Due to licensing reasons Kahlua has been discontinued, but Drew Estate has introduced Tabak Especial as the official replacement. The Tabak's come in 2 shades, the Negra (darker) and the Dulce (lighter), which is like the Kahlua.
Tabak Especial is the culmination of Drew Estate taking the art of blending coffee and cigars to new heights. Slowly infusing rich tobaccos with the finest Fair Trade harvested coffees from the fertile mountains of Nicaragua into the Tabak Especial line, they have created a smoking experience that is pure tobacco velvet upon the palate with the perfect nuance of lucious espresso. The combination results in pleasing, yet not overpowering flavors of coffee beans and milk chocolate mixed with savory sweetness and a wonderful aroma.
The Tabak Especial line of cigars by Drew Estate is designed as a “bridge” between smokers who are used to infused cigars – such as Drew Estate's Acid – and traditional cigars which are not infused, such as their Chateau Real line. The Tabak Especial has an extra-dark Connecticut Broadleaf wrapper that’s cured for two years, plus a Sumatra binder and Nicaraguan Criollo filler leaves for a medium bodied taste that is luscious with chocolate and coffee overtones.
For those of you who miss the Kahlua brand, the Tabak Especial is the replacement cigar - nearly identical in flavor.
