How do you follow up the success of cigars like Tempus and Tempus Maduro? If you're Alan Rubin, you combine some of the finest tobaccos that Nicaragua has to offer, and you call it Alec Bradlet Tempus Nicaragua.
It all starts with a nut-brown wrapper grown in Nicaragua's Jalapa Valley. This gorgeous capa is draped over a double binder and Cuban-seed long-fillers, also from Nicaragua's three major growing regions - Esteli, Condega and Jalapa. Somehow they stuck a beautiful balance that allows this cigar to be medium in body, but rich in flavor. Lavish notes of cedar and leather are the anchor of the profile, with spices, pepper and a touch a dark fruit rounding it out. Alec Bradley Tempus Nicaragua is sure to find a 90-rated place of honor in your humidor.
