Basic Information: Cornelius & Anthony Aerial

Wrapper – Ecuador Connecticut

Tobacco Blend – Nicaragua

Pricing – $9.00

Body – Medium


A light-walnut colored wrapper with a few visible veins and invisible seams.


Aroma – Cedar, Raisin, Cinnamon

Type of Cut – Straight

Cold Draw – Cedar, Raisin and Chocolate almost like Raisinette candy!

After Toast:

First Third – This starts off with cedar, a nutmeg type of spice and pepper. As the cigar settles, it opens up to a cedar, almond mixed with a peppery leather finish. The burn is pristine and ash holds through the third.

Second Third – Creamy notes start this third followed by the cedar and light leather finish. A beautiful medium bodied experience thus far. The burn remains pristine and ash falls at the halfway point of the smoke.

Final Third – The creamy almond note kicks in followed by cedar, spice and the peppery finish from the beginning. It’s a solid medium bodied experience at this point. The burn remains pristine.

Suggested Pairing:

Bourbon – Rabbit Hole Sherry Cask

Wine – Gruner Veltliner

Overall Experience:

This Cornelius & Anthony Aerial is a great medium bodied cigar with lots of pleasant flavors that compliment each other well. Not an overpowering cigar, but has just enough strength to make it a worthwhile smoke. I would pick one of these up again in a heartbeat.
