At first glance, the Verocu Tubos makes a good impression. That is, once you remove it from its flashy red tube. Cigars in the Torpedo shape are always nice to look at, and the Verocu is no exception. The wrapper is dark and oily. It also has a rather rough appearance which should please fans of toothy cigars. There are two red bands that sit near the head. The top band bears the Tatuaje name, while the one below it lets you know that you are smoking a Verocu Tubos. The red bands definitely stand out against the dark wrapper to produce a nice aesthetic effect, if you are into such a thing. There are only minimal veins present. Soft spots are nonexistent as well. The cigar has a cedar aroma prior to lighting, and its cold taste is spicy.

Once it's in action, the Verocu Tubos exhibits a solid burn. The draw is just right, while the ash is solid and light gray in color. The burn stays even for most of the smoke, with the exception of one time where it began to stray. It managed to correct itself, however. Re-lighting is not needed at any point.

As we get into the flavor department, it can be said that the Verocu Tubos offers a good dose of complexity. It begins with a bang of spice and lets you know that it's not playing around. The spice dominates the first third and is joined by a bit of cedar. The second third offers a lot of rich coffee. The final third has some spice, but is highlighted by chocolate and leather that last until the end.

The Verocu Tubos certainly did not disappoint. Its a solid cigar overall and continues Tatuaje's tradition of quality stogies. The Verocu should appeal to experienced smokers who want a cigar that is full-bodied and full of flavor. Fans of the Tatuaje brand will obviously want to try it as well. I recommend lighting up the Verocu Tubos after a meal, as it does pack some punch. It is a tad pricey at around $11 per stick, but you get what you pay for. You can also find it in packs of five or boxes of ten.

The Tatuaje Verocu Tubos earns a rating of 3.5 out of four stars.

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.
