Dated between 1972 and 1977 based on the tax stamp and capsule style.

Brite and lemony, green apple and fruit syrup. Very pleasant and it’s a funny feeling to be drinking a vintage yet spritely spirit. Solid vintage pick!
Sweet and medicinal after taste, but very subtle flavor. Smells like butterscotch.
I can taste deteriorating of the glass in each sip. It is a bit Harrrrsh to say the least. It kinda punches your tonsils like a heavy weight in the ring with chicken. If you can pinpoint the punch it’s a win, but good freaking luck!
Might be the reason so many people were into drugs in the ‘70s.
