The world revolves around Archetype
You shouldn’t judge a book by its cover, but I knew I’d love Archetype’s Axis Mundi at first glance. Just look at this thing! Glistening with oils, sharply contrasting with the metallic red band, Axis Mundi is a beautifully dark maduro that practically begs you to pick it out of your humidor. And I’d recommend you do — you won’t be disappointed.
The wrapper leaf in question is a dark Ecuadorian Habano Maduro that sits expertly atop an Indonesian Sumatra binder and Nicaraguan Habano filler leaves. Toasting the foot of the Archetype Axis Mundi, you’ll find droves of tobaccos sweetness, complex baking spices, and a core flavor of dark fruit. Rated an insane 96 by Cigar & Spirits magazine, Axis Mundi might just be the best boutique blend you try this year.
The Archetype Axis Mundi received a respectable 93-rating, and earned a spot in the Top 25 Cigars of 2017. The reviewers noted, "rich layers of coffee bean, caramel, and nuttiness... a hint of cedar manages to manifest itself as well."
