In 2015, Cornelius & Anthony debuted Meridian, a nautical-themed cigar blended in the Dominican Republic at PDR Cigars. Strangely, the cigars were never released. Then, in 2016, C&A returned with a completely new look. The new C&A brand introduced two new cigars early in the year, both being blended at burgeoning and boutique factories (El Titan de Bronze and La Zona).
After a good reception for the revamped brand, Cornelius introduced another two cigars at IPCPR 2016: Venganza and Meridian. And while Venganza was new to consumers, the Meridian name caught the eye of a few trained eyes. The cigars were completely redesigned, showcasing artwork to match the new look of C&A, as well as being moved to Nicaragua and featuring a completely new blend.
