I can’t turn down novel liquor. I suppose one could have a worse vice, but I impulse buy the strange dusty stuff on the back of the shelves all the time. Dr. McGilligcuddy’s Mentholmint Schnapps has ended up in my hands on several occasions because of the old thyme style label of a man with a dog but never made it to the checkout counter because of a fear I had; namely the fear that a whole 750mL would go to waste. My spendthrift ways of not wasting food would kick in if this stuff was minty rubbing alcohol and I’d be stuck with a semi expensive bottle of 1800s cure all snake oil. When I saw an airline bottle I finally gave in to the mystery.
To solve this one for you- it’s really really good, as long as you like a fresh mint kick. I was expecting something along the lines of toothpaste and got a fresh and exciting dose of menthol that lingers in the mouth and throat. It perked me up and made my throat feel fresh and tingly in the same vein as an Altoid. It’s sweet and slightly viscous, and makes a fine post-rockstar-bender breath freshener/hair of the dog (if there is no Jack Daniels straight from the bottle laying around, that is).
Bottom Line: B+ for a lightly alcoholic, sweet, refreshing drink thats great on the rocks
