2002 is the new 1991.

Introducing the highly anticipated follow-up to Tabacalera Perdomo's beloved ESV cigar series: Perdomo ESV 2002, otherwise known as Estate Vintage Selection. The concept is simple - to us, not Nick - hand-select the finest premium tobaccos cultivated from Perdomo's proprietary farms in 2002. Beautiful, top grade leaves patiently aged and teeming with flavor. Then, the icing on the cake - one of Perdomo's characteristically flawless wrapper leaves, completing one of the finest Nicaraguan handmades on the planet today.

The Sun Grown cigar is new to the ESV line-up. The wrapper is a thick and oily Habano sun-grown leaf from Ecuador. A rich, creamy, heady wrapper chosen to match the vintage blend of Nicaraguan long-fillers perfectly. Expect a rich core of dark tobacco flavors, earth, cedar, and a touch of coffee with a long, peppery finish. The smoke is medium to full and grows more complex and intense throughout the burn. Delicious, and worth every red cent. Welcome back, ESV.

I was turned on to these through a local BM, it is a great blend and I always tried to keep a few on hand in my humidor. I will say though, the stick I got from the BM had uneven burn issues. That didn't turn me off, but I figured it had to been a one off. I have since been through a couple boxes of these and have continued to have issues with uneven burn and wrappers splitting. When I have one that doesn't run into those issues it is an absolute pleasure to smoke(hence why I have gone through a couple boxes). I would say that for the price per stick I am slightly disappointed with the construction, but if I can snag on sale it is worth a try.

Perdomo ESV 2002 Sun Grown


Not a Perdomo? Don’t smoke that kid…you’ll grow horns.

WOW! This is the first thing that comes to mind when I think of this blend! These babies arrived at the CI Super-Store a measly 2 weeks ago and it’s already among our most popular selling BOXES.

Nick Perdomo is one of the most distinguishable personalities in this complex industry of cigars. When conversing with Nick, you will notice he exudes confidence, passion and enthusiasm for his product every time you see him.

The Perdomo ESV 2002 Sun Grown is a clear manifestation of his efforts to produce the finest cigars in Central America. During my first experience with the ESV 2002 Sun Grown, I found myself at the brand new cigar-friendly restaurant, The Wooden Match, in downtown Bethlehem. With the camaraderie of several co-workers and friendliest restaurant staff this side of the Monacacy Creek, I enjoyed an order of 12 Angry Birds, a dozen jumbo size chicken wings with a hot sauce that was spicy enough to get the nose running but smooth enough I didn’t need a tub of Pepto Bismol afterwards.

The lovely Wooden Match server (lady, of course) serves me a double of Ron Barcelo with a requested 2 cubes of ice and I’m ready to enjoy my ESV 2002 Sun Grown by Perdomo.

Pre-lit, the construction on this thing is flawless and the presentation is utterly impressive. Available in 4 different vitolas (sizes), I grab myself the Robusto, a stout 5” X 54 flavor bomb, out of the dark, golden-hinged cigar box. The cigar band, located toward to head of the cigar, is similar to the old ESV ’91 band but features a gold, almost copper color which is representative of the Sun Grown edition of the ’02.

The shiny Ecuadorian Habano wrapper simply oozes with oils and has near-perfect vein structure.   This rotund Nicaraguan handmade is firmly packed and feels somewhat dense in the hand.

Upon lighting the Perdomo ESV 2002 Robusto, an explosion of white pepper followed by a spicy, sweetness ensues as the foot of the cigar becomes toasted with a quadruple-flame Lotus Perdomo lighter. The flavor remains spicy, complemented by some nutty undertones toward the middle third of the cigar. This Nicaraguan Sun Grown exhibits solid complexity throughout the first few inches of the cigar with nuttiness similar to walnut. 

The long pronounced finished on this Nicaraguan beauty is superb and exhibits a flavorful sweetness. One thing I noticed is the stunning, white ash that this Sun Grown treat is exuding, a sign of nutrient-rich tobacco and outstanding construction. 

Overall, the pairing of Ron Barcelo and the Perdomo ESV 2002 Sun Grown Robusto harmonized quite well with my palate. Moreover, The Wooden Match atmosphere combined with the fact I can smoke anywhere in the building is icing on the proverbial cake!   This was a fantastic and memorable smoking experience.

On a side note, throughout the years I’ve determined that Nick Perdomo is one of the hardest working men in the industry. This is pertinent in regards to his work ethic at our annual Perdomo Event at the CI Super-Store which takes place exactly one day before CigarFest. Year-in-and-year-out, Nick and the CI Super-Store’s very own Joe S. never cease to amaze me with the amount of cigar knowledge they attain and, moreover, how many BOXES of cigars they can move in one day. It’s a remarkable sight.

Brock’s thought for the day: Several years ago a young man happened to stop into the CI Super-Store during one of our hailed Perdomo events. As he stepped toward the register to pay for his non-Perdomo product, Nick kindly interrupts him and says, “Don’t smoke that stuff kid. You’ll grow horns.” Needless to say, the young customer put back the product and left the store with several Perdomo cigars.
