    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.
