MEERAPFEL Cigar Introduces “Ernest” Master Blend: A Tribute to Tradition and Exploration

September 12, 2023 – MEERAPFEL Cigar proudly announces the launch of its third Master Blend, named “Ernest,” in honor of the rich tradition and exploration that defines the brand’s legacy.

A Legacy of Over 400 Years

The MEERAPFEL family maintains the distinction of operating the oldest business in the premium cigar industry, boasting an unrivaled legacy that spans more than four centuries and encompasses 11 generations of tradition. Throughout this illustrious history, MEERAPFEL has been deeply involved with some of the most mystical brands and personalities in the cigar world, contributing significantly to the industry’s evolution.

Introducing the UberLuxury Segment

In recent years, MEERAPFEL has carved out a new segment in the premium cigar world with MEERAPFEL Cigar, known for its UberLuxury offerings.

The Journey of Ernest

The “Ernest” Master Blend pays homage to Ernest MEERAPFEL, who, in the late 1800s, departed from his family and the safety of his village in Untergrombach to embark on a transformative journey across the seas. In the tradition of his forebears, Ernest’s travels led him to explore new territories and bring forth a sacred leaf to the premium cigar landscape.

Jeremiah MEERAPFEL, le Créateur Cigarier, reflects on his great-grandfather’s adventure: “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.”

The “Ernest” MEERAPFEL Master Blend embodies aspirational sensations, layers of curiosity, and an awe-inspiring complexity, reflecting the unique explorations of those who forsake comfort and safety in their quest for the finest – the INTRICACY of UberLuxury.

Presentation and Availability

As with every MEERAPFEL Cigar Master Blend, the “Ernest” will be presented in ornate caskets containing 10 Double Robusto cigars (5 3⁄4 x 52) at a suggested retail price of 101,00 EUR / 94,00 USD per cigar.

Majestic wooden chests housing 25 cigars of the following UberTraditional vitolas will also be unveiled:

  • Robusto (4 7⁄8 x 50; MSRP: 49.00 EUR / 46.00 USD per cigar)
  • Lonsdale (6 3⁄4 x 43; SRP: 53.00 EUR / 50.00 USD per cigar)
