I'd mentioned prior that I'd never really liked Vikt much in the past, largely because of the vegetal / mineral facets mixing with the resins to give it a bit of syrupy vibe. I must say though, that applying the old version in order to compare it with the new, it's somewhat apparent that my tastes have evolved a bit as I didn't find the original to be quite as rough this time as I remember it being a couple of years ago.
It's funny - I was revisiting the old Vikt in anticipation of the new one, and my experience seems to be similar to yours. I didn't find it as syrupy or cloying as I had remembered. In fact, it did actually have more breathing room than I thought (at least in the first two hours or so, before it subsided into that vegetal goop) and I can imagine the direction he's taken for the new one. It sounds very promising. Thanks for the review, DI!
