Tempus by Alec Bradley was born from over eight years of meticulous tobacco cultivation, patient aging, and tireless blend testing—to say the result was worth it is a vast understatement. Tempus features a dark, oily, toothy Criollo ’98 wrapper from Honduras, with some shapes sporting an even darker San Andres maduro wrapper from Mexico. The binder in both shades is a Honduran Criollo ’98, and the filler is a long-leaf blend from Honduras and Nicaragua. When you light up a Tempus cigar, you’ll know immediately that you’re smoking something of the highest quality. Notes of coffee, black pepper, and earth swirl around a toasty, nutty base with just a hint of dark chocolate sweetness. Our exclusive Tempus Robolo® truly does the blend justice—this squat cigar features a massive 60 ring gauge, which provides a cool draw and huge plumes of flavorful smoke. Cigar Aficionado gave the Tempus a high 94-percent rating, praising its rich flavors as well as its flawless draw and burn. Pick up a box today and find out why!

Tried a Tempus. Had a great draw, before I lit it up, had a smell of dark chocolate and almonds which was very pleasing. After lighting it hit me with some peppery kick which mellowed out to a nice nutty flavor. Be prepared to have a good hour to sit back and enjoy this robolo size. All and all I thought it was a great smoke.
I went into lighting up this cigar with high hopes but the problems started early and continued on throughout. Hopefully not all of these are like this but mine had a giant knot towards the head which I was fussing with the whole time. This made for an extremely tight draw and little smoke. I attempted to work the knot out continuously. Also the cap started coming off so I had to baby it. The cut I made was conservative so I do not believe that was the culprit. On a positive note it did burn pretty evenly all the way down never really needing any attention. Flavor & Complexity: There isn't much to say about this category. For me it was a massively bitter tobacco taste the entire time. There was the slightest change into the last third that smoothed it out and added just a hint of pepper but the change was so slight it's almost not worth mentioning. The smoke left an slightly oily and very bitter aftertaste. Personally, I would give this 5/10 being generous and assuming that not all of these have the same construction issues I had. The flavor did not suit my preferences. JPC-CA
