Thoughts: Yeah I’m the chump that would have bought this even if it stunk because Blade Runner. I am happy to report it is an enjoyable blend that has much better feel and finish than the regular black label. It’s a shame that she won’t live (in this case long on my shelf), but then again, who does?
