Tasting Notes

First Tasted at Meeting No. 65 in December 2017

Brad  •   •  3.5

Tongue burn and then flavor disappears fast. Bit of cranberry.

David S.  •   •  3.5

Think, rich and tasty with a slight burn on finish. Water really opens it up and smooths our a few rough ends.

Elliott  •   •  3.0

She’s a fiery beast. Possibly made in a bathtub. Tough to compare to the previous gem, but a little tough to wrap my tongue around.

Chris  •   •  3.0

Spicy. Anise. Soothes my ailments. Tingle tongue.

Michael  •   •  3.0

Holy moly

Erik  •   •  3.0

Spicy, better with water

Darren  •   •  2.0

Easy, sweet charcoal scent. Distractingly hot without water. Smells kind of like new band aids. Flavor improves a lot with water.
