Since the original message, my correspondent has tasted the stuff. He writes:
Please be on the look-out for this stuff. I'm curious to know how widely it's distributed.I am sorry to have to tell you that the taste is just awful. It gets that (as best as I can describe it ) that high in the nose taste, that a cheap blend has. That is from the gns. I will just have to switch brands. Drink a little too much of that, and you will smell it all day tomorrow. Reminds me of blended Bourbon Supreme.  Luckily, Ancient Age, is available.
