The Alec Bradley Tempus is sophistication incarnate. The Tempus line of cigars are concocted with tobaccos that are carefully chosen and aged so that you get to experience a unique smoke endowed with a motley of flavors. It all started when Alan Rubin, the founder of the Alec Bradley company, was visiting Honduras and Nicaragua. On a small farm located along the Nicaraguan and Honduran borders, he saw a special tobacco plant that was being grown in limited quantities. Rubin started to buy this one-of-a-kind tobacco, and slowly built up a stock with which he could make fantastic wrappers for a special cigar.
The filler blend of the Tempus comprises Honduran Criollo and Nicaraguan tobaccos. The binders are Honduran Criollo and Indonesian Embetunar tobaccos. Each part of this cigar is made using the most exquisite materials that have been aged for just the right period of time, justifying the Tempus name. The Alec Bradley Tempus cigar looks fantastic due to its smooth, chocolate-colored wrapper that has barely discernible veins.
