Alec Bradley Tempus Maduro

    Four new sizes were just added to what had been an extremely limited production cigar. The blend is Honduran Trojes and features a unique San Andres maduro wrapper. The wrapper fermentation process includes the use of a bethune made from tree pulp that’s applied to the leaf during the fermentation process. The shorter fermentation time allows the wrapper leaf to maintain some of the strength that would normally be lost during fermentation. $8-$11

Davidoff Maduro Toro

    Four different Dominican fillers comprise this complex medium bodied blend. The wrapper is a Habano Nicaraguan sun grown Maduro, rich and oily. $19
