This week, My Father Cigars, Inc. will begin shipping the newest size in its Le Bijou 1922 line.
It’s not just the latest Le Bijou, but it’s also the newest limited edition release from the company. Like many My Father Limited Editions before it, the cigar is a 6 1/2 x 52 toro extra packaged in in individual coffins with each box containing 14 coffins. Production is limited to 4,000 boxes of 14.
Suggested retail pricing is $23 per cigar or $322 per box.
As for the blend it uses the Le Bijou blend, which features an Ecuadorian habano oscuro wrapper over a Nicaraguan binder and Nicaraguan fillers including the famed pelo de oro tobacco grown by the García family. Pelo de oro is a tobacco strand that has been banned in Cuba because of its propensity to develop blue mold. The García family grows it on their farms in Nicaragua and is oftentimes used for the company’s special projects.
Janny García, vp of My Father, told halfwheel the company expects to begin shipping the cigars by the end of the week.
