Archetype by Ventura Cigar Company is inspired by the work of psychologist Dr. Carl Jung and mythographer Joseph Campbell, who defined ‘archetypes’ as the constantly repeating characters who occur in the dreams of all people and the myths of all cultures.
First introduced in 2016, Archetype is a unique series that focuses primarily on the delicate flavor nuances that are often lost in today’s trend of “powerhouse” cigars. In addition, the series of five cigar blends has been split into two categories: Chapter 1 and Chapter 2. Chapter 1 cigars are produced at Davidoff’s facilities in the Dominican Republic, while Chapter 2 cigars are rolled at Drew Estate’s factory in Estelí, Nicaragua.
With a series centralized around repeating characters of our dreams, it’s fitting that the first cigar in the Archetype series is dubbed “Dreamstate.” This soft and nuanced blend is carefully crafted at Davidoff’s prestigious facilities in Villa Gonzales, Dominican Republic, using a golden-hued Ecuadorian Connecticut wrapper, Dominican San Vicente binder, and an undisclosed filler blend of multiple countries. Archetype Dreamstate is the most mild, smooth, and creamy experience in the Archetype collection. Flavors are of table cream, salted butter, crackers, honey, citrus, and a touch of white pepper.
