Ventura Cigar Company announced today a new line extension in the PSyKo SEVEN series: PSyKo SEVEN Nicaragua. This cigar is blended by Indiana Ortez daughter of tobacco industry legend Omar Ortez. Indiana Ortez is also the blender of the Ventura Cigar’s Fathers, Friends, and Fire limited edition cigar. The cigar will debut at TAA 2019.
“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 at the Ortez factory, Condega Nicaragua. The blend uses a 2007 vintage Desflorada wrapper. It comes in boxes of 20 in three vitolas: Gordo (6”x60), Robusto (5”x50), and Toro (6”x50).
“Indiana has such vision,” says Michael Giannini, General Manager at Ventura Cigar Company. “She has a genuine, organic understanding for the nuances of tobacco, and knows how to bring it to life so the smoke can be enjoyed to the fullest. She’s a real talent, and we’re so pleased to be working with her and getting her passion and story blended into our PSyKo SEVEN Nicaragua cigar.”
