Alec Bradley Tempus Magistri Maduro cigars are a special release limited to only 750 boxes. This box is one of only 20 signed by AB Cigars prez Alan Rubin. The wrapper is a rare Mexican San Andres that adds a marvelous depth to this full-bodied, complex blend. A MUST-HAVE for cigar collectors!
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.
