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. 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!
