Review and Tasting

Sampled on 31/03/2013

Appearance

Crystal clear.

Aroma

Pungent, reminiscent of grappa but with notes of hairspray and pear drops.

Taste

Fiery with fruity pear notes and cracked black pepper heat.

Aftertaste

Incredibly lasting. Black pepper and pear re-emerge but the dominant note is sour.
