Ventura Cigar to Add Two New Lines at IPCPR


Ventura Cigar Co. has made it known that they will be releasing two new lines at the IPCPR Convention and Trade Show in July: the Project 805 and PSyKo Seven. Both cigars have been seen in cigar magazine advertisements and have been added to Ventura’s website in recent weeks.

Project 805 is being made at La Aurora’s E. León Jimenes Tabacalera factory in the Dominican Republic and is centered around a leaf called Andulo that Ventura Cigar Co. says is “a unique tobacco never before used in cigars…naturally flavored, aromatic, and so utterly different it is a disruption to the Industry.”


The wrapper for the Project 805 is a Corojo Shade leaf, though the country was not specified. The binder is a Dominican Olor leaf, with the filler comprised of Dominican tobaccos and Andulo. The cigar is described as being “mild with complex flavor,” and will debut in four sizes: a 5 x 50 Robusto called the 805R, a 6 x 50 Toro called the 805T, a 6 1/4 x 52 Figurado called the 805F, and a 7 x 50 Churchill called the 805C.

The name for Project 805 seems to come from the area code where Ventura Cigar Company is located, Moorpark, Calif.

PSyKo Seven is being marketed under the slogan “Medicate Your Mind,” and features seven tobaccos from six different countries, with production being handled by Tabadom in the Dominican Republic, the factory owned by Henke Kelner of Davidoff fame.

The PSyKo Seven uses a Dominican Hybrid wrapper, Mexican Sumatra binder and what is being called a “multiple country blend” for the filler. It will debut in three sizes: a 5 1/2 x 50 Robusto, 6 1/4 x 48 Gordito and 6 x 60 Gordo, and according to Ventura Cigar Co. has a mild-medium taste with “distinct transitions.” It is slated to be released in August.

About the author

I strive to capture the essence of a cigar and the people behind them in my work – every cigar you light up is the culmination of the work of countless people and often represents generations of struggle and stories. For me, it’s about so much more than the cigar – it’s about the story behind it, the experience of enjoying the work of artisans and the way that a good cigar can bring people together. In addition to my work with halfwheel, I’m the public address announcer for the Colorado Rockies and Arizona Diamondbacks during spring training, as well as for the Salt River Rafters of the Arizona Fall League, the WNBA's Phoenix Mercury and the Arizona Rattlers of the Indoor Football League. I also work in a number of roles for, plus I'm a voice over artist. I previously covered the Phoenix and national cigar scene for, and was an editor for Cigar Snob magazine.
