My Father Le Bijou features a brilliant looking Ecuadorian-grown Habano Oscuro wrapper that encapsulates a mix of Nicaraguan long leaf tobaccos for a full-bodied and rich experience that will leave your palate salivating for more.
All cigars produced at Tabacalera My Father incorporate traditional Cuban characteristics, from the entubado style bunching (folding the filler tobaccos in an accordion fashion) to the triple caps used at the head of each cigar. These traditional Cuban methods enable the cigars to burn and combust perfectly, which in turn creates intense amounts of complexity followed by a smooth and enjoyably long finish.
If you enjoy spicy, full-bodied cigars then you should give Le Bijou a try as it is masterfully balanced. Expect long notes of pepper and spice with underlying earthy, cedar sensations all masked with light hints of sweetness. The rich and dark Habano Oscuro wrapper creates an excellent aroma with enjoyable flavors of coffee and espresso noticeable on the finish.
This cigar stars off with the signature blast of pepper everyone has come to associate with Pepin. It has a cedar quality with pepper on the front end, and a caramel sweetness that reappears off and on. In the final third it remains consistent and the pepper turns to cayenne. As an experiment my wife and I side by sided this Vitolo with the Pepin Blue in toro grande. I expected to develop a preference, but both cigars went head to head, each in their own style and way. While this smoke appears more full bodied, it is not. They are equal in strength but deliver it completely differently. This smoke is more angular and spicy, while the blue was creamier, rounder and presented a oaky woodiness as opposed to cedar. We couldn't decide a preference but concluded that they are both just fabulous smokes in their own ways. We need more of both in our humidor!

These cigars are smooth. They have a nice calm flavor to them. They aren't harsh at all. They taste great. I love my father cigars and these so far are my favorite from them. I love the quality in which you take care of your cigars. They are delivered on time and fresh. They are sealed nicely in a custom bag accompanied with a humidor pouch. Wonderful service everytime. Thank you.

Le Bijou and Flor de las Antilles
Aug 08, 2015
Le Bijou.... always a treat! This was my second box of Flor de las Antilles and they were somewhat disappointing: varied in flavor and strength quite a bit. The first box I bought were great.
Why He Likes It: My Father Le Bijou 1922 is one of the finest blends from Tabacalera My Father. This beauty is draped in a flawless Ecuadorian-grown Habano Oscuro wrapper, which imparts succulent notes of cedar, earth, and spice. From start to finish, this blend is complex and satisfying—like father, like son.
Petit Robusto (4.5"x50) What a flavor bomb! If you're searching for that hearty, full-bodied maduro that gives off a rich character with little sweetness, then pick up this size. The short and stout 4.5"x50 frame allows for an effortless draw that exudes tons of thick smoke with many competing complexities that swirl around your palate. Many peppery, spicy flavors are present from head to foot while the finish is rich and full. A great, well blended cigar.
Churchill (7.0"x50) Perfect for those looking for that spicy Pepin flavor and expect at least 90 minutes of enjoyment. The size burns long and stead but slowly picks up in strength, providing a light, medium body up front before transitioning into a heavier character. The finish is very long with very little to offer in terms of sweetness.
Toro (6.0"x52) If you prefer a maduro with more sweetness than pepper or spice, then go with the Toro size in this line. Although you'll get the same hearty aftertaste found in the other sizes, the Toro leaves sweeter nuances on your palate and finish. The blend varies in complexity from head to foot with an emphasis on richness rather than spice. Enjoyable.
