In Latin, TEMPUS means TIME.The use of this term by Alec Bradley is deliberate, and intended to signify the importance of time in making one of the finest cigars.Nothing is ever rushed in the creation of these fine and enjoyable smokes.Everything is done methodically, and everything is done right the first time.
Indeed, time is critical to everything in this process.It takes al long time for tobacco to mature in the fields—but then again, that’s really the whole point.It takes time for fermentation—another key ingredient to Alec Bradley flavor--to reach to reach the pinnacle of perfection.It takes time for ingredients to age, and time for all the rich flavors of the tobacco to blend into one.
Experience has taught the experts in this industry, and in the lives that we all live as aficionados of fine cigars, that time is the one thing we always seem to be running short of, and the one thing we strive to be grasping after.
The Alec Bradley Tempus was created to help us all make the most of the time we have—when we kick back at the end of the day to reflect on the time we have spent on this earth, and the time that all hope that we have left.
