Well this is awkward. I got this cake on a whim in the spring because it was still pretty cheap and I was willing to buy blind. I proceeded to kind of poo-poo it on Scott’s site as lacking in taste even though it did have huigan and qi. Busted it back out this afternoon to see if anything had changed and hohooo booyy it was nothing like my initial sessions with it. I noted only a very light watery-ness, and otherwise it was brimming with flavors, from tangy apricots, to smokey moss, and even some hints of leather hanging out in the background. No idea what happened to this one over the last ten or so months, but at least it makes me hopeful that Colorado-dry storage isn’t killing my cakes.
