Ventura Announces “Slaughterhouse: The Operator” – Benefits Cigars for Warriors – Cigar News

Ventura Cigar Company has announced a new cigar in the Slaughterhouse line, Slaughterhouse: The Operator. This is a collaboration with Operation: Cigars for Warriors. The cigar comes in bundles of 10 that the company says have aged for multiple years. Each bundles includes a postcard about Cigars For Warriors’ (CFW) mission and a limited-edition decal featuring The Operator artwork. All profits benefit Cigars for Warriors.

Cigars for Warriors is a really special organization. The work they do organizing, collecting, and shipping donations to our troops doesn’t go unrecognized, when the opportunity to collaborate presented itself – it was a no-brainer.

This is a new blend in the Slaughterhouse line. The Operator comes in a 6 x 50 toro that uses natural Nicaraguan tobacco for the wrapper, binder, and filler. The company describes the flavor profile as slightly more complex than the original Slaughterhouse, well rounded and medium-bodied. Slaughterhouse: The Operator is rolled at the Plasencia factory in Nicaragua.

We are elated to be working with Kretek and their many subsidiaries. I have personally enjoyed being part of designing the logo and packaging. The Kretek team’s professionalism is unparalleled and has made this project a joy for our team. This entry into the synergy program is truly beyond cool! On top of it being an excellent new medium bodied cigar it is economically friendly also. Please try a few and support our amazing deployed troops today!
