Cigar Review: PSyKO Seven Nicaragua Robusto by Ventura Cigars

Initial Thoughts:

One of the best things about joining a cigar of the month club like CIGRco, Luxury Cigar Club, or Good Cigar Co, is that you get access to new and different cigars each month. And that's the case with today's cigar, the PSyKO Seven Nicaragua, that I received from CIGRco in September 2019.

This cigar is a Nicaraguan puro, meaning all of the tobacco inside is from Nicaragua. The Connecticut wrapper isn't as dark as I'd expected, and I especially wasn't expecting the bold flavors I tasted as soon as I lit the cigar.

On the cold draw, I tasted burning wood, maybe pine. The draw from the punch is just perfect, and I'm looking forward to seeing what the PSyKO Seven Nicaragua robusto has to offer.

In the middle third of the cigar, the burn was almost perfect, and the draw was fantastic. Regarding the flavors, the PSyKO Seven Nicaragua is about as classic as they come. On every puff, you'll know you're smoking a Nicaraguan cigar by the delicious combination of both spicey and creamy tasting notes.

Final Thoughts:

In the final third of the cigar, some of the delicious flavors from the first part of the cigar became harsh and perhaps a little bitter.

However, overall, the PSyKO Seven Nicaragua had a nearly perfect burn and perfect draw with a really tasty and delicious beginning and middle. Had that great experience that welcomed me into the cigar been the same experience that bid me farewell, this cigar would've earned a higher score. But, it didn't, so the PSyKO Seven Nicaragua earns a CigarScore 4.
