Wrapper: Habano Oscuro/Nicaraguan
The My Father Le Bijou is one of my favorite go to medium to full bodied cigars on the planet. Top 5 in my book. Not only is the cigar great but it ages fantastically. This is a complex smoke and one of the first few cigars that I discussed with Amon. I had given him an aged My Father Limited Edition 2010 in about 2014/15 I believe. Don Pepin, Jaime, Janny Garcia are some of the most beautiful people I have ever met. They know how to make great cigars. The Le Bijou has this silky smooth wrapper thats unmatched. The binder and filler are peppery but not overbearing. The progression and smoothness that it finishes off with is impecable. In body and in strength this cigar builds up so you have to make sure you have had a full meal. Their product and Brands are strong and are always consistent. This was fun and special to be able to record this experience.
In this episode we talk about the My Father Le Bijou cigar, foot bands on a cigar also known as secondary bands, Grand Robusto, strong cigars and pairing cigars with wine.
