The My Father Le Bijou 1922 is an extension of the My Father line which was created by Jose Pepin Garcia’s Son Jamie to honor his father Pepin. Well Pepin created the Le Bijou himself to honor his father, Jamie’s grand father. Le Bijou means The Jewel and the 1922 is Pepin’s father’s birth year. It is a good looking cigar. The wrapper has a dry matte finish to it and it looks like a carved piece of dark wood. This is another cigar that sports 2 cigar bands. They are ornate, and beautiful, and large which is odd looking on this petite robusto as most of its length is covered up by the two bands. Though dual bands have become a bit of an annoyance for me lately as they have become more commonplace; on a positive note the bands on the Le Bijou always come off very easily and I have not had one yet that damaged the wrapper. Because this vitola is so short and the bands are so large, you really need to remove one if not both of the bands before you smoke it. Again, annoying but not too much so since they do come off easily.
