The Meridian is one of the various lines produced by Cornelius & Anthony (for more information on the brand, click here), at the La Zona factory in Estelì (Nicaragua). The line consists of four sizes, inluding the Robusto.
The cigar presents an opaque Colorado shaded wrapper, with brown reflections. It is silky to the touch, with medium evident veins. Filling appears a little lacking in parts and in fact the draw appears open too. The overall construction is average.

Cornelius & Anthony Meridian Robusto: intense aromas of spices reach the nose, followed by nuances of wood and cocoa.
In conclusion, The Cornelius & Anthony Meridian Robusto returns an average smoke, with minimal but recognizable aromas. Evolution is very contained. The smoke in the mouth is sharp and even the increase in intensity of the bitter note does not result in a particularly balanced smoke.
