Tabak Especial Robusto Negra Cigar by Drew Estate

You know me, normally I'm not much of an infused cigar fan, but this Tabak Especial Robusto Negra Cigar by Drew Estate, is different than most. Before these cigars are aged, they're infused with Nicaraguan coffee. 

With dual bands over an oily, dark Maduro colored Connecticut wrapper and a shaggy foot, this cigar looks great. The cigar has seamless construction, a triple cap, and there's some fine tooth to the nearly vein free wrapper. 

Just holding this cigar in your hand, you can smell the coffee aromas. Checking the free draw there are notes of toasted tobacco and lots of coffee. The wrapper leaves a big sweetness on the lips giving the impression it's been dipped in sugar.

Once the shaggy foot is burning, the Tabak Especial produces large mouthfuls of smoke with strong notes of toasted tobacco, coffee and sugar. As the razor sharp burn line moves up the body other flavors join in that complement the coffee. There are nuances of spiced rum, anise and some sweet black cherry toward the final third. I thought this flavor mix, although very sweet, created a really pleasant smoking experience.

The cigar draws to an end after fifty minutes with a full bodied mix reminding me of spiced rum, coffee and toasted tobacco. 

With a nice mix of flavors, top of the line construction and a great burn, the Tabak Especial Robusto Negra Cigar by Drew Estate is a great infused cigar. You can find these online at Famous-smoke.com in 5 packs or boxes of 24. Don't be afraid to give this flavorful cigar a try.
