The company’s press release states “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.”

The cigar will be available in four sizes, limited to 613 “chests” per size. As with prior releases, it does not appear the company will disclose the blend information.

To further communicate the meaning behind these cigars, the company states “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.”

Meerapfel Cigar plans to begin shipping this new cigar in September 2023
