Stogie Travels hosted by Myron Gooch Sr. “Indiana Ortez IPCPR 2019”.
There’s a new face and cigar on the scene at Ventura Cigar Company. Introducing PSyKo SEVEN Nicaragua by Indiana Ortez, rising cigar industry star, and daughter of tobacco industry icon Omar Ortez. This collaboration is a new line extension to our popular PSyKO SEVEN brand, and offers a fresh, bold point of view from the young blender. Indiana Ortez was also the master blender behind Ventura Cigar’s Fathers, Friends, and Fire limited edition cigar that was released in June of 2018.
Indiana spearheaded the project with her trademark enthusiasm and expertise, testing blend after blend to get exactly the essence she was looking for. The result is the bold and complex PSyKo SEVEN Nicaragua; offering rich, nuanced flavors that constantly evolve throughout the smoking experience. It’s a cigar that invites you to unleash the madness and experience the spirit of Nicaragua.
“Whenever you want to create a new blend, you need to depend on your intuition,” says Ortez. “It’s like a recipe- you can’t force making something that’s truly great. If you enjoy the process as you go through it, your intuition will guide you.”
PSyKo SEVEN Nicaragua is hand-rolled in the Ortez factory, Condega Nicaragua, and is wrapped in a 2007 Vintage Desflorada wrapper as a nod to the stories of those working within the tobacco industry before her.
“Every cigar has a story to tell,” says Indiana. “Every puff from a favorite cigar is the story behind the growers, the workers, the blenders- the people who have dedicated their lives to the craft.”
PSyKo SEVEN Nicaragua will be available in 20-count boxes, with cigars found in three sizes: Gordo (6”x60), Robusto (5”x50), and Toro (6”x50).
