There are two new cigars from Ventura Cigar Company that expand on the Archetype line–Master and Pupil. These two cigars were inspired but he studies of teacher and student Sigmund Freud and Karl Jung, and explore the tensions uncovered with the reversal of roles and transition of student to teacher.
These new blends were crafted by Dr. Cuenca and Juan Martinez of Joya de Nicaragua and made their official debut at the Tobacco Plus Expo (TPE) trade show in Las Vegas this past January. Pupil is described as a mild and relaxed cigar that features an Ecuadoran Connecticut wrapper, Nicaraguan filler and a Nicaraguan binder. It will be presented as a 6 x 52 Toro. The Master is a bold cigar crafted with a Nicaraguan wrapper, filler and binder. It will also be presented as a 6 x 52 Toro.
“No matter where you are in life, you are a master or a pupil. And then, one day, you are both,” says Michael Giannini, general manager of Ventura Cigar Company. “We are students first, learning from those who came before. And then we find ourselves as the teachers, imparting our knowledge on others just starting their quest. We are never fully done learning, either, so the roles of teacher and student are fluid, always changing. The Archetype Master and Pupil cigars explore these transitions and tensions through blends that offer strength and nuance throughout the smoke. We’ve worked on these for over a year with the masters at Joya de Nicaragua, of whom we are all students. These cigars are solid.”
