Many of Alec Bradley’s cigars are hit and miss. Their line up boasts some of the most highly rated cigars on the market, but like many things there is always bad with the good. Unfortunately the Tempus Natural falls on the failure side of the Spectrum. There was just too many challenges with relighting and overall construction that simply ruined the experience of the samples smoked. It was clear however, that there were undertones of great flavors in this cigar, but again too many corrections masked what we were really trying to expose in this cigar. Coming in at $8.50 each we feel this cigar just simply isn't worth the price. There are too many good sticks on the market to be spending money on something that lacks sustainable quality.
Hot Ticket Score
You can get your hands on this cigar for just around $8.00 which makes it a pretty damn good deal. There isn’t anything challenging about this cigar, so in terms of recommendation, but really feel there are some out there that may find this cigar to not be in their wheelhouse. If you do grab one, do yourself a favor… Drink it in the morning with a good cup of coffee. You won't regret it.
As a company we’ve had our ups and downs, but we are proud of the fact that many have come to love and enjoy our cigars. I could sit here and tell you things like “our brand is synonymous with quality” and “we make the best cigars”, etcetera, but the reality is that we just want to make cigars that people can enjoy. The part of our history that really makes us who we are today comes down to a 10-second encounter that changed everything.
