The newest size in Ventura Cigar Co.’s The Operator line is a collaboration with Operation Cigars for Warriors.
Next month, Ventura will release Slaughterhouse The Operator, a new, limited edition 6 x 50 toro that is made entirely of Nicaraguan tobaccos. This is not only a different blend compared to the original Slaughterhouse line, but also it is also made at a different factory. The Operator is made at Plasencia Cigars S.A. while AgroIndustrial Nicaraguense de Tabaco makes the regular Slaughterhouse. Ventura describes the cigar as “multi-year aged” and “medium-bodied.”
It will have an MSRP of $5 per cigar and is limited to 1,300 bundles of 10 cigars. Notably, the cigars will only be offered to stores that are approved as a donation center for Cigars for Warriors and Ventura says that 100 percent of the proceeds will be donated to Cigars for Warriors.
“Cigars for Warriors is a really special organization,” said Benjamin Winokur, brand manager for Ventura Cigar Co., in a press release. “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.”
Ventura Cigar Co. says it will begin shipping The Operator next month.
