Ventura Cigar Company to Hold Rolling Event with
Michael Giannini + Indiana Ortez at Big Smoke 2019.
Two industry stars share secrets of their craft as attendees learn to roll their own Psyko Seven Nicaragua Cigar.
November, 2019 – Ventura Cigar Company will keep everyone rolling at Big Smoke 2019. Happening November 15 – November 17 at the Mirage in Las Vegas, Cigar Aficionado’s annual event is a popular draw for premium cigar enthusiasts. It offers attendees the opportunity to meet, greet, pose, and sample wares from top industry names. Ventura Cigar will be taking things to the next level, rolling PSyKo Seven Nicaragua cigars in their booth on Friday and Saturday, and offering a Rolling Seminar on Sunday, 11/17, where attendees will roll their own Archetype Axis Mundi cigar.
Michael Giannini, General Manager of Ventura Cigar Company, will be heading up the Ventura Cigar Company team and leading the rolling events.
“It’s great to be coming back to Big Smoke,” says Giannini. “Ventura Cig
ar is honored to be here, and excited to be rolling this weekend. The Cigar Aficionado team always puts on a solid event. And they ranked our Archetype Axis Mundi cigar as #13 of the top 25 for 2017, so we’re stoked to give Big Smoke attendees the opportunity to create their own on Sunday. We hope everyone also comes by the Ventura Cigar booth on Friday and Saturday to check out the PSyKo Seven Nicaragua cigars that we’ll be rolling with Indiana Ortez. It’s not often to get the chance to create with a cigar’s creator. It’s going to be such a good time.”
Indiana Ortez, rising industry star and the mastermind behind the PSyKo Seven Nicaragua blend will be rolling alongside Giannini at the Ventura Cigar Booth, and during Sunday’s Rolling Seminar. Hailing from the renowned Ortez tobacco family in Nicaragua, Indiana first collaborated with Ventura Cigar in 2018 on the Fathers, Friends, and Fire cigar, and has continued to add her expertise and youthful vibrance to their portfolio. The duo will share stories and behind-the-scenes info as they give Big Smoke attendees a hands-on rolling experience throughout the weekend.
“This won’t be as easy as people think,” says Ortez. “There’s a lot of factors that go into rolling, including patience, skill, and intuition- especially while using Connecticut Desflorada wrappers from a 2017 crop, like we’ll be doing for the PSyKo Seven Nicaragua cigars. But I know it’s going to be fun, and I’m looking forward to it!”
