Selected by Cigar Aficionado 2017 #13 Cigar Of The Year – Rated 93

Archetype Axis Mundi Toro is not your typical Nicaraguan cigar. Released in 2016, the Archetype series is the result of an amazing collaboration between Drew Estate and Ventura Cigars. In the case of Axis Mundi, we have a stogie produced in Nicaragua which features three different types of tobacco. The filler is high-end Nicaraguan, while the binder is a rich Indonesian leaf. As for the wrapper, it is an extensively aged Ecuadorian Habano Maduro leaf harvested especially for the cigar in question. With so much going on in the blend, one would expect Axis Mundi to be one heck of a stick. Well, the folks at Cigar Aficionado seem to think so, as in 2017 Archetype Axis Mundi earned a 93 rating and a spot on the world-renowned Top 25 list. Long story short, Axis Mundi was an instant success and continues to satisfy connoisseurs looking for something new that actually has a wow factor.


Built by hand at La Gran Fabrica Drew Estate in Nicaragua, Archetype Axis Mundi leaves little to be desired. An oily wrapper leaf, seamless roll, and dense pack make for a solid draw and crisp burn line. The smoke is dark blue, the billowing clouds of which produce a sweet opening with notes of cedar and black cherry. Throughout the velvety smooth, heavily floral flavor profile appear notes of fruit, cinnamon, and fresh, raw tobacco. An intensely sweet finish decorates the retrohale. Axis Mundi resides on the heavy end of medium-full-bodied, yet is never overpowering and uncommonly balanced. The 6” x 52 Toro size will give you more than enough smoking time to get well-acquainted with the astounding blend.


Axis Mundi, like the rest of the offerings in the Archetype lineup, is meant for serious cigar connoisseurs. While bold and easily enjoyable, the flavor profile includes dozens of twists and turns that only the most sophisticated palates will truly appreciate. Sweet and floral, Axis Mundi pairs well with sweet red wine such as Shiraz or Red Moscato, or a sweet full-bodied beer, a barleywine, for example. The explicit flavor profile of Axis Mundi is similar to that demonstrated by such cigars as Joya de Nicaragua Antano and La Flor Dominicana Double Ligero, strong, sweet, and impeccably smooth. The theme behind the Archetype series is symbols, repeating characters, or “archetypes” recurring in dreams. That being said, don’t hesitate to try an Archetype Axis Mundi Toro—it may just be the cigar you’ve been dreaming about!
