Last year was a big deal for new products at Topper Cigar Co., 2019? Not so much. As it turns out, when you’ve been in the business for 123 years, your portfolio is pretty well-developed.

Topper is once again back in the larger De Los Reyes complex of affiliated companies. One of the nice perks of not having new products is that it meant that I could have a lengthy conversation with Chris Topper about the various labels in the company’s portfolio.
