At the 2016 IPCPR public expo, Cornelius and Anthony displayed a reblended adaptation of the Meridian line. It highlights fine art that falls in with the nostalgic branding that the organization has brought with its Cornelius and Daddy Mac lines. Meridian utilizes an Ecuadorian wrapper and Ecuadorian binder.

Subsequent to taking a release delay, in January 2017 the Meridian made it to the market. Meridian was initially exhibited by Cornelius & Anthony at the 2015 IPCPR Trade Show. The first was made at PDR Cigars for Cornelius and Anthony. They did manage a soft-launch, but Cornelius and Anthony pulled the plug before full circulation. A choice was made to reblend and move creation to Erik Espinosa’s La Zona production line in Estelí, Nicaragua. The new iteration of Meridian made its debut at the 2016 IPCPR Trade Show.

The Bailey family has been developing tobacco for more than 150 years. Cornelius and Anthony gets its name from Cornelius Bailey, Steven Bailey’s great-great grandfather and the first Bailey to cultivate tobacco. Steven Bailey’s middle name is also Anthony.

The Meridian blend comprises of Nicaraguan and Dominican tobaccos bound by a Rosado wrapper from Ecuador. The Cornelius and Anthony Meridian is available in four vitolas in 20-count boxes. Corona Gorda: 5 1/2 x 46, Robusto: 5 x 50, Toro: 6 x 50, Gordo: 6 x 60.
