Ventura Cigar Company announced that the Archetype Chapter 2 Cigars, Initiation and Axis Mundi, have been restocked, and will now be shipping to premium tobacco retailers nationwide. Initially launched at the 2016 IPCPR trade show and available only at select tobacconists, the Chapter 2 cigars sold out fast in July 2016. With inventory restored, these Drew Estate-produced cigars will be more readily obtainable for fans of the Archetype brand.
“The exceptional blends of the Initiation and Axis Mundi cigars are unchanged in this second release,” says Benjamin Winokur, Marketing Manager, Ventura Cigar Company. “We’ve updated the artwork on the bands, but have otherwise left the perfection of these smokes alone. The only real difference of this batch versus the initial Chapter 2 release is its wider distribution. Initiation and Axis Mundi will finally be easier for customers to find. And that’s something to be excited about.”
“We are pleased that Archetype Cigars have been so well-received,” says Jason Carignan, CMO of Kretek, parent company of Ventura Cigar Company. “We really looked at creating a unique experience for the smoker – from the tobacco blends to the design of the packaging and references to transcendental legend. Now that both Chapter 1 and Chapter 2 blends are readily available, we hope the collection continues to gain traction as people explore the breadth of the brand.”
Initiation has an Ecuadorian Habano wrapper and features a blend of Nicaraguan tobaccos. It is available in four sizes: Corona (5 x 46), Robusto (5 x 54), Toro (6 x 52), and Churchill (7 x 48), and retails from $10.25 to $13.
