Construction and Specifications
Made from an all-Nicaraguan blend of tobaccos, the My Father Le Bijou 1922 delivers the rich, complex flavors that smokers worldwide have come to expect from premium Nicaraguan cigars. What truly sets this cigar apart, though, is the use of a habano oscuro pelo de oro wrapper leaf. Spanish for "hair of gold," pelo de oro tobacco is fairly uncommon, despite being exceptionally flavorful. This is because the plant itself is more susceptible to disease than other tobacco strains, making it a somewhat unreliable and difficult to grow crop. In this particular cigar, though, the incredible flavor is well worth the extra effort required to cultivate pelo de oro.
The My Father Le Bijou 1922 is available from Corona Cigar Company in the following vitolas:
Beginning with a balanced blend of pepper, earth and a light, chocolatey sweetness, the My Father Le Bijou 1922 at varying points also includes notes of leather, raisins and meat. Calling this blend satisfyingly complex would be an understatement, as there's more than enough going on to hold a smoker's attention from start to finish. The cigar is reasonably full-bodied, though it never becomes too overpowering. In terms of construction, you'll find that this cigar burns sharply and evenly, and no unpleasant hot spots emerge to disrupt the carefully balanced flavor produced by the unique pelo de oro wrapper.
