My Father 1922 Le Bijou Torpedo cigars, which translate to The Jewel in French, is a tribute from Don Pepin Garcia to his father born in 1922. Using a blend of Nicaraguan longfiller tobaccos wrapped in an extremely rare Pelo de Oro wrapper, this is one cigar you won't want to pass on.
This is a great cigar. With a perfect draw, it started with a lightly peppered full body then transitioned to a smooth, creamy, rich tobacco with a light coco and coffee. The finish was clean and light. A real pleasure to smoke.
If you are looking for an unbelievably unique cigar experience look no further, I won t compare the complicated flavors to another cigar. It has its own identity due to the amazing soil that the growers have meticulously cultivated each leaf in. Starts off spicy, tastes of dense wood, coffee and mother nature.. once the cigar starts to heat up and the resin has begun to make its way towards you get ready to left off into the flavor bomb! Chocolate, carmel, plum, dates, much more that I can t describe, Try for yourself... A must have for the serious smoker, Godspeed!
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!
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!!
