New Hampshire retailer, Federal Cigar is adding a fourth vitola to its My Father Le Bijou Federal Connecticut line.  This cigar will be a 5 5/8 x 55 Grand Robusto.  The information was communicated in an email to customers.

The My Father Le Bijou Federal Cigar Connecticut is a retail exclusive to Federal Cigar.  This blend replaces the Nicaraguan Habano Oscuro wrapper found on the core Le Bijou 1922 line with an Ecuadorian Connecticut Shade wrapper.   The blend was originally designed to commemorate Federal Cigar’s 91st anniversary and was only available in a Cervantes vitola.   A few months later, the cigar was added as a regular production retail exclusive to Federal Cigars and the line was extended to three vitolas adding a petite robusto and a corona.

The My Father Le Bijou Federal Cigar Connecticut was our #29 Cigar for 2012.  All three vitolas scored a 93.

The email mentions the Grand Robusto will be available in May.
