Family is a common source of influence and inspiration in the cigar industry, particularly when creating new brands and blends. ACE Prime co-founder and master blender Luciano Meirelles decided he wanted to blend a cigar to honor his late mother, Maria Lucia Meirelles, to capture the complexity, grit and vibrance of her character.
Meirelles wanted to blend a cigar that reflected his mother’s life story. “It took me many years before I dared to blend something inspired by my mother. She passed away when I was only 12 years old, and it was only recently that I was able to fully understand and know her complicated life’s story,” Meirelles said. The cigar he created is meant to be an intricate smoke, heavy with bold flavors but with an air of versatility intended to appeal to experienced and novice smokers alike.
Only 4000 boxes produced.
