Topper Cigar Company rolled out one of the smaller booths on the floor, but they were right up on the front row, just to the left of the entrance, which helped garner them a good bit of foot traffic and extra sets of eyeballs checking out the company’s cigars.

Making a mix of machine and hand-made cigars, Topper Cigars has generally gone with more reasonably priced products instead of the higher end of the premium cigar market. This changed with their latest release.

Topper Cigar Company 120th Anniversary

For the company’s 120th Anniversary, they decided to release a special cigar. Going somewhat out of their lineup, they released a special size cigar that comes in two blends – five of each that will all come in the same box together. One interesting thing that Chris Topper told us about the cigar is that he found the primary band in their warehouse, dating back to about 60 years ago. So while the tobacco might be new, in addition to the secondary band which was only a mockup – we’re getting a little piece of history with each cigar.

I have been smoking cigars since 2005 and reviewing them as a hobby since 2010. Initially, I started out small with a 50-count humidor and only smoking one or two cigars a month. Not knowing anybody else that smoked cigars, it was only an occasional hobby that I took part in. In March of 2010, I joined Nublive and Cigar Asylum, connecting me with many people who also shared an interest in cigars. Reading what they had to say about brands I had never heard of, I quickly immersed myself in the boutique brands of the industry and it was then that cigars transformed from a hobby into a passion.
