Jan 15th 2012 - Tabak Especial Red Eye

Today brings us the Tabak Especial Red Eye in it's only offering a 4.5x54 vitola. Drew Estate is known for their infused cigars and more recently their subculture line. The Tabak Especial line is one of their infused lines that combines coffee with premium cigars. The Red Eye was introduced to be the espresso version. It features triple the amount of ligero used in the original Tabak Especial cigars. It features all Nicaraguan tobaccos. It has great flavor notes of coffee, espresso and a chocolaty sweetness that makes this cigar fantastic. I chose this to pay honor to the 3rd anniversary of US Airways Flight 1549's landing in the Hudson River. If not for the courageous actions of the flight crew this could have been a major tragedy. The flight landed in the Hudson River after striking a flock of birds shortly after takeoff. The successful landing saved the lives of all on board the plane.
