All around good smokes.
I bought these because I'm a fan of the Tabak Especial brand, while I'm not a major fan of the con Leche, I was presently surprised by the CAO Moontrance. Definitely a cigar I'd order again.

Take me to the moon for cigars and coffee!
If you are a fan of infused cigars, the Tabak Especial Café con Leche is the perfect blend. With two distinct wrappers, a smooth flavor, and a sweet aroma, the Café con Leche has become my favorite go to cigar to smoke with my morning coffee. A five pack alone of these bad boys is more than what I paid for the combination. CAO's Moontrance is that cherry on top that makes the package a killer deal. And to top everything off, I am a deployed United States Marine and CI was able to deliver all the way out to me in PB nowhere.

The Tabak cafes are very flavorful and smoke wonderful and will hold a long ash
CAO Moontrace although they have a wonderful flavor they are rolled a little too tight for me which makes the not burn well

CAO flavored sampler
I recently purchased two samplers with the flavored cigars and upon arrival of the smokes I was very disappointed in the size of the cigars. The Moon trance I smoked recently was twice the size. Would not order again.

Great Deal , Wonderful Cigars

Best combo hands down!
This is by far the best combo ever! They are my two favorite cigars out there. The cafe con Leche has been my long standing favorite. It is delicious, classy, and performs like a champ. I was new to the moontrance when ordering this for the first time. It was amazing and is now my second favorite cigar. It's perfect for a quick smoke. The taste and aroma is unbeatable. If CI ever discontinues this combo I think I would be lost. A few people commented on "tight draw" with the moontrance. After smoking 20 of them I can honestly say I did not have one single issue. A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!!!

moontrance are very unappealing
Tabak especial are always tasty, can't say as much about the moontrance. The aroma before smoking is overwhelming, and the flavor leaves much to be desired,

Great smooth smoke
I got the tabak/moontrance combo simply because as I saw it, the moontrance were free. Absolutely loved the Tabak ECL. Smooth smoke with a light taste of coffee infused. Long lasting and good ashe. I look forward to trying others in the Tabak family. I am a Drew Estate fan all the way. The moontrance was fine but I only had one. I gave the others to female cigar smokers who really enjoyed them

Great cigars at a great price
I usually like the none sweet ones but these two cigars taste really good. Not to mention all the people around you love the aroma. Especially at the casino's alot of people ask what kind am I smoking I let them know

Tabak good, Moontrance bad
I liked the Tabak Especials they were very mellow and kept nice partially sweet taste throughout the entire cigar. However the Moontrance cigars are not very good. Their taste is good at first but it quickly dies out after the first third and then become bland. For the price it's like getting the Moontrances for free but why waste the space in the humidor?

These cigars are among my
These cigars are among my favorites. The tabak cafe con leche being a flavored cigar is an excellent cigar but not too overpowering as far as the flavor adn sweetness. Although a bit pricey for an everyday cigar its still one of the cigars I look forward to smoking.

Tabak cafe con leche and moon trance
i love the cafe con leche cigars they have a smooth and consistent draw, the moontrance also have a great taste but do not burn consistently. Some of the moontrance cigars have to be punch through because they are wrap too tight. Overall both cigars are great buys if you prefer a flavored cigar and I do!

