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.
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!6 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
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
