    I thought that the Le Bijou 1922 were actually blended by Don Pepin as a tribute to his father. And the 1922 his father’s birth year.

    Is that correct?

    Thank you for clarifying. We are both half right if my facts are correct this time around. It is my understanding that Jamie created both, the first as a tribute to his father, the second to his grandfather. See below and please let me know if I am reading into this correctly. I do apologize if I failed in me research this time around. Thanks.

    “The original My Father blend was created by Jaime Garcia, Pepin’s son whereas Le Bijou was created in honor of Pepin Garcia’s father. If you enjoy spicy, full-bodied cigars then you should give Le Bijou a try as it is masterfully balanced. Expect long notes of pepper and spice with underlying earthy, cedar sensations all masked with light hints of sugarcane. The rich and dark Habano Oscuro wrapper creates an excellent aroma with enjoyable flavors of coffee and espresso noticable on the finish.”

    @njohnson Yes the original My Father was made by Jaime, and the Le Bijou by Pepin.

    Great review and I really liked the story that went along with it. It sounds like a fantastic time and maybe Uncle Bill will make it around more often.

    Who knows! All I know is that this is the best cigar I’ve smoked in a while!

    I just missed a deal recently to get a three of these. I am a big DPG fan and I think he makes some of the most outstanding cigars on the market today.

    Smoke one in my back yard today. Started out to strong for me, but did a nice turn around mid-way. Smell us fabulous to the snot nose like you said. Honestly, I would say it needs a bit of aging, but you story was a good one. Good smoke to share and made me wonder about where the heck my uncle Bob is at. May have to look him up after reading your story. Thanks.
