Quick Smoke: Ventura Psyko Seven Robusto

7 Jun 2019

A couple times each week we’ll post a Quick Smoke: not quite a full review, just our brief verdict on a single cigar of “buy,” “hold,” or “sell.”

When I reviewed the Psyko Seven Robusto back in the fall of 2013, the just-released offering from Ventura Cigar was making a splash for its unique presentation. (You can’t see it in the “action” photo above because the enormous outer band needs to be removed before you can fire up the cigar, but you can see it here; and by “it” I mean a white prescription form enticing you to “medicate your mind” with a six-country blend of tobaccos, signed by “El Diablo Blanco.”) But this Dominican-made product from the legendary Henke Kelner has substance to back up its style. Six years of age hasn’t changed the Robusto (5.5 x 50) much, but that’s fine by me since it had performance and flavor from the get-go. The balanced, mild- to medium-bodied profile is bready with notes of cream, almond, oak, and some cinnamon spice. The original asking price was $7, but now you can find it for a bit less if you shop around. That makes it an easy cigar to recommend.

Verdict = Buy.
