Alec Bradley Tempus cigars (Latin for 'TIME,') offers you a choice of a rare, 7-year aged Honduran Criollo '98 Viso or an opulent Mexican San Andrés Maduro wrapper. A perfectly-balanced blend of Nicaraguan & Honduran Criollo '98 & Corojo '99 Ligero and Viso tobaccos make for a smooth, enticingly complex smoke brimming with robust tobacco flavors. Having received rave reviews from the top cigar magazines, Tempus is now a modern classic. Try a box or a 5-pack of these outstanding cigars now.
I bought a box of these in December of 2009 when they were a very limited release. I tore the wrapper off the box and OMG! There are some gorgeous cigars out there, but I do not think a person can appreciate how utterly beautiful this cigar is. So how did it taste? Exotic? Spicy? Full Bodied? Smooth? ALL of the above and then some. I can only imagine what several months of aging will do to this cigar. I was willing to take the risk and not touch another one until now. This will be my after Thanksgiving dinner cigar. The AB Tempus Centuria is worth its given CA rating and I think this Magistri Maduro (original limited release) is well worth 90 rating.
