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!
