Review and Tasting

Sampled on 23/01/2012

Appearance

(batch 002, bot No. 1071) Clear, pale wasabi green.

Aroma

Formidable, clean, wasabi, horseradish nose.

Taste

The promised wasabi flavoured palate also has the rhizome’s heat, though not overpoweringly so.

Aftertaste

Long, not entirely pleasant finish with lingering bitter, rooty flavours. One for mixing in Bloody Marys rather that sipping.
