Scents of robitussin. Burnt caramel. Apple cider. Washes my mouth out with soap. Slices tongue. It may sound like I hate this, but it's really delicious. Enjoyable, probably in a cocktail with vermouth.

Dusty but alluring nose. Fruit salad perfume. So light and delicate, but I wish it was fuller on the palate. Agree with Todd that this is a bit of a letdown. Did anyone say apple?

Interesting. Good, a little sulfery, really weird finish, almost dirty. Like dirt. Kinda disappointed for what I would expect the price point.

Beautiful apple nose and floral beginning. But I'm slightly disappointed by the slight porcini mushroom finish.

Disconcordence; a perculiar onionlike finish.
Greg • 11/17/2016 • 2.5
Sweet, harsh, hot, astringent, thin, quickly turning bitter and dry; faint notes of chamomile on the short, flat finish.

Smells like apple jolly rancher. Starts softly and finishes with soap and garlic and falls off quickly.

Super light on the tip of the tongue but then quickly grows bitter and unpleasant. The handsome bottle and 21 yr age statement are beguiling. Best for use as a practical joke.
