Nose - lime zest, limeade, grass, apple skin, black pepper, vanilla, sour grain, dry floral notes, green lollipop, mild to moderate ethanol burn. Taste - green lollipop, underripe apple, lime juice, sour grain, floral notes, black pepper, mild to moderate alcohol bite, finishing medium short with lime candy, sour grain, and grassy floral flavors. Lime flavors and aromas are present, but take a backseat to sour apple and a floral perfume note. I’m also getting a strong flashback to being in the dentist’s office as a child and picking out one of those cheap, green lollipops. Once you find that note, it’s hard to ignore. Overall this isn’t great, but I like it much better than the Mandarin expression. Still this is meant to be a mixer, but it’s absolutely not undrinkable. I’d rather have Jim Beam Original, but could see drinking this alongside standard Absolut and not having a strong preference between them.
