The French Collection Cardinal Mazarin

What does this band and the Polo logo have in common?

Apart from the oversized band this is a great looking cigar. Very festive.

There is scent of chlorine from fresh with a slight metallic taste once lit, which is more common than I thought.

The first third consists of white pepper and cedar with a clean laundry scent going on. All the while the burn is impeccable with ash falling at the 30 minute mark.

I have to say I can’t relate with many tasting notes but citrus sparkling soda is bang on. This flavour perfectly compliments the mix of cedar oak and barnyard, ending with an ash drop right on the hour mark.

Last on the menu is trail mix, a fruity nutty concoction which is the perfect ending to this remarkable cigar.
