I've got a bottle of Alt-Bordeaux today and I'd like to compare it with Yama-budo, so here it is.

 

The camera does a better job at capturing the red hue of Yama-budo than my eyes. With my bare eyes the two are somewhat similar, although the difference is still quite visible: Yama-budo is more vibrant, has more red hue; whereas Alt-Bordeaux is much more muted and has a vintage look. Yama-budo is like grapes (just like its name "Mountain Grapes") and Alt-Bordeaux is like red wine stain.

And finally, let's not forget the amazing golden sheen of Yama-budo:

Great comparison, I absolutely love R&K AB!

I've always loved yama-budo but I think I'm now partial to Alt-Bordeaux. Thanks for a nice comparison!

Great comparison! Did you get AB to sheen on any of the papers?


Fountain pens are my preferred COLOR DELIVERY SYSTEM (in part because crayons melt in Las Vegas).

No, I don't think AB sheens at all.

Wow, for both! I know, that I will have Yama-Budo soon, but now, I need to put Alt-Bordeaux to my list too.

Sad that I missed this when you posted it.  Great review!

 

I have always liked Yama-budo, but I must say that I am very partial to Alt-Bordeaux.  I prefer the way it shades and the subtle notes in it.
