Unfortunately this bottle didn't age as gracefully as my last one. Reductive notes were seriously over-pronounced. It may have been cooked. It did open up with better notes after about an hour but it still was not perfect.
This hit the right spots for me. It's at a point in its development stage where I found almost no flaws. Deep dark fruits, dried fig and plums intertwined with sweet spice, cinnamon, clove, tobacco ash and tar, soft flavors of game on a dusty palate and mid-length finish. Really interesting & quite enjoyable. Looking forward to my next bottle!
