Alec Bradley Cigars Company has a philosophy, and that is to give the smoker an unforgettable experience, and that’s exactly what they do.
These well known and highly rated cigars have been on Cigar Aficionado’s top 25 list for three years running.
Alec Bradley Cigars was founded by Alan Rubin in 1996 after selling his father’s company, All Points Screw Co. Alan used the money he received from the sale to start his own business in the cigar industry. When coming up with a name, Alan remembered his father’s word of advice about picking a name that started in the beginning of the alphabet because it would be in the front of the phone book. So Alan decided to name his company Alec Bradley after his two kids.
He started with the Bogey Stogies which he wanted to target to golfers. In 2007, Alec Bradley Cigars was facing debt and Alan knew that he needed to do something that would set them apart in the premium cigars industry. That is when he launched the Tempus cigar. The Tempus Cigar was really the turn-around for Alec Bradley, and they have had continued success launching many more highly rated cigars.
Only 20% of the cigar rollers at the factory are chosen to make the Tempus brand. Select tobacco from a farm in the Trojes region of Honduras, just north of the border of Nicaragua, and some of the finest tobacco from Jalapa, Nicaragua are used in the making of this cigar. All the cigars are rolled in the traditional Cuban style, tubing each filler tobacco and using a triple cap finished wrapper. The five popular Cuban sizes are packed in boxes of 20 cigars and now a new unique shape in Magistri.