Great Smoke
I enjoyed this cigar as well as my sons. Keep wrapping.
Customer Testimonials
Very pleased with this purchase. Picked this up solely for the Cafe con Leche as it is one of my favorite sticks. It just happened to come with the Moontrance. I was very skeptical about the Moontrance based on many reviews that voice concerns about a tight draw. Roasted one today and absolutely loved it! Draw was just fine. The aroma of the stick itself is to die for. The first half of the stick was delicious and full of flavor. The second half died down to a more tobacco flavor. All around satisfied with this purchase.
If you enjoy infused cigars, the Tabaks are perfect. The Moontrance have a nice aroma, but I couldn't smoke a couple of them because the tobacco was poorly packed and the burn was terrible.
This is combo is off the chain; I'm a witness. Thank you CI!!!
My cousin introduced me to the Tabak and now it's a regular in my humidor. The Moontrance is simply a freebie, not sure I would had chosen one of these. I'll give the CAO a few months in the humi and see if that helps. Don't get me wrong, it's not a bad stick at all. Again, for the price it was well worth it.
I absolutely adore the Tabak Café con Leche! One of my favorites.
Wow! A good price and good selection. I bought it as a gift to the guys working with me. They are noobies on smoking cigars, and we had a spectacular time smoking them. The Tabak Cigar is one on my top 10 list and CAO never disappoints me. Good Deal. I recommend it without doubt.
I got a CAO Moontrance in the CAO flavor sampler. By far my favorite of the pack. Tastes like toasted coconut.
Cafe con Leche was great smoke! CAO was not bad for being free!
Moontrance is not my cup of tea, but the Tabak is right up my alley. For the price, I couldn't resist this deal and had a chance to try the Moontrance along the way basically for free.
A sweet change from the norm is good from time to time. Nice smoke.
The Cafe con Leche is one of my favorite smokes. Having a cup of coffee with it enhances it even more. Smooth creamy smoke with every puff. Some tips are sweeter than others.
If you like flavored cigars look no further. All 10 cigars were flawless and tasted great!
I really enjoyed these sticks. So far, I've only sampled one of each, but they were both great smokes. The Moontrance has a some what tight draw, with lots of creamy smoke. The flavor was consistent throughout, sweet on the draw, then turning over to a bourbon type flavor. The Cafe con Leche I had was fantastic. Sweet cocoa, and coffee flavors throughout. The flavors become really deep when you enter the Maduro wrapper at the end. I didn't want it to end. I'm looking forward to enjoying the rest of these two.
Not a bad combo at all I love the tabak line... however moontrance is definitely not my fav. I would love to see moontrance replaced with java by drew estates, or when it comes out nub cafe.
Really great combo! Tabak's Café con Leche have always been a personal favorite, however I was pleasantly surprised by CAO's Moontrance! Worth every penny!
Can't beat the Tabak Especial Cafe con Leche for a great smoke. This package offers essentially free CAO Moontrance cigars (good thing) however I'll save those for my non-cigar smoking buddies who won't know any better because I sure do.
I order this combo because I really enjoyed the CAO Moontrance and a buddy told me to try the Cafe con Leche. I have absolutely no regrets with this purchase. This is by far the best combo pack I have bought and will continue to buy it as long as it is available. I am currently deployed to Afghanistan and have not had any problems with keeping these cigars fresh. The drag on both of them is smooth and perfect, making for a great smoke. I encourage anyone to purchase this order. It is well worth the smoke and you can't beat the price.
I ordered this combo pack after smoking the Tabak Especial Red Eye, which I thoroughly enjoyed. Unfortunately the Café con Leche failed to achieve even the slightest hint of coffee. While I feel it missed the mark it still smoked well and if you are a fan of Acid cigars, you will enjoy this. The CAO Moontrance was awful. Whatever “flavor” CAO was attempting to achieve was completely lost on me and after only smoking ¼ of the cigar I put it out and was left with a bad taste in my mouth.
I am a huge fan of the entire Tabak Especial Line but my favorite is by far the Cafe Con Leche. I love the taste and aroma of the Moontrance but they are always hard to draw. I have tried various sizes and all are hard to draw. I usually run a skewer down the middle of them and smoke away.
I've smoked Tabak Especial Café Con Leche in the past, it's a very good tasting cigar, smokes beautiful. CAO Moontrance is okay, not as good as the Café Con Leche, but still smokes good, it has a cinnamon taste in it. I felt that for the price you're getting the Moontrance cigars free, so there's really no room for complaining.
While the Cafe con Leches were a sweet treat and CAO had a great aroma, I have concluded that sweet tobacco is not for me. For a beginner cigar smoker, infused cigars are a good way to start.
I enjoyed both smokes. The CAO was a little hard to draw but I figured it was due to the fact that all I had to punch it with was a little plastic wedge and no cutter or punch. After a while, I rolled the end between my thumb and finger and it broke up the knot and all was well with the world. Both very mild and totally enjoyable. I plan to buy more.
Love the cafe con leche, was happy to try the moon trance pretty surprised on the flavor.
I was a huge fan of the CAO Moontrance until this combination package. I am not sure if a lesser quality batch was used; however, I had three cigars in a row that could not draw. Even though I am currently deployed to a outlying base in Afghanistan, I have been able to maintain the cigars at the appropriate humidification and temperature. I am disappointed and will not purchase the CAO Moontrance was a favorite I added to my wish list.
