Europe Honors Edicion De Silvio® As Best Nicaraguan Brand
European Authority Selects Perdomo Again For Prestigious Award 

MIAMI – Tabacalera Perdomo, S.A. was awarded the distinguished 2005 Cigar Trophy by The European Cigar-Cult Journal, Europe’s leading authority on cigars. The award recognized Tabacalera Perdomo’s EDICION de SILVIO® as Nicaragua’s ‘Best Brand’ and marks the second occasion Tabacalera Perdomo has received the top European honor for premium, long filler cigars. According to the...

Perdomo Edicion de Silvio...Vienna, Austria-based publication, EDICION de SILVIO® is “perfectly rolled to its tip, very fine, subtly cedary-sweet, velvety abundance of aroma and an excellent draw; very fine aroma texture woven into a velvety silkiness which is unfolding a whole spectrum of transparent tobacco finesse with a finely spicy sweetness of cedar; a somewhat lighter, perfectly balanced torpedo which sparkles in finesse.”

“Receiving the coveted Cigar Trophy again is a tremendous honor for me, my family and the people who take pride in working at Tabacalera Perdomo everyday,” said third-generation Cuban cigar maker Nick Perdomo, Jr. “I am grateful to receive this bestowment and truly appreciate the loyalty and support of our European retailers and cigar enthusiasts. For all of our customers, we strive to make the best cigars in the world.”

Recognized as 2004’s ‘BEST OF THE BEST’ by the Robb Report, Tabacalera Perdomo’s EDICIÓN de SILVIO® is a secretive blend of deeply aged tobaccos created as a tribute to family patriarch Silvio Perdomo. Each cigar is fastidiously handcrafted in reverence to Silvio Perdomo’s most cherished vitolas: ‘Robusto’ (5” x 54), ‘Double Corona’ (7 ⅝” x 50), ‘No. 2 Torpedo’ (6 ⅛ x 54) and ‘Salomon en Cedro’ (7 ¼” x 49 x 60). Fifty of each size are delicately stocked in a slide-top, perforated Spanish cedar caché surrounded by boldly fragrant ribbons of Spanish cedar (except ‘Salomon en Cedro’ which is exquisitely packaged in 24 wax-sealed, aerated cigar ‘vessels’). These shavings are meticulously hand-carved from the rich oily heartwood of the tree, infusing a delicate aroma and a distinctively elegant finish to each and every cigar. The wax-sealed cigar caché andPerdomo Cigars Spanish cedar shavings are then concealed under lock and key within a rustic “Spanish Galleon” mahogany tobacco chest. The savory all-Cuban seed tobaccos used for EDICIÓN de SILVIO® have been culled into a rich and aromatic binder and filler crop that Perdomo and his grandfather Silvio began aging before his passing in 1997 in large 50-year old vintage oak casks. The thick, time-honored vessels were discovered by Silvio and Nick, Jr. during their many journeys to Jalapa and obtained from a family that had owned a plantation there for processing and fermenting tobacco until the Sandinista revolution of 1979. Housed in a heavily guarded aging chamber on the Perdomo family production compound in Esteli, these distinctively spice-laden casks were used to house the special tobaccos created for EDICIÓN de SILVIO®.
