I thought this was an excellent smoke. While I usually shy away from dark wrappers I wanted to try this highly rated cigar. It is a full bodied smoke and I got leather, coffee and chocolate. More leather earlier and more chocolate later. What really impressed me about this cigar was it was powerful yet smooth throughout. Reminded me of the Cubans 10-15 years ago. Construction and burn were very good but not perfect. Overall I am impressed. I am down to the last inch and it remains a very smooth smoke. If you like full bodied cigars you may like this one!
I have smoked a lot of my father s. This WAS my favorite, until I bought a box. The cigars were wrapped so tight they had absolutely no draw. I have attempted to smoke 3 cigars and have not finished one, because I have to keep lighting it every 30 seconds. Very dissapointed this is a my father. Padron` would never box a cigar like that.
These my Father Le Bijou's never fail to impress. I smoked a bunch of the peteite ones and I didnt want them to end. So I bought some of the larger Grand Robustos. These are just amazing cigars. One of my favorites.2 1
This cigar was tasty from beginning to end. It burned evenly had a solid ash. The aroma was incredible. I had people tell me mi cigar "smelled good." All in all I really enjoyed this cigar immensely.2 0

One of the best cigars I've ever had the pleasure to enjoy. Tremendous flavor and aroma. Flawless construction and appearance. Loaded with flavor and not too powerful; seemed to be not as strong as the original "My Father" blend. I picked up hints of Cocoa, Coffee, Spice (cinnamon/nutmeg-ish), and Cedar. An absolutely wonderful cigar.1 1
Just bought a box, excellent smoke, my favorite stick so far0 0
First review I've ever attempted. been smoking cigars four years now and have had some winners and some losers. I thought I'd try this torpedo after reading the reviews it's received. WOW!!!! I was not disappointed. The smoothest most flavorful cigar I have ever smoked. Up to this point the Padron 44year anniversary was the best. But for the difference in price, I can afford this a little more frequently. The spices are not the normal spice flavors I have experienced in the past. The balance and smoothness were consistant all the way through. Had to bring out the old alligator clips so I wouldn't waste any of this fine cigar!! I think this cigar can be smoked by all smokers, new and old. I won't bore you with the flavors I detected, try for yourself and see what you think. Absolutely wonderful!!5 4
Love the JJ series by Pepin, which I smoked shortly after the Le Bijou stick, however from the second I fired up the Bijou I never stopped talking to "myself" about how great the cigar was and quickly forgot about the JJ series. If you like a spicey, sweet, earthy cigar that is packed with flavor this is a must try. My only critique is that the Le Bijou did not burn evenly and a good amount of touch-up was required. Nevertheless, I have found another go to cigar!!!1 0
I can definitely see why this brand won cigar of the year by Cigar Aficionado in 2015. This cigar offers classic Nicaraguan tobacco notes of coffee and chocolate, but with a really nice, deep richness. The aroma is gorgeous, the smoke is thick, and the construction is fantastic. There are definitely some transitions as well, and it offers medium strength with a medium to full body. Definitely a favorite1 0
Had one the other night,just received them couple weeks ago, couldn't wait. Consistant burn lots of smoke. Taste started off spicy, mellowed right off through the end. Glad I purchased these.1 0
I have been smoking for only about two years but I had the honor to try this cigar recently on a business trip to DC. I was just blown away. I don't really do all the: start, finish, overtones, and all that "naming" stuff. All I can say is, for someone like myself, who mostly smokes in the 5 to 8 dollar range. I have made a special budget in my finances to purchase a box of these cigars on a regular basis. It is easy to see the passion and love Don Pepin has for his father and family name. Get one today, you wont be disappointed!0 1
