Alec Bradley Tempus
Latin for “Time”, the Alec Bradley Tempus is homage to the amount of hours a true cigar craftsman and aficionado dedicates to his craft. Whether the rollers who spend countless hours behind the scenes, or the enthusiasts who spend a lifetime enjoying the art, Alan Rubin felt it was time to honor time spent on cigars. The Alec Bradley Tempus cigar is hand rolled from an expertly aged blend of Honduran and Nicaraguan long leaf-fillers grown and cultivated from Cuban seeds, which is then held together by a rich Habano wrapper. Notes of sweet molasses, leather, roasted nuts, and toasted wood are accompanied by a mild, peppery smoke, which successfully adds an intriguing complexity. Alan Rubin uses time – aging, perfecting, blending – as the main ingredient in all his cigars, but it truly shines through as soon as you light up the Tempus. The critics agree; this cigar was given a 94 rating from renowned publication Cigar Insider.
