Archetype Fantasy Miniseries launched as a sub-collection within Ventura Cigar Company's popular Archetype series, featuring three unique cigar blends for the craft-smoking fanatic. While the core-line Archetype series focuses on the constantly repeating characters that occur in dreams and myths of all cultures throughout time, the Fantasy Miniseries dives into one particular storyline: the hero's journey.
As with all Archetype cigars, Ventura has collaborated with one of the most famed manufacturers in all of premium cigars for production, selecting Tabacalera Oliva (of Oliva Serie V fame) for the task. Every smoker has their own personal hero's journey, and the Archetype Fantasy Miniseries explores this with three cigars: Crystals, Curses, and Cloaks.
Archetype Fantasy Crystals boasts an impressive all-Habano blend, using Nicaraguan Habano throughout the binder and filler and being topped with a sun-grown Nicaraguan Habano wrapper. This robusto boasts an attractive pigtail cap and closed foot, but it's the cigar's smoking profile that keeps enthusiasts coming back! Expect a medium-plus body and zesty flavors of cabinet spices, cedar, caramel, cocoa, and roasted nuts.
Archetype Fantasy Curses is the darkest blend of the three, utilizing a hearty Connecticut Broadleaf wrapper over Nicaraguan Habano binder/fillers. This smoke packs a punch, delivering a full body and flavors of earth, dark stone fruit, dark-roast coffee, dark chocolate... essentially everything dark in character!
Archetype Fantasy Cloaks utilizes a light-shade Broadleaf wrapper, secured over a Nicaraguan Habano binder and all-Nicaraguan filler. This smoke is medium-bodied and surprisingly smooth in texture, offering up easily approachable flavors of milk chocolate, mocha, earth, leather, and graham crackers.
