"Five generations ago, my great-great-granddaddy, Cornelius Bailey, set out on a path to make a life," says company founder, Steven Anthony Bailey. "But not just an ordinary life, a life that counted for something. For family, for friends, and for generations to come."Although the Bailey family continues to grow tobacco on their farm in Keysville, Virginia, the tobaccos used in their cigars are grown in Central America. Named for the Bailey family's patriarch, Cornelius cigars are handcrafted at the famed El Titan de Bronze factory in Miami's Little Havana district. The smoke is medium-bodied with a layered, sweet 'n spicy complexity. The full-bodied, Daddy Mac, named for Steven father, Mac Bailey, is made at La Zona in Estelí with a Nicaraguan core and a shimmering Brazilian wrapper. Also made at La Zona is are the Venganza and Meridian. Starting with a blast of bold flavor, Venganza rounds out to a smoke with perfect balance and lingering sweetness, while the medium-bodied Meridian has rich notes of spice, wood, sweet tobacco and a creamy, refined balance.
"Our passion for the finest grown tobacco coupled with the foremost aspects of craftsmanship allows us to introduce the most exquisite cigars on the market," adds Steven. Add some Cornelius & Anthony Cigars to your next order. You'll be glad you did.
