May 26, 2023

One of the most popular handmade premium cigars on the market, the Alec Bradley Tempus Natural is a medium-bodied blend that has garnered high marks from many reviewers. This is one of the brand’s best releases to date and a great choice for those looking to enjoy something mellow with a little bit of kick to it. The cigar is beautifully crafted and features an even burn from start to finish, something that’s hard to find in a Figurado. The Tempus Natural also offers top-notch flavors and an exceptional aroma.

The Tempus Nicaragua made its debut at the 2015 IPCPR trade show and has been available in a variety of sizes since. This line from the company that’s famous for its incredibly rich and flavorful flavors is full of Nicaraguan and Honduran tobaccos. This particular blend is wrapped in a dark brown, smooth and zesty Habano wrapper sourced from a single field along the border of Honduras and Nicaragua.

Taking its name from the Latin word for “time,” this blend is all about patience. It’s a masterfully crafted premium cigar that showcases the benefits of carefully aged and perfectly chosen ingredients. A 94-rating from Cigar Aficionado and a spot in their Top 25 of the year backs this cigar as one of Alec Bradley’s finest.

Tempus uses a complex combination of Honduran and Nicaraguan long fillers bunched together under a hearty Honduran binder. This is then covered with a smooth and earthy reddish Honduran Criollo wrapper sourced from a single farm in the Trojes region of Honduras. This makes for a well-balanced cigar that’s loaded with rich, hearty espresso and earth flavors complimented by dashes of spice in the finish.
