Tasting Notes

First Tasted at Meeting No. 38 in July 2015

Jason A.  •   •  4.0

Aggressively bitter, bordering on unpleasant. Once it's diluted the spirit opens up and transforms. More sweetness comes out and the herbs take over.

Chelsea  •   •  3.5

Having my sound of music moment climbing the Swiss alps

Justin  •   •  3.5

A complex nose, medicinal and herbal. Slight combination of bitterness and sweetness. Water turns this into a everyday drinker.

Michael  •   •  2.5

A bit sour and medicinal.

Meru  • 

Dill, green spice, brine, like anise pickle juice; after adding water gets a creamy character to the nose; creamy pleasant taste, bitterness at the back of the tongue on both sides
