Fans of Drew Estate’s Tabak Especial have reason to be excited–the company has announced the release of a new Lonsdale line-extension for the both Dulce and Negra. The release will be part of the Freestyle Live: Special Edition hosted on facebook.com/drewestatecigar on June 11 from 7-9 p.m. EST.
While the Lonsdale cigar size hasn’t historically been popular in the U.S., it’s still popular among many seasoned cigar enthusiasts. Tabak Especial Lonsdale is said to pair well with coffee. Tabak Especial Dulce Lonsdale is 6 3/4 x 44 vitola wrapped in a creamy Ecuadorian Connecticut wrapper and features a lsuh Sumatran binder and rich Nicaraguan fillers. For those that enjoy after-dinner espressos, the Tabak Especial Negra Lonsdale features a dense Maduro wrapper is the perfect smoke after a heavy dessert. Both cigars come in 10-count boxes and are perfect to grab and go. Each will have an MSRP of $85.10 per box and will begin shipping in July.
“I remember back when we created the coffee infused space in like 2002, we used to tell dudes to burn one in the morning with their coffee … and they’d laugh at us … until they actually tried it. Then, they were like ‘wow, these Tabak are straight fire,'” says Jonathan Drew, president and founder of Drew Estate. “So, here we are, 18 years later. We wanted to drop a Tabak Especial that’s really regal, something majestic and upscale, but it had to have a high wrapper component … and this forgotten Lonsdale size was the perfect selection. This royal Lonsdale’s got mad, heavy wrapper game and stupidity level taste, fresh gold elegance dripping all over that burner. Indeed, very proud to say that our gold gilded Lonsdale is pure class and satisfaction. On another note, its somewhat surprising to see just how many hard-core, full-bodied, strong cigar smokers really love our coffee infused selections, especially Tabak Especial. It’s all love.”
