Alec Bradley Cigars Tempus Nicaragua Terra Novo
- Size: 5 x 50
- Strength: Medium to Full-Bodied
Nicaraguan tobacco is known to be some of the heartiest tobacco in the world. But, to get the true flavor from the leaves, you need to have patience. With Tempus Nicaragua, I created a stout cigar, well-balanced and flavorful – something an enthusiast would take the time to enjoy and remember. Tempus Nicaragua is a cigar that will wake you up in the morning or enhance your experience after enjoying a great meal.
A great tobacco man once told me- “listen to the tobacco, it will tell you when it’s ready.” When I tried a special estate grown premium tobacco from Trojes, Honduras, it spoke to me, and I listened. The Trojes tobacco delivered flavors and complexities I had never experienced before. The taste was incredible, and the blending process began. Tempus is Latin for time – and it took time to learn, grow, blend and age. Tempus would eventually rate a ‘94’ in Cigar Aficionado, becoming Alec Bradley’s first of many ‘Top 25 Cigars of the Year’. I hope you take the time to enjoy this very special cigar! – Alan Rubin
