    TRYBOX: Anyone Try Them?

    My local Heaven Hill rep just dropped these on my desk:


    While there's a thread about these, there are no tasting notes (at least that I found). Has anyone actually tasted them?

    Haven't tried these, but I did have the opportunity to try some white dog at BT. It was surprisingly drinkable, but very simple. No complexity. I would be interested to know how HH white dog compares.

    I have been scouting my local stores for these, no luck so far. Will report back when I find some because I will be cracking them open ASAP.

    Guess I have something to try after coaching my son's baseball team tomorrow night, huh?

    Will report back.

    I saw a certain SB member today and he had choice words for this stuff. Basically he picked up the bottle AND STARTED YELLING AT IT.

    Yelling encouragement or complaints?

    I am wanting to try them too. Especially the rye. Rye white dog is not tasty to me at all. Totally differnt stuff.

    He said something like, "It burned a hole in my stomach" ...

    Actual quote was much funnier ... I just had never seen someone pick up a bottle and yell at it. I thought it was an appropriate gesture and I will add it to my repertoire.

    This is true. I yelled at it. Mixed with Alpha King...was kinda pallatable. Rough sauce. Smells like corn tortillas to me. It did rip the hell out of my stomach.
