3/5 Very aromatic. Quite different than any other drink I've tried in both aroma and taste. Rather smooth for 45% abv. I tried it neat, on the rocks, and in a cocktail. Neat it was okay, though a little better on the rocks. As I had only a small amount to work with, I tried it with cherry brandy, making a Bleeding Heart. It nicely cut the sweetness of the brandy and the scents of the two married well. Worth a try if you're interested in experimenting with something very different.
