My Father Le Bijou Limited Edition Ships Next Week

For the sixth consecutive year, My Father Cigars will be releasing a limited-edition cigar. But unlike the company's past small productions, this year's version is a variation of Cigar Aficionado's reigning Cigar of the Year.

The Le Bijou 1922 Limited Edition 2016 is a 6 1/2 inch by 52 ring gauge cigar that is a play off of the Le Bijou 1922 (the Torpedo Box Pressed vitola was named the 2015 Cigar of the Year).

My Father Le Bijou Limited Edition

The 2016 Le Bijou 1922 features binders and filler from Nicaragua, including some Pelo de Oro, a tobacco varietal that's difficult to grow, but renown by cigarmakers for its combination of strength and sweet flavor. Whereas the original Le Bijou 1922 uses Nicaraguan wrapper, the Le Bijou 1922 Limited Edition 2016 is covered in Cuban-seed leaf grown in Ecuador that is oscuro, or very dark, in color.

Only 4,000 boxes of the limited Le Bijou 1922 are being produced, each holding 14 cigars. The limited cigar, which will retail for $23 per stick, starts shipping to stores next Monday.

Like all My Father cigars, the Le Bijou 1922 Limited Edition 2016 is being rolled at the Garcia family's My Father Cigars S.A. factory in Nicaragua.
