Perdomo Estate Seleccion Vintage Maduro is popularly known as ESV as well. Like all the Perdomo cigar lines, the ESV line is split into three variants which are Maduro, Sun Grown, and Connecticut.
This brand is close to the heart of the Perdomo family. It was first introduced in 2005 in honor of the late Nick Perdomo Sr. Perdomo used the ESV designation on three occasions in 2005, 2016, and 2019. For every appearance, the ESV underwent tweaks on looks, shapes, and tobaccos used for every new iteration.
The most recent iteration took place in 2019 during the annual IPCPR Trade Show in Las Vegas. Its presence was somewhat underplayed, and it was box-pressed for the first time.
