While I managed to wash this putrid liquid from my glass, its stain will taint my memory until the end of my days. While I try to be considerate that there are those whose palates differ from mine, I refuse to believe that there are people upon this earth that willingly and recreationally consume this. I added the remainder of the sample to some nice coffee as suggested, and I feel that it is my duty to travel to Colombia and apologise to those who worked hard to pick and roast those coffee beans. I would recommend trying a sample, so that your tongue may know rock bottom, and that you may be comforted in the fact that you have known the depths of true despair, so anything you consume from this point onwards will be at least several times better. Thank you for reading, and be careful out there.
Might just not be my thing. Herbal, very anise-y (wouldn't be a fan at the best of times), and very medicinal. Dandelions, in a bad way. Maybe that floats your boat but I couldn't even finish my sample.
Very unique and interesting. There's no oak anywhere to be found. The nose is citrus, rose petals, and plum. The palate is dense thick citrus peel oil, lavender, rose, and intense licorice. A smooth finish is floral with more anise and herbs. Good but complicated.
It smelled like shoe polish to me. Perhaps I do not have a sophisticated enough palette for this spirit. I’ll steer clear of this in the future. Maybe some will enjoy it more than my tasting party did.
When you're tasting grappa you have to know what you're in for. Plenty of it could pass for paint remover and is barely suited to be masked in a strong espresso. But this is a well rounded sipper that tastes of the grapes. Fine stuff.
Right from the beginning this drink presented a very heavy "Oranges" flavor to me. I slowly sipped the drink in an effort to allow the proper mixing/dilution of the ice and Jacopo Poli to see if perhaps the overwhelming Orange flavor would somewhat subside. It did not and I cannot recommend this presentation. I would not purchase again.
Odd and definitely different. Wasn't my favorite. Wasn't the best on the nose but did taste better than it smelled. Had a slight heat and spicy profile to it, definitely carried itself with the consistency of a wine. Decent but just not my preference.
