The nose has green grapes, cough syrup and some tinny, metallic notes. The palate is light with some minty flavors akin to mint Chloraseptic spray, with a numbing mouthfeel to boot, and some tropical fruit notes, including banana and papaya. The finish has an artificial mint taste (if you've had a Disneyland Mint Julep, you know what I'm talking about).

 

The flavor profile is all over the map and it ends up as sort of a light mish-mash with some unpleasant notes. This is no way to celebrate a birthday.
