Archetype Strange Passage cigars are part of a unique premium cigar selection inspired by the work of psychologist Dr. Carl Jung and mythographer Joseph Campbell who defined "archetypes" as the characters who repeatedly occur in dreams and myths across cultures. With that premise setting the stage, the company states: "Archetype cigars are an exploration of nuance that rewards the discriminating palate with highly complex and perfectly-balanced cigars."
Made at Oettinger-Davidoff's Occidental cigar factory in the Dominican Republic, Strange Passage is distinguished by its green and white band that features the earth encircled by a dragon-like creature, and a green band at the foot. The blend is a full-flavored fusion of prized long-filler tobaccos from different countries bound in a Honduran Corojo leaf, and box-pressed in a flawless Ecuadorian Habano wrapper. The result is an impressively complex, medium-full smoke with notes of fresh-roasted coffee, aged wood, and earthy fruit, on a spicy finish.
If you're looking for a cigar that offers top-flight construction, plenty of rich taste at a reasonable price, and is a lot more hip than your average primo, make room in your humidor for Archetype Strange Passage.
