This bottle was clearly over the hill and no where near as nice as when it was at its peak. Though it was past peak, there were some redeeming items, it was really just mothy tertiary notes and some share acidity.
Glad to have seen the base through its entire evolution and glad that this was the last bottle.

In its prime a few years ago, it made grown men promise the world for it. It sang beautifully.

TE, Thanks for letting me know. I have one bottle of this in my cellar, and plan to consume it this week if possible...
