"Dinner was done and the air was finally starting to cool when I went out to give this cigar a try. I was blown away initially by the huge flavors this cigar produced and I couldn't have been luckier to have waited until early evening to smoke the cigar. It is quite intense, and I'm sure a lot of people would call it harsh. I couldn't imagine smoking this earlier in the day." -Isaac M. (The Nothing)

This was a very enjoyable cigar. There were plenty of flavors to keep me interested and kept looking at the cigar like mmmm mmm. This cigar would an excellent choice as your first cigar of the day with your favorite cup of joe. The draw was very nice and open, and had a razor sharp burn that needed no touch ups. I smoked the cigar with an inch to go, and would liked to have continue on, but it went out.

"This was a nice way to start my cigar smoking day. The flavor changes were interesting but never over powering and enjoyable. I'd recommend this to any smoker to start their day." -Jason H. (Jokey Smurf)
"This was a very enjoyable smoke. The combinations of flavors was quite suprising, and the difference in strength was an added bonus. I think the hard pack made this cigar last a good long while more than i had anticipated it burned very slow." -Ryan H. (Ryan H.)
Cornelius & Anthony Premium Cigars is proud to release the Aerial line at this summer’s IPCPR trade show in Las Vegas. Aerial is produced at the La Zona factory in Estelí, Nicaragua. The line will be initially released in 4 sizes and presented in boxes of 20. Aerial is a beautifully sophisticated blend created with old world Cuban style.
"This is a cigar that I feel could benefit from an extended nap in the humidor to smooth out the edges and let the lesser, more nuanced flavors emerge. As it is, it is a good smoke, but I would hesitate to recommend it to a new smoker, and would certainly not have someone try this one for their first retrohale. Once I find out what this is, I may hunt down a few to bury in the humidor for 12 months or more...just to see what father time can do. " -Jason H. (Jokey Smurf)
