ALEC BRADLEY TEMPUS
WRAPPER: Honduras BINDER: Honduras FILLER: Honduras / Nicaragua
Alec Bradley created the line Tempus (meaning "time" in Latin) because time is one of the most important factors in crafting a cigar—and also for smoking one, as it is often what we have very little of. Only 20 percent of the best cigar rollers at the Raices Cubanas factory in Honduras are chosen to be a part of the cigarmaking process, which is in the traditional Cuban style, tubing each filler tobacco and using a triple-cap-finished wrapper. These beauties are rich and leathery with smooth, medium-to-full-bodied flavors, hints of toasted nuts, and a long, peppery finish.
