I'm in love with this one. Strong hint of grass in the aroma and very crisp and clean finish.

This was so weird, I had to buy it... buying it, the nose is like a plant. No disguising that. Go out and smell mowed grass and you smell Skinos. But the taste is pretty good. It's herbal and sweet and pretty good. Then I mixed it in a Skinos Sour with fresh lemon juice and dash of bitters and it was outstanding. The world's most perfect hair of the dog drink this could easily replace the Mimosa. Highly, highly recommended.
