Preface is I’ve been dying to try a bottle of this for ages, given its reputation and how hard it can be to find. And it’s nice. Pretty strawberry nose and ruby color, good concentration and some interesting herbal notes. A bit round and subacid for my taste and a noticeable bit of RS that hasn’t really integrated. Overall character is still very primary, not a whole lot of complexity yet. I think this could be in an awkward phase.. I do believe it will be a wholly different beast in time.
