review  Hello and welcome to my Churchill Review article. As the title suggests, this article is all about the Churchill. In this episode, we will be taking a peek at the following cigars: Romeo Y Julieta 1875, Arturo Fuente, Ashton Prime Minister, Tempus Centuria, and many others.


The rating system I will use is based on the scale 50-100. All of the cigars I rate in this article are rated 85+. There are a lot of cigars to cover, so let’s get started. First up: The Alec Bradley Tempus Centuria.


Alec Bradley Tempus Centuria

Alec Bradley was founded in 1997 under the more than capable hands of Alan Rubin. The company is known for lines such as its Havana Sungrown and Maxx, both of which have won numerous awards. The tobacco used in the Tempus Centuria comes from the renowned Trojes farm, located on the border between Nicaragua and Honduras.


Encased in a Hondurian wrapper and Indonesian binder, this cigar is rich and refined. Sporting a pleasing sweet, yet nutty taste, it has a pleasant draw and a memorable flavor I think you will enjoy. The filler is a blend of Nicargua and Honduras.

Tabacalera A. Fuente y Cia Arturo Fuente

Tabacalera A. Fuente y Cia has an interesting history. Formed by Arturo Fuente in Cuba, the tobacco grower moved his shop to Tampa, Florida. After years of work, Arturo’s son, Carlos Sr. decided to move the business to Nicaragua (he was unhappy that the cigars being made in Tampa were no longer hand-rolled). However, after several years two factories were burned to the ground by rebels. Finally, in 1980, they opened up a farm in the Dominican Republic, and were the first plantation to grow a successful wrapper in that region.


This handmade, premium cigar is encased in a silky smooth, oily Cameroon wrapper. Expect a woody, semi-spicy flavor and a wonderful bouquet from this cigar. It is also pleasing to fingers, lips, and eyes. A delight for all the senses.
