May 2019 – Ventura Cigar Company (VCC) is pleased to announce the arrival of PSyKo SEVEN Nicaragua, the fresh, bold blend created in collaboration with rising industry star, Indiana Ortez. All eyes have been turned toward the PSyKo SEVEN Nicaragua cigar since its debut at TAA 2019. And enthusiasts everywhere have been anticipating the rich, relaxing smoke seen all over Instagram since the show. The wait is over, and PSyKo SEVEN Nicaragua is now shipping to retailers nationwide.

PSyKo SEVEN Nicaragua is the second collaboration between Ventura Cigar Company and Indiana Ortez. The young blender is the master behind the Fathers, Friends, and Fire cigar, which earned industry accolades when it launched in Spring 2018. Using her expertise, intuition, and trademark enthusiasm for the tobacco leaf, in PSyKo SEVEN Nicaragua, Ortez created a complex blend of nuanced flavors that evolve throughout the entire smoke.

“Indiana created something special for PSyKo SEVEN,” says Michael Giannini, General Manager at Ventura Cigar Company. “She learned the craft from her father, master blender Omar Ortez, but in this cigar, the flavor and the vibe is all Indiana. And it’s all PSyKo SEVEN. We’re excited to get this product onto the shelves of our tobacconists, and into the hands of cigar smokers just in time for smoking season.”

PSyKo SEVEN Nicaragua is hand-rolled in the Ortez factory, Condega Nicaragua, and is wrapped in a 2007 vintage Desflorada wrapper. The cigars will be available in 20-count boxes, with cigars found in three sizes: Gordo (6”x60), Robusto (5”x50), and Toro (6”x50).
