My Father Le Bijou 1922 Torpedo cigars are handmade in Nicaragua. While the original My Father was made secretly by Don Pepin's son Jaime, Le Bijou is Don Pepin's homage to his own father, born in 1922. French for "the jewel," Le Bijou lives up to its billing!
As a brand extension to the My Father line, which was made in honor of cigarmaker Don “Pepín” García by his son Jaime, Le Bijou (“The Jewel”) was in turn created by Pepín 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.
Notoriously difficult to grow, Pelo de Oro wrapper leaves (dubbed Nicaraguan Habano Oscuro) cloak a well-aged, full-bodied blend of Nicaraguan tobaccos. A sweet, creamy start gives way to some spice and bold tobacco flavor.
My Father Le Bijou 1922 Torpedo cigars are 6 1/8 inches with a ring gauge of 52 and come packed 23 to a cedar box.
