myfathlebijpic1We are kicking off the weekend today with a couple of reviews that center around some cigars that offer plenty of complexity. Let's see what the My Father Le Bijou 1922 Toro and the Tatuaje Verocu Tubos have to offer.

My Father Le Bijou 1922 Toro

The Le Bijou line from My Father Cigars is yet another creation from the wonderful mind of Don Pepin Garcia. Its received high ratings from critics and is said to be in high demand, especially among more experienced smokers. Don Pepin created the cigar in memory of his father. Just in case you are wondering, Le Bijou is French for “the jewel.” Now that you have a little background on Le Bijou, let's light up a Toro and see what it's made of. If it's anything like other Pepin sticks, it should be great.

The Le Bijou 1922 Toro measures 6 x 50. Other sizes in the line include the 4 1/2 x 50 Petit Robusto, 5 5/8 x 55 Grand Robusto, and 7 x 50 Churchill. The cigar's filler and binder are made up of tobaccos from Nicaragua. Completing the composition is an Ecuadorian Habano Oscuro wrapper. In terms of strength, the Le Bijou is listed as being full-bodied.

If they had beauty pageants for cigars, the Le Bijou 1922 Toro would be one of the top contestants. Its two decorative bands really stand out and are filled with ornate graphics. The top band showcases the My Father Cigars logo, while the one beneath it has the Le Bijou 1922 label. Both bands have a heavy dose of gold coloring that look great against the very dark Habano Oscuro wrapper. The wrapper is rather toothy and has a dark chocolate tone with a bit of an oily sheen. A few minor veins are visible. The triple cap is done to perfection, but that's no surprise when you consider that Don Pepin is the man behind the Le Bijou. Gently patting the cigar up and down reveals that it has some give to it. There is a pre-light aroma of sweet chocolate that really gets my taste buds going. The cold taste, meanwhile, is cedar.

Once I finally put the Le Bijou Toro into action, it burns well. The draw is easy and the volume of smoke that is produced is impressive. The gray ash is long and solid. The burn does get uneven a couple times, but its nothing that cannot be fixed with a quick touch-up from the lighter.

I had the pleasure of smoking a My Father Le Bijou 1922 Toro just about an hour ago. This is by far the best cigar I have ever smoked so far. It started a bit nutty and a bit spicy. It is a real full body cigar and I am glad that I had it after dinner. I had the pleasure of smoking two top rated Cuban cigars this month (Romeo Juliet short churchill and Cohiba Siglo V). I am sorry to say this as this might piss some people off, but I found the My Father Le Bijou 1922 to be superior in taste and construct to those two Cuban cigars. The construct and oily texture was similar to the Romeo Juliet short churchil.

I can not say enough about this cigar and I advise anyone who is reading this comment to try one. I bought a single cigar from a local cigar shop in Reston, VA for about $10, but my God it was worth every single penny I spent on it. I give it 12 out of 10.

Every humidor should have a box of these beautiful cigars.

:-) I have to agree that My Father Le Bijoux this is just an outstanding cigar! The flavors of chocolate and spice couple with the rich character of the cigar makes for a wonderful and enjoyable smoke. i have smoked many Cuban cigars and this is as good as or BETTER than any cuban i have smoked. If the embargo were lifted tomorrow, I would buy some Cubans to be sure, but I would still be purchasing this cigar.

I smoke the Cuban Partagas Lusitania and MC # 2 Torpedo. The Le Bijou is as good as the Lusitania, which has been my favorite cigar for many years. The Garcias have done a great job, and Jose Ortega, does a great job representing the product.

Speaking from years of experience, the Le Bijou is better from many Cubans, although I never attempt to compare

SPEAKING FROM YEARS OF EXPERIENCE, THE LE BIJOU IS BY FAR BETTER THAN MANY CUBANS ALTHOUGH I DO NOT AND NO ONE SHOULD COMPARE. THE TOBACCO AND SOIL ARE DIFFERENT.
