The MEERAPFEL family still operates the oldest business in the premium cigar industry - an unrivaled legacy spanning over 400 years and 11 generations of tradition.
Involved with the most mystical brands and personalities in cigar history, MEERAPFEL has contributed to the evolution of the industry throughout the centuries.
Recently, MEERAPFEL has created a new segment in the premium cigar world with its MEERAPFEL Cigar; the UberLuxury.
In the late 1800s, Ernest MEERAPFEL left his family and the comfort and safety of his village of Untergrombach, to set sail and revolutionize the world of premium tobacco. In a similar way to the generations that came before him, Ernest traveled the seas and explored new territories to present the premium cigar landscape with a new sacred leaf.
“My great grandfather Ernest’s exodus was the epitome of curiosity and bravery that our family members have always carried in their hearts; a lust for accessing the finest leaves nature has to offer, no matter how remote or challenging the adventure may be”, Jeremiah MEERAPFEL, le Créateur Cigarier, recalls.
“The ‘Ernest’ MEERAPFEL Master Blend is filled with aspirational sensations, layers of curiosity, and an awe-inspiring complexity, exemplifying the unique explorations of those who leave behind the assumed safety and comfort, to conquer only the finest – the INTRICACY of UberLuxury.”
As with every MEERAPFEL Cigar Master Blend, the revelation of “Ernest” will be presented in ornate caskets showcasing 10 Double Robusto cigars (5 ¾ x 52) at a suggested retail price of 101,00 EUR / 94,00 USD per cigar.
Additionally, majestic wooden chests each holding 25 cigars of the following UberTraditional vitolas will be unveiled: Corona Gorda (5 ½ x 46; SRP: 44,00 EUR / 41,00 USD per cigar), (Robusto (4 ⅞ x 50; SRP: 49,00 EUR / 46,00 USD per cigar) and Lonsdale (6 ¾ x 43; SRP: 53,00 EUR / 50,00 USD per cigar).
Each vitola is strictly limited to 613 chests per year. MEERAPFEL Cigar will ship these masterpieces in September of 2023.
