The '94' rated classic always delivers!
The #5 overall cigar of 2017, Alec Bradley Tempus is a concoction of tobaccos cultivated since 2001, carefully selected strictly for their incredible quality and blended to create the ideal full-bodied cigar that is as smooth as it is flavorful.
Produced at Fabrica de Tabacos Raices Cubanas in Honduras, Tempus is Latin for “time” which is more than an appropriate title for this blend. When creating Tempus, Alan Rubin spent years in an area along the border of Honduras and Nicaragua where a particular tobacco was growing in extremely small quantities on only a few acres of land. Alan began purchasing the best wrapper from this farm, in small amounts, over a period of several years and finally obtained enough to produce a phenomenal cigar; one that balances strength with flavor, creating a very smooth character.
Alec Bradley Tempus contains a mix of Honduran and Nicaraguan tobaccos, held tightly together by an Indonesian binder. These leaves are then concealed with a Honduran grown Habano wrapper, which adds a bit more strength to the blend along with some spicy undertones. Upon lighting, Tempus produces notes of pepper and earth with some nuances of espresso in the aftertaste. As the cigar burns, hints of spice overwhelm the palate but then mellow towards the nub. This cigar is never overbearing and is incredibly balanced, allowing for a smooth, full-bodied experience with a medium finish. Cigar Aficionado awarded Alec Bradley Tempus a ‘94' rating!

Little Devil — There's a reason for the name. This convienent, 5.5"x44 corona is a firecracker that packs a punch. Full of robust spicy cedary notes, this blend is perfect as a quick after-dinner smoke. And in typical AJ fashion, the blend finishes clean and smooth.
