N: Very strange nose, theres lots of smoke and a little cured meat to go along with it. Normally such a combination I'd like, but this one also has a chemical component which attacks the nose. It's a bit sinister. P: A total smoke bomb, just pure smoke, but its like burnt trash. Hot and dry. F: This is the smokiest thing I've ever tasted. Bleeeeeacch, can't get it out of my mouth. No idea what's going on here. It actually makes me cringe. Yikes. Who was the demented person who bottled this?
This smells weird. It has this new fabric smell to it, something you'd smell walking into a rug/ furniture store. It gets slightly sweet with notes of sour plums (umeboshi) as you acclimate to the fabric"y" overtones. It's pretty F****ed up on the palate too. Very ashy, sooty and grimy. The finish tastes kind of dirty. This is what I imagine licking the ash off of burnt wood or eating dirt and chalk would taste like.
F: New plastic, new leather, new pleather, poorly integrated vanilla note, metallic, ashy, and garbage. Eternally and unmercifully long finish.
NOT GOOD. It became amazingly chemical as it dragged on. Repulsive in the extreme, but it reminded me of some of my plastic toys when I was a kid. In a weird way that association saved it from being an F. Nostalgia aside, it's a really terrible drink. It'd also make an awful potpurri.
