The oldest church in Cincinnati is Old St. Mary’s (cir. 1841). Ornate, trimmed in every style you can think of, cold in the winter and filled with those who treasure the tradition of this wonderful ritual. A resinous incense blend, redolent with polished wood of the pews, the beeswax candles, and offertory fruits. Unisex and perfect for cold weather. Dry, resinous, and grown up.
This ages exquisitly! Midnight Mass at Old St. Mary’s just gets better and better, mellower, more beautifully resinous. You would be well advised to buy two bottles if you like this one, lay one down and don’t dig it out for at least two years. Unbelievable.
