Spotlight Brand: Drew Estate Tabak Especial

Tabak Especial from Drew Estate

Sip this.

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.

Q & A: Temporary Storage?

Q.
I’m giving away cigars as gifts. How should I temporarily store them during the holiday season?

A.
The best and recommended method for storing cigars is through the use of a humidor. Most humidors are made with Spanish Cedar, which efficiently retains and releases moisture while maintaining 70% humidity – the ideal climate for cigar storage. However, when in search for a temporary method for keeping your cigars “fresh,” the best solutions tend to be zip-lock bags and/or Tupperware containers. Simply leave a wet paper towel (dampened with Distilled water) in a Tupperware container or in a zip-lock bag with your cigars. Make sure you keep the cigars from coming in direct contact with the towel or any excess water, for this will damage the sticks.
