Alec Bradley Tempus Maduro

For a limited time, enjoy Free Shipping on any box purchase on this page.

A darker, richer Tempus cigar.

Take the 94-rated Tempus, add a maduro wrapper into the equation, and come out on top with another winning blend. If only everything were that easy. But for Alan Rubin of Alec Bradley, the wind is always at his back.

Tempus Maduro cigars combine the same rich filler blend as the original Tempus, now paired with a San Andres maduro wrapper. This wrapper leaf is dark and luscious, specially fermented using an old Cuban technique. The result is a rich, full-flavored smoke that's smooth and balanced throughout. Notes of coffee, cocoa, pepper, cedar, and a slightly sweet finish characterize this complex new addition to the Alec Bradley line up.

Customer Reviews of “Alec Bradley Tempus Maduro”
Not has good as the regular Habano wrapped TEMPUS line, but still a very good maduro cigar. Definitely worth a try.
RH of Coraopolis, PA
I tried the Tempus Habano and it was tasty . So , when I saw the Maduro on the daily deal I had try it. I actually talked my girl into buying 10 of them, and that makes it a sweet deal all the way around for me . I was suprised how well the wrapper and fillers flavor meld together . You'll just have to try one , or 10 and see . They are good !! Kinda reminds me of a Padron !!!

Tempus Quadrum was not Alec Bradley quality that I know and love. In fact the wrapper leaf was powder coated for color.
LH of Malverne, NY
As soon as I lit my firsts Tempus Maduro I felt in love with it. Smooth and very flavorful, coating the palate with nice chewy flavors. I try it with an espresso, a dark chocolate and a glass of single malt scotch and I'm impressed by the good pairing it was with each. A 90 rated at least!
MF of Rincon, PR
I am pleased to be one of the first to review this cigar. This review was done on December 13, 2010. I received these from a Joe's Daily Deal and the first smoked was right out of the package. Please remember that! First off, the light up flavor was fantastic. I can't discern the flavors that many people can but it was absolutely fantastic. The cigar itself was soft but that should improve with age. The burn was fairly even and I am sure that it will be excellent after aging. A wonderful full flavored chocolate smoke. I will wait to see if they are as good as the original. Humidor time will be required for a side by side comparison. Smoke on everyone. BUY SOME, YOU WON'T BE DISAPPOINTED!!!

Just Finished my first one. Just an awesome cigar. Chocolate and coffee. Smelled so damn good it made my pregnant neighbor horny!!! Her husband, needless to say, is a fan now too ;)!!! Only one small problem. There was a small pin hole in the wrapper, causing the cherry to tunnel away from it. After the 1st ash ( which was about 1 inch) it burned back to even by itself. That alone is a feat. But every cigar is a snowflake. Draw was semi-tight but the volume of delicious smoke was tremendous. Will repeat purchase and recommend to others.

The Alec Bradley Tempus Maduro Terra Nova Robusto is a darkly wrapped, creamy smooth example of this companies penchant for delivering superior blends & exotic tobaccos consistently. Another winner in a stable full of 90+ rated gems. Complex & eventful throughout, the Terra Nova is among my favorite Maduro cigars. Well worth a try, this is a worthy recreation of the original 94 rated Tempus.

