Topper Corona Grande Cigar Review “Tops ‘Em All”.

Brand History:

Reintroducing the original hand-rolled cigar that “Tops ‘Em All”.  Their Breva, Corona Granda, Perfecto & Ebony are once again handcrafted according to the Topper heritage and packaged in handsome vintage styled 30-count boxes, paying homage to their cigars produced in the 1960’s.

These Connecticut Broadleaf wrapped cigars continue to offer the same incredible value and consistent quality that the Topper family has been known for since 1896.

 Appearance:

The cigar had a dark wrapper with a mild pre-light smell.  It has a very rich and rustic appearance with a slight oily sheen and an oily, dark wrapper.  The texture is leathery to the touch and you will find a full, earthy aroma on the veiny wrapper.

Journey Profile:

 1st quarter: Once lit, the cigar produced a lot smoke.  An effortless draw created a light bodied aroma in the air.  Sweetness hit the palate with good creamy clouds of smoke.  The draw provided big earthy flavors.  2nd quarter: Some spice developed through the nose and on the palate.  A steady creamy texture began to develop and remained consistent.  Some cocoa notes were also present.  3rd quarter: Spice began to develop through the nose, but delicious earthy characters remained consistent throughout.  A slow burn provided for a light and dense ash.  Some sweetness also appeared and was accompanied by an alluring, rich aroma.  4th quarter: A touch of the underlying sweetness that had previously appeared remained in the aroma and through to the finish.  It culminated into a well-balanced medium body with a great flavor profile.  Its hearty aroma remained consistent throughout the cigar.

Final Thoughts:

The Topper Corona Grande is a medium both in body and flavor with well-rounded characteristics for the palate.  It has great construction and is very easy going for such a flavorful cigar.  Its rich and full aroma will leave you with a long lasting impression.
