    Re: Aventus batch numbers, part 2

    Y01 is definitely one of the brighter batches. It's not as robust as Y11 but is more complex than U11. It is a step up from U01 in terms of performance and overall smell imo.

    Best for longevity is the X21 and Y11 batches.

    They all have great pineapple imo. U11 and Y01 are very pineapple forward, almost to the point where thats the only note you notice.
