My Father Le Bijou 1922 Toro Cigar Review
I did this fantastic stick a couple years ago and another viewer sent on in. I wanted to see how they compare! This 6×52 stick features a buttery smooth dark chocolate wrapper with a firm pack, a couple small veins, tight seams, triple cap and rich chocolate and pepper aroma. First light reveals a perfect draw with plumes of thick medium-full bodied smoke giving chocolate, leather, earth and pepper on the draw with a full finish that builds with pepper and spice but stays oily and rich till the next draw. The first third stays very much the same just diminishing the leather a bit, keeping the complex profile with perfect construction. Hitting the 1/2 way point 35 minutes in, the ash holds on solid, the chocolate gets creamy and the pepper dies way down through the finish, making my mouth water. Ending at 1:15 the last third burns slower also ramping up the strength just about matching the body. The chocolate has faded just leaving a creamy smooth earth and tobacco with an oily wood finish. Construction was flawless! Thank you very much to viewer Scott Fisher for sending this in for review!
