Gerhard Anderlohr, General Manager, Davidoff of Geneva Switzerland, Oettinger Davidoff AG noted:

“There’s something really unique about the Psyko Seven cigars. We’ve been impressed with their longstanding quality and success and are pleased to work with Ventura Cigars to bring this brand into Swiss retailers.

The Psyko Seven Maduro, made the Stogie Press top 25 list of new cigars in 2015.  The cool, eye-catching edge of the Psyko Seven brand, and the high-quality craftsmanship of these cigars made at the Occidental Cigar Factory in the Dominican Republic, are expected to draw buyers from all over Switzerland, potentially leading to additional growth into other European countries.

Designed to strike a chord of taste and experience, the complex flavors of Psyko Seven’s blend of seven tobaccos offer a medium-bodied, extraordinary smoke that’s richly satisfying. The branding is equally attention-getting, with clean, white packaging and detailing that reads more like a doctor’s orders. Psyko Seven cigars have earned high ratings by top industry publications, and have become almost a cult classic in the United States market.

The Psyko Seven cigars include:

  • Psyko Seven Natural, which received over-90 ratings by Cigar Snob, Cigar & Spirits, and Cigar Aficionado,
  • Psyko Seven Maduro, which received an over-90 rating from Cigar Aficionado,
  • Psyko Seven Connecticut, a relatively recent release.
  • Maduro Psykorillos, conveniently sized for when you’re short on time.

So get ready Europe for turning Psyko in 2018 and we hope you enjoy them as much as we do here in the United States.
