As I expected, Don Pepin did a great job in creating a cigar here that provides complexity and some very rich flavors. The cigar kicks off with some sweetness that is soon joined by earthy tones. Things get kicked up a notch when spicy pepper dominates in the second third. The pepper stays consistent until it gives way to a superb dark chocolate flavor in the final third.

I had faith that I would enjoy the Le Bijou 1922 Toro, and once it was all said and done, I was not disappointed. The cigar's complexity and flavor transitions were definitely enjoyable. It also looked fantastic and had a mostly solid burn. The Le Bijou offers some power without reaching the point of being overly harsh. This makes it an attractive choice for experienced cigar fans looking for a full-bodied stick to add to their smoking arsenal. Fans of Nicaraguan cigars would also enjoy it. The only downside of this tasty My Father selection is its price. At $10 to $11, it's a bit expensive for an everyday smoke. That's a shame, because it is something that I would not mind having on a frequent basis. Regardless, it's at least worthy of a single purchase for a special occasion. If you want to stock up on it, you can find the Le Bijou in packs of five or boxes of 23.

The My Father Le Bijou 1922 Toro earns a rating of 3.5 out of four stars.

Tatuaje Verocu Tubos

Pete Johnson of Tatuaje Cigars released the Verocu Tubos back in 2009. The cigar was an extension of the Havana VI line, and, as you can probably tell, comes in some spiffy tubed packaging. Both a Black and a Red version hit the shelves, but we will be concentrating on the Verocu Red in this review.

The Verocu Tubos is a Torpedo that measures 6 1/8 x 52. It's filler, binder, and wrapper are all made from Nicaraguan tobaccos, which gives it the distinction of being a puro. The cigar's production also takes place in Nicaragua. As far as strength is concerned, the Verocu Tubos is said to be full-bodied.

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.
