Cornelius & Anthony Premium Cigars has released its second regular production line of cigars, Daddy Mac, which is a tribute to Steven Bailey’s father Mac Bailey.

Daddy Mac uses a Brazilian wrapper, Ecuadorian binder and Nicaraguan fillers, with production handled by the La Zona factory in Estelí, Nicaragua. It is debuting in four sizes, Gordo (6 x 60, $11), Toro (6 x 50, $10), Robusto (5 x 50, $9) and Corona Gorda (5 1/2 x 46, $8.50). All four sizes come in 20-count boxes and are scheduled to begin shipping next week.

A press release issued by Cornelius & Anthony describes the cigar medium-to-full bodied with “a layered complexity of sweetness and spice that dances on the palate. This beautifully crafted blend has a superior balance of flavor.”

The release of the Daddy Mac will give Cornelius & Anthony two new cigars on retailers shelves this month, as it released its first line, Cornelius, last week.

I strive to capture the essence of a cigar and the people behind them in my work – every cigar you light up is the culmination of the work of countless people and often represents generations of struggle and stories. For me, it’s about so much more than the cigar – it’s about the story behind it, the experience of enjoying the work of artisans and the way that a good cigar can bring people together. In addition to my work with halfwheel, I’m the public address announcer for the Colorado Rockies and Arizona Diamondbacks during spring training, as well as for the Salt River Rafters of the Arizona Fall League, the WNBA's Phoenix Mercury and the Arizona Rattlers of the Indoor Football League. I also work in a number of roles for, plus I'm a voice over artist. I previously covered the Phoenix and national cigar scene for, and was an editor for Cigar Snob magazine.
