Intense and pretty. Dark fruit with intensity and drive. Mint on the edges, licorice... what power. This is awesome. So primary and gorgeous. A very good bottle.

Tasted blind, from two combined bottles. Scarlet reddish tawny color. Doesn’t look overly old. Unique nose. Notes of cranberries and figs, cola, violets and some open field brush. Rich, expands in the mouth. Amazing perfume. I had no idea what this was but someone else deduced and nailed it with their guess. I can see why this producer/bottle is in high collector demand.

Tasted this three weeks ago — can't stop thinking about it. The best Vega I've ever had. Still vibrant. Slight fruit development. So much length. 🇪🇸 🙌🏻

Bright AND deep with a super sexy finish. Very alive and well. A true pleasure and honor to drink. Luscious red fruit bordering on black cherry.
