Take a sip, and following the initial full-bodied sweetness enjoy the bold spicy flavor that spreads through your mouth. Guaranteed before now you’ve never experienced a flavor quite like this. Just one drink and you’ll be hooked, and wanting to recommend it to all of your friends.

I’ve seen this bottle for ages but finally grabbed one. Pours orange with sweet nose of plums. First taste is sweet plums and pear maybe hint of balsamic. Then the pepper hits and for me pretty heavily. First small glass was tough but seemed to mellow considerably. The peppery heat lingers on tongue while sweetness stays on lips. Kinda fun but notbsure I’d want more.

Bottle shared with Linh, Vi, Ken, Thi and the rest of the Vuongs during Chinese New Year 2013. Pours a golden orange body with no head or lacing. Aroma is not too spicy upfront - mostly dominated with sweet fruit and flowers. Mouthfeel is medium with notes of smooth, mellow fruits followed by lots of spice and pepper. Very interesting sake - almost reminds me of some of the more heavily spiced Kuhnhenn meads. Nice.

Bottle that we brought to Andy’s New Years Eve party/tasting/Fluxx tournament. Pours a clear orange tinged color. Super sweet aromas, pear and plum on the nose. Quite sweet, at first, then picks up some chili pepper heat. Good amount of spice. Very odd. I imagine that this must be what the fabled Purple Possum Habenero mead would taste like if it were good.

TPSA. WOW, this was odd. Color is medium gold, like a brandy or a light bourbon. Nose is mostly plum with some other fruity undertones. It starts out sweet, then the pepper kicks in -- it’s not chile hot, I’m guessing the pepper is either black pepper or Japanese sansho pepper. Burn is pleasant without being over the top. The finish maintains the sweetness. I think I liked it, but it was quite the paradigm shift; I’m still getting my head around it.
