My Father Le Bijou Grand Robusto (5 5/8x55)
The Le Bijou 1922 features a beautiful band.
A dark, fat cigar that is dense and well made. It started with semi-sweet grapefruit citrus with subtle vanilla notes and black coffee, plus a ton of black pepper. The finish is surprisingly short with roasted almond notes and just a tick of vanilla thrown in for good measure. The draw is great and the burn after 3/4 inch is perfect. The cigar is full bodied.
At the midpoint there are no major changes to the cigar other than more vanilla notes on the finish, which is a little longer.
In the final stages the cigar still has semi-sweet grapefruit notes but they are somewhat subtle to the extreme black coffee notes and the pepper is still strong. The finish is fairly long with vanilla notes.
Final thoughts; a very good cigar that has some deep, dark black coffee notes with nice semi-sweet grapefruit and vanilla notes and plenty of black pepper. While I am a fan of rich, sweet citrus I still feel the regular My Father is a tick better than this cigar this is a very good addition to the My Father lineup.
