    • Cool Cato. That was one of my very first reviews from a few years ago, so I see those notes as a bit underwhelming in scope. I actually have some of that bottle left so I might update that notes in a bit more detail. Fortunately have a spare bottle to be opened way down the track and bought way cheaper than what they go for now.
