Drew Estate SMALL CIGAR TINS Tabak Especial Cafecita Negra
In cigars, a common flavor note is coffee, so it's no surprise that a company like Drew Estate would go all in and style a cigar as a "Cafecita" (Spanish for "coffee"). This one is actually "cafecita negra," or "black coffee," just so you know what you're in for. But let's get to the point: would you want to sip on one cup of coffee for hours on end? That doesn't sound too appetizing, even if your mug is sitting on some kind of single-mug warmer. A much better time frame for coffee is ten, maybe twenty minutes.
With Drew Estate's Tabak Especial Cafecita Negra, that just what you're in for. It's a nice little smoke that's perfect for a short break. This also makes it a nice starter for someone newer to the world of cigars. No commitment necessary. It's not a demanding cigar, you know?
The flavors are fairly reliable. They're what you'd expect: chocolate, coffee, a bit of spice. It's an obvious paring with either coffee, chocolate, or a nice porter if you want something that doesn't provide too much contrast. The tin is also a darn good looking. Whoever they have working the art at Drew Estates is doing a killer job!
