It’s back and better than ever, folks!
The My Father Le Bijou 1922 Corona Extra 100 Años L.E. is a new take on the Nicaraguan puro made originally to honor Don Pepin’s father, José García Alayón. The man’s 100th birthday celebration is made with a somewhat different blend of tobaccos, but still all from Nicaragua. They were all grown on My Father's farms in San Rafael, Las Quebradas, and San José.
The 100 Años L.E. blend is brought together by a wrapper called “Habano Oscuro Oscuro.” It’s not the darkest ever but has plenty of color and richness to stimulate all the senses. The flavors of the smoke are classic Don Pepin, with black pepper front and center, a nice earthy core, and an intriguing hint of something like florals in the background. Some creaminess develops as the cigar returns from its bite. As all My Father fans know, it goes without saying that this smoke is a delight to enjoy, with a profile that is exactly what we’re looking for in a cigar from the legend behind My Father.
The My Father Le Bijou 1922 Corona Extra 100 Años L.E. is also well made, leading to a crisp smoking experience regarding burns and draws. This thing does exactly what it’s supposed to. It makes sense – Don Pepin, the teacher of teachers, is as skilled as it gets when it comes to rolling (and was legendary for his abilities there before his second act as an award-winning blender). He’s always there, standing behind excellent cigars in so many ways that all we can do is tip our hats to one of the greats and give him a “salud” as we sip on our whiskey or beer.
There are 1922 boxes out there for this remarkable production run. Acquire yours in time for Christmas. Don Pepin is the Santa we all need this year.
