A personal revelation really. Enchanting mix of animal, mushroom, gas/flint, mint notes layering the hugely aristocratic fruit in the nose. Flavor follows and further expands the nose in a superbly logical manner. Overall sense of completeness and balance is uncanny. So many layers densely packed together for an intensely loud whisper. Brilliant!
