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.”
