Alec Bradley Releases Tempus Sampler

Alec Bradley Cigars has released a five-pack sampler of its Tempus line. The pack contains one of each of the five original sizes of Tempus: Genesis (5 1/2 inches by 42 ring gauge), Terra Novo (5 inches by 50 ring), Imperator (6 1/8 inches by 52 ring), Creo (a lancero measuring 7 1/2 inches by 42 ring), and the Centuria (7 inches by 49 ring), which rated 94 points in Cigar Insider and Cigar Aficionado.

The samplers shipped in early November and will have a suggested retail price of $39.95, roughly the same as if the cigars were purchased separately. Alec Bradley is limiting 2008 production of the samplers to 1,000 boxes, or 5,000 cigars.
