My Father Le Bijou 1922 Petit Robusto cigars are the ultimate tribute smokes created by Jamie Garcia, and dedicated by Don Pepin Garcia to his father. With an extremely hard to grow Pelo de Oro wrapper encasing a blend of Nicaraguan longfillers, you can expect nothing but savory flavors throughout.
What an incredible little gem. Great draw, lots of smoke, great burn, and enough flavor for a cigar twice it s size. Without a doubt, the finest petite robusto I ve ever smoked.
As a less than year newbie I have tried many brands and types but the full complex flavors My Father blends has won me over! Le Bijou is my favorite especially when paired with a nice bourbon it seems to help my less refined palette distinguish the progression of complex flavors throughout the smoking experience. I won t try to name the flavors but I do know they are awesome!
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.
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!!!
