Meet Deets
Meet #48   |   29/03/14   |   Hosted by Russell
Russell went full hippy for Earth day. Organic whisky, no lights and freaky candles.. it was widely reported there was some summoning later on too.
Smells
Sweet. Sweet like silage. And other tastier treats marzipan, treacle and raisins, boozy fermented fruits and stewed apricots. But its also a bit acrid. Watch out theres petrol and white spirit and matches going around too.. FIRE!!
Tastes
To some the fruitiness continues into the taste cherries and oranges and stewed fruits again. But its a bit strange and theres more depth to it too salt liquorice, aniseed and bitter marmalade. Theres something else going on too, its kind of dry and tangy, like ironmongery perhaps? Or flat Tennents and skunk? Sounds like a dangerous combo wait theres a BBQ as well FIRE!!!


  The freaky candle really set the mood for an unusual dram..
Finish & Comments
All that fire calls for a sprightly, lemony finish that lingers, like an Elastoplast being ripped off. Its S-U-B-Z-E-R-O.
Cost
~£51 (70cl)
