My Weekend Cigar – Oct. 23, 2017: My Father Le Bijou 1922

MY WEEKEND CIGAR: My Father Le Bijou 1922 Cigar Review

By Gary Korb

A cigar that hits on all cylinders – and that ain’t just an overused cliché – the My Father Le Bijou 1922 Toro offers a bold, yet ultra-smooth smoke brimming with layers of dark, sweet and spicy Nicaraguan flavor. A true “must-smoke,” if there ever was one.

My Experience: I don’t usually smoke cigars in my house, but for this My Father Le Bijou 1922 Toro, I made a rare exception. For one, it was a chilly weekend; secondly, this cigar has such a great aroma it’s like lighting a scented candle. (And besides, I don’t live with anyone who is gonna complain.) Beyond that, this Nicaraguan puro is superbly well-made, and that shimmering Habano Oscuro wrapper is so gorgeous you don’t know whether to devour it instantly or spend an entire hour admiring it. Starting out sweet and creamy, the cigar transitions into a full-bodied smoke that reveals layer-upon-layer of earthy, woody and spicy flavors. It’s also one of the few cigars I’ve smoked down to a quarter-of-an-inch nub on more than one occasion, which is why the My Father Le Bijou 1922 Toro is high on my all-time favorite cigars list.

Suffice it to say . . . if I was going to make a cigar to honor my father I’d put my heart and soul into it, too (the Le Bijou line is named for Don Pepin’s father who was born in 1922). Geared for the more experienced cigar smoker, you can taste the love in this cigar. It pairs well with just about any drink choice, and is every bit as stunning whether you smoke it indoors or out.
