My Father Le Bijou 1922
Grand Robusto · 5.62 × 55 MFLBGR
As a brand extension to the My Father line, made in honor of cigarmaker Don “Pepín” García by his son Jaime, Pepín in turn created Le Bijou (“The Jewel”) for his own dad, who was born in 1922. Handmade in Nicaragua, these deep, dark beauties contain aged long fillers jam-packed with intense flavors. With a spicy binder and a Habano Oscuro wrapper, the combination provides a full-bodied and unique Cuban-style smoke with a delightful lingering aroma.
If you are a devout Don Pepin fan, or you enjoy incredibly delicious full-bodied cigar brands then you should definitely try Le Bijou.

Fragile construction, great stick
Really enjoyable stick with the typical creamy pepper core flavors accented by dried fruit sweetness. The foot smoke smelled heavenly. The construction was a bit fragile; the firm pack made the wrapper and binder susceptible to damage. The first inch or so was burning very poorly due to this problem. Overall, a good stick that I would smoke again.

Fantastic cigar. 9/10 easy. This thing smokes like a chimney with great notes of spice throught. Probably top 5 smoke output of anything ive ever smoked. Between this and the flor de las antillas not sure which i loved more.

Very peppery and earthy, with a blend of other flavors and a nice complexity. Great cigar all around! Great burn and awesome draw. This is a perfect cigar for chilling with friends and listening to music. Definitely a great stick by a great company, will buy again!

I was out on my porch on a beautiful spring day smoking this. It was full flavored and reminded me of sitting around a camp fire telling stories of simpler times. It burned evenly and long as I puffed away watching the sun set. I would recommend this with the nature sounds and you have time to reflect.

Beautiful oily wrapper and a gorgeous band. This cigar has big time flavor, it starts out with lots of pepper as most pepin cigars do. Then a sweet earth flavor comes in. The spice later returns. Conduction was excellent. A must try smoke!

This was another gift. I liked it but I'm not sure if buy it for myself. It really is a great cigar, no touch ups during smoking and it never got bitter even towards the end. All in all a solid rep of My Father.

This cigar was gifted to me by a friend. I throughly enjoyed this cigar. The construction was great and it had thick smoke throughout the entire cigar. I enjoyed the woody flavor and was able to pick up some cocoa or chocolate in the profile as well. This will be a cigar I put in my humidor on a regular basis in the future!

Bigger is better. The Garcia family makes some of my favorite smokes with this being one of the best. Incredible pepin spice they are known for with those delicious creamy coffee and floral notes. Perfect burn, construction, and price.
Worth a try

The presentation of these is so beautiful I felt worried that they were trying to hide something. Once you get in the first third you get a great pepper taste and a perfect draw. Also has a bit of sweet molasses but taste. Buy one.

This is by far my favorite cigar I've ever smoked. Full body, full flavor, this cigar kicked my ass and loved every second of it. It was full of spice and wood and coffee, and the spice stays throughout the stick which, for me, is always a huge plus. While a bit pricey, I could not recommend this cigar more.

My Father Le Bijou 1922 is from the grand wizard of the cigar world. His genius is unmatched. This cigar is a mirror of the mad genius at work. Beautiful construction, great taste it's definitely worth writing home about. Write home to dad about these

A great cigar to smoke, all around. It was flavorful (not too strong, not too bland either). The draw was smooth, but there was enough resistance to make it enjoyable. This was a solid smoke. Nothing exceptional, but far from average.
You should smoke this

There's some nice oil to the wrapper on this one. Smells very nice, a lightly fruity tobacco. Maybe raisin? Prelight draw is tobacco with a hint of molasses. First third is peppery tobacco that milds out after an inch. Slight earthy mineral taste at the end of the draw. Second third is that consistant pepper taste with that earthiness kicking up. That raisin taste picks up a bit too. Nice smoke output. Last third is heavier on the pepper than anything else. Finishes nicely. The stick is a medium-full. All in all a great stick that smokes very nicely. Fits the flavor profile that many will find entrancing. Worth a smoke.

This Cuban esque one develops its pepper tones harmoniously and an uncommon lavish earthiness. Both characteristics hold and alter subtly throughout the length. Fresh sweet flavors shine through like finding a precious stone within the layers. Well worthy dessert flavors that I will not reduce the experience of you finding are within to a bright degree. Jose Pepin Garcia in honor of his father Don Pepin Garcia. Beautiful. Bravo.

Definitely a good go to cigar. Medium - full in bodied and dominated by classic Garcia pepper and earth, thanks throughout enjoyed this cigar. I wouldn't recommend it to w beginner but if you're looking for someThing familiar with a bit ofbite this would be right up p your alley.
Full body, full flavor!

Premium cigar here. Big pepper blast subsides to rich hearty flavors of earth, pepper, leather, and cocoa. Lots going on here. Full bodied and a touch over powering by the end, but if you're into full bodied cigars, this one is right in your wheel house. Not for the early in the day smokers.
