"Weird, Bitter"

same light caramel color, but pink when viewed in quantity.

opened 72 hours.

has the grassiest nose of the bunch.

slight orangey and lemon zest on the nose followed with some sugar.

spirity thin brown sugar with some lemon grappa. Actually that's exactly what t his tastes like. Someone took some lemon grappa and added a bunch of sugar to it.

like drinking limoncello if you like that sort of drink.

not a fan here.

82/100

Heh, maybe it's lemoncello at 72 hrs, but I'm a fan of good lemoncello and at 0 hrs would have much preferred it to the 77 :)
