Topper Cigar Company 1896 Danli - Cigar Review

Topper Cigar Company 1896 Danli 
6 x 54 Belicoso
MY NOTES:
A well-constructed offering with a slight and even draw resistance, tight seams, and sans hard/soft spots. Combustion is nigh dead-even and grows to almost an inch of marbled grey burnt offerings. Bittersweet chocolate (with its vanilla attachment) driven profile off-set by warm red spices. Middlings a' java -- from blonde roast, to espresso, settling into a French-press'd French roast. Leathery to the point of meaty and that's laid a-top its dirt/earth under-belly.

WRAPPER: Connecticut Broadleaf 
BINDER: Honduran Corojo
FILLER: Honduran Corojo

STRENGTH: Medium
ORIGIN: Honduras
On THIS Kaplowitz To-day (well-worth the listening to) 
I stated incorrectly that the blend was:

WRAPPER: Connecticut Broadleaf
BINDER: Pennsylvania
FILLER: Dominican, Honduran, and USA fillers

Darn you to heck and back, Internet.
To be clear the recipe is:

WRAPPER: Connecticut Broadleaf 
BINDER: Honduran Corojo
FILLER: Honduran Corojo

These are short/mixed leaf beauts made at Davidoff's CAMACHO factory, from COROJO trimmings. CAMACHO factory, COROJO trimmings... CAMACHO, COROJO... I didn't say anything. Why? What'd ya hear? I'll tell ya what ya heard -- these are some fantastic three-buck-ish stogies.
