For fans of medium to full-bodied premium handmade cigars, Tempus will be a favorite. Aged to perfection and top-notch in construction, this dark victor is the pinnacle of the mastery we’ve come to expect from Alec Bradley. Its leathery wrapper, grown right on the border of Honduras and Nicaragua, is bold and seamless—it’s clear this blend got the best of both worlds. The inhale is toasty and peppery with notes of chestnuts over fire, while the exhale adds an element of sweetness for balance that makes this recipe as well-rounded as it is delicious. I couldn’t help but think of its name as I enjoyed the slow-burn and tranquility of this smoke. Tempus translates to “time” in Latin, but this one proves to be timeless.