I enjoy trying cigars that are new to me. I got two of the box pressed maduros in a sampler. my pre light draw was so open that I feared a problem. I was wrong. these are something special. Tons of thick smoke and a great cigar experience. Definitely going on my "to buy next" list.
KA of BOONVILLE, IN
1 of my top 2 favorites. Very smooth on the retro-hale, nice smoke plumes, creamy taste. Very light on the pepper side; Just enough to let u know this is a mans cigar. I prefer Maduro's. This and CAO Brazillias are my favorite. I highly recommend and thank Cigars international for the hookup. Be blessed.
AB of Hampton, VA
Beautiful looking and tasting cigar. Mexican maduro wrappers rock !!
RZ of Barto, PA
A nice looking cigar (Quadrum) that is bland, boring and monotonous....
MB of Whitehall, PA
....Got a perfect cut from my CC perfect cutter. Roasted roughly 30 seconds at 45-degree angle with my trusted butane Xikar torch....For the THIRD time in a row now these ABs have provided nothing but displeasure and frustration....It didn't used to be this way. I have multiple coolidors and desk humidors ranging from 60-70 RH. All use heartfelt beads with distilled water and digi hygros. But for the LIFE OF ME, I can't get these to burn or taste right... OTT or even resting for a year+. And it's not just CI's merch... my local B&M's ABs are just as disastrous. As a BOTL, I say unto my fellow BOTLs, maybe don't pull the trigger on a box or fiver right now. I'm a lover of CI and would normally not try to dissuade someone from purchasing sticks unless I truly felt there were real issues at hand. Maybe grab a single at your local B&M or offer up a trade from a BOTL forum buddy to see if you get any of the issues me and a few of my buddies are experiencing. Hopefully this is a temporary issue and not indicative of things to come. I'll check in on this page and review over the next few months if anyone has any similar issues they'd like to share or discuss....
DF of Madison, WI
Yes. The issue is out there & needs to be addressed. Alec Bradley, purveyor of delicious, highly rated blends, can barely deliver a stick that doesn't have at least minor burn issues... I am gnawing on a Tempus Maduro Terra Nova as I write this & will report any issues encountered.... No dry boxing before lighting, the Terra Nova has been stored at 70% humidity for about 8 months. 15 minutes in & the commonly seen underburn begins. If it continues, I will need to put flame to the unburned wrapper. Any burn issues detract from the overall experience. Tempus Maduro, by the way, is a delicious blend, chock full of black tobacco, coffee, bitter chocolate & caramel. Medium/full, spicy, just delightful. Fast toking has corrected the underburn, at least for the time being. I am a big Alec Bradley fan. I hope that these burn irregularities can be overcome.... Tempus Maduro Terra Nova performs fairly well the remainder of the smoke. Still, it caused some concern at the beginning & that is after being warehoused for a long, long time.... Still, I really like most of AB's blends, Tempus Maduro is no exception. 91/100 One of the best Maduro's anywhere.
BB of LOVELAND, OH
Received one of these in a "taste of Alec Bradley sampler". I have been wanting to try one for a while now. The Prensado is one of my favorite smokes... And now the Tempus Maduro is on that list too. It was a little milder than I was expecting, though the flavors that came out were very pleasing. And the aroma was surpurb! My only issues where that the ash flowered often, and.... Anything wet that touches it gets a brown film, fingers lips, etc. Regardless it was an enjoyable cigar.

Alec Bradley Tempus Maduro

Posted by Steve R

I’ve long been a fan of Alec Bradley Tempus. This 94-rated stud is damn tasty and always well-made. Especially the Quadrum size, which sits heavy in the hand and comes jam-packed with delicious tobaccos. I just received a Tempus Maduro in this very same size: 5.5”x55 Quadrum. It looks and smells amazing, offering a sweet tobacco pre-light aroma and a bready pre-light flavor that’s making my mouth water. I’m expecting good things here....and decided to write a review to let you know how my first experience with this new blend unfolds.

Side note: I was shocked to see I did not write a review on the original Tempus. I be slackin’, yo!

As I said before, the pre-light characteristics of this cigar really captured my attention. Upon inspecting the foot, I notice a modest mix of darker, ligero-esque tobaccos throughout the blend – foreshadowing of some strength ahead.

The smoke begins with a warm, roasted flavor. Almost like dark roast coffee, with a dry but toasty backbone of dark tobacco flavors beneath. This initial bouquet fills the palate with thick, creamy smoke. The exhale through the nose is surprisingly smooth. However, this all changes after an inch, as red pepper enters the fray....this pepper coats the back of the palate in smooth fashion and becomes a dominate flavor through the nose shortly thereafter. Interestingly enough, I am also picking up a slightly sweet touch of – what seems to be – caramel on the finish....just on the front of the palate. I don’t notice this new intricacy with every puff, but it’s certainly there.

I am midway through, and the power behind those darker tobaccos I mentioned earlier are shining through. This cigar is meaty. Rich, toasty to the core with dark tobacco flavors and a dash of pepper....the caramel is gone as the strength reaches my gut. I wouldn’t call this a full-bodied cigar (not yet, at least), but it is certainly satisfying on many levels with two thirds remaining.

The final stretch is pure maduro. A bold display of strong, but properly cared for tobaccos dishing out impressive flavors that linger long on the palate. Even the aroma has intensified. It was toasty and charcoal-like at first, but has now evolved into a zesty, somewhat oily aroma.

Wow. The darker side of Tempus has many faces. All of which are presented in balanced fashion despite their contrasting attributes. From spicy to sweet, dry to rich, the Alec Bradley Tempus kept me on my toes from start to finish.
