Cigar Aficionado #5 Cigar of the Year 2017 Rated 94
Tempus, which means "time" in Latin, is one of the most important factors when creating a great cigar. The process requires time for the tobaccos to mature in the fields, time for perfect fermentation, time for aging the "manos" of fermented tobacco and time for the rich tobacco flavors to meld into one once the cigar is rolled. In the cigar making industry and in our lives, time is the one component that is always in demand. Blended with a Honduran wrapper, Honduran binder and a mix of Nicaraguan and Honduran long-fillers, the Alec Bradley Tempus is created to enjoy most of what we have least: TIME!
