Meet #20   |   25/02/12   |   Hosted by Russell
For our second American night, we thought we'd branch out a bit and try a triple grain challenge - corn, rye and wheat!
Other bottles sampled:
#36 Mellow Corn | SSWC review 20a
#37 Rittenhouse Rye | SSWC review 20b
Smells
Solvents and synthetic fruit flavours but also mulled wine and Turkish Delight. Like you know its gonna be good, but really bad for you. Pear and almond tart hanging off a beech hedge over a sea cliff. Tasty treats and lethal peril. Oooh whats that hmm boiled sweet thats been lying in the sun for a week. Hmmm.
Tastes
I think Ill have the honey, mint and orange peel salad, with lime pickle on the side. And the dark-chocolate butterscotch banana split for pudding. Theres freshly cut-grass and car tyres on the menu too. That vinaigrette made me really sad I had the salad.


  Hello my lovelies.. prepare to be liqufied.
Finish & Comments
Were trying to think of something mints? Pickled onions? Jambalaya? The solo from The Final Countdown by Europe? The problem is it just aint corn whisky!
