The Tabu Cigar line is manufactured by the Eagle Cigar Company in their facility in Esteli, Nicaragua. Eagle, no stranger to the industry, had been manufacturing cigars for over 7 years as a private-label supplier for some of the world's most prestigious cigar companies, when the decision was made to develop a blend for their own line. Hence, Tabu was born. Each Tabu cigar is constructed using five long filler leaves, hand-selected from the finest tobacco grown exclusively in the Nicaraguan regions of Jalapa and Esteli. The line uses a Sumatran binder and highly sought-after shaded Ecuadorian wrapper leaf. The Tabu Cigars are offered in seven sizes including: Belicoso, corona, churchill, lonsdale, robusto, toro, and torpedo. Tabu has been reviewed in the low 90's in Smoke magazine and was rated consistently in the 90's as well by our panel, with the Belicoso featured this month receiving an unusually high average score of 96. We found it to be an exceptionally smooth and flavorful, yet mild smoke. We really liked this cigar very much and are pleased to be able to bring you a superb contrast two exceptional cigars at opposite ends of the strength spectrum. Enjoy!

This is a damn nice little cigar. Aesthetically, a beautiful, silky smooth and inviting wrapper. The draw was perfect, not too easy and not too firm. Look for some floral notes with medium tobacco flavor and some mild nut flavors evident as well. Note a mild, pleasant aroma and a hint of spice in the aftertaste. Overall, a great little smoke, perfect after a light meal or after breakfast. We'd suggest pairing it with your favorite Sauvignon Blanc or a crisp, dry pilsner (assuming you didn't enjoy the smoke after breakfast!).
