There are a few gems out there as far as cigar deals go, and this just might be one of the best. Alec Bradley Tempus Fumas Robusto Criollo (5" x 50) cigars are made with short-filler scraps that were leftover from the construction of the more expensive long-filler Tempus. You get the same quality leaf, just smaller pieces wrapped in a high-quality Criollo wrapper.
Was expecting a little Tempus but nothing. As if they just used the name to draw you in. I love the Tempus and was so very disappointed. It is not a bad cigar, just okay. I can do a lot better with a $1.75. There's nothing bad with how it smoked. Good construction, burn, and smoke, just not even closely related to the Tempus.
