  • Very spicy and delicious. Not particularly bitter — ☆☆☆☆☆
  • Excellent. I was afraid of it before I tried it, but it's amazing. — ☆☆☆☆☆
  • Classic sour combo of flavors. Unexpectedly nice. Lots of christmas spices. Added scant 1/4 oz aged rum for a little more roundness. Taste merits a 4 but it is a unique enough flavor that people will probably love it or ha — ☆☆☆
