I think this dos equis meme best describes my introduction to this ink.
Even the red in the XX is appropriate, considering the variations that come with Noodler's Antietam
. I'm usually not fond of red. It reminds me too much of seeing marked up test papers and essays. Looking for a nice ink for autumn, Noodler's Antietam really hits the spot with its rich saturation and lovely variations of tones and shading. It flowed very nicely from the Visconti Van Gogh steel nib that I used and had no trouble with cleaning nib creep, as it would sometimes happen with other Noodler's Inks.
Yes, the date on it is pretty old, but better late then never.
