The Meerapfel & Fuente Families have been united for three generations. Over this time, Arturo Fuente built several of its flagship products around Meerapfel Cameroon Wrapper including the 8-5-8, the Don Carlos line, the Hemingway line and the Casa Fuente line.
To honor the family relationship and highlight the exceptional value and uniqueness in which Meerapfel Cameroon contributes to the taste of the cigar, a “seal of authenticity” has been created to assure the connoisseur that the Cameroon Wrapper used, is the real deal.
Richard A. Meerapfel realized his dream: To establish Cameroon wrapper as one of the finest in the world.
Meerapfel Cameroon must therefore be produced the old way, the traditional way … One seed at a time, one leaf at a time. Without the help of tractors, irrigation and other modern equipment.
