Straight to the nitty gritty: no doubt, this is good. But the thing that doesn't make it great is that it is too sweet for me.

Now that Raul has that off of his thinly sculpted sized 38 chest...

Right when Raul cracked this bad boi, the aroma was a hell of a surprise like getting a Nintendo 64 on Christmas. Bourbon, vanilla, chocolate... Like Raul was touched by an angel, or a Victoria's Secret Model, really.

Let's move on, shall we?

Even if she is devilishly beautiful, if she's too clingy, that's definitely a flaw. And with this beautiful beast, is a touch of sweetness that is a bit over the top for the Raul man.

Everything else is pretty much Thanksgiving gravy - actually, it's a bit thin in the mouth, but Raul has said his peace.

Umm, peace!
