Where and when: purchased 3/04/09 at BevMo, Oceanside, CA
Scent: vanilla and spearmint. Smells a bit like the Velamints I used to steal from my mother.
Color: deep garnet
Taste: minty, vanilla-ey. Not red, though. Very nice-mild, complex. Mildly sour aftertaste, but not citrusy. Imagine a cherry-spearmint breath mint and you're close, but better than it sounds. Oddly perhaps a slight meaty delayed aftertaste.
Quaff rating: 4 out of 5. Pretty nice.
Cough rating: 1 out of 5. Would only be a problem if you resented Velamints.
