Review - My Father Le Bijou 1922 Gran Robusto - 92/100

The My Father Le Bijou 1922 series was created by Jose "Pepin" Garcia to honor his father who was born in 1922. This medium to full bodied gran robusto is a fine example of the quality My Father Cigars has to offer today.

The cigar looks and feels great. Unlit, it gives an easy, leathery first impression.  When lit, the first draws reveal a very creamy flavor profile which develops some cocoa, leather and oak in the first third. Going towards the halfway mark, the creaminess remains, but other flavors start to manifest. The cigar takes on some spice with rosemary on top. Floral notes arise with some sweetness from fruit - like a delicate French perfume.

All the way up to the end, the cigar is very smooth and creamy. The last third adds to the cocoa, spice and leather, but otherwise remains on the same path from the second third. The finish is mild and short with some hints of bread.

Overall, an interesting cigar, which absolutely is worth a try. One of my personal favorites from My Father Cigars.
