Like it better tonight than I did last night when I opened the botttle (Of course with the way Arizona was losing to the Ducks, I'm not sure I would've enjoyed my PVW 20 ) Last night I would've taken some EC 12 over this in a heartbeat. Now I'm not so sure. Subtle seems to be the best way to describe it. Although the spice stays on the lips for a long finish.
Between the wish and the thing the world lies waiting.
