medium-bodied, with almost every size offering a “shaggy foot,” which allows the flavors of the filler and binder tobaccos to be tasted separately from the wrapper. This blend is available in a smooth and silky Connecticut or a dark and rich Maduro wrapper. Tabak Especial is another welcomed, well received addition to the Drew Estate family of brands.
I never do this, but I reached for an "infused" cigar the other day; Tabak Especial Red Eye, a shot of espresso in a cigar. I paired it with a Pumpkin beer called "Pumking." I can't believe it, but it was an excellent combo! Red Eye has a light sweetness that quickly fades as the bittersweet coffee-chocolate combo intensifies on the finish.
