The Shot

For lovers of getting drunk, this is the perfect shot for helping you find that heavenly euphoria you so desperately desire. You can really taste the higher thujone content in this bad boy, as it definitely slaps you with a shock to the system. You're probably going to want a chaser with a shot of dabel to calm the brutality for a chance to taste the botanical base of the beverage. The aftertaste lingers. There's no stopping it. Ever. But to be honest it is a pretty good shot, unless your boring and only like liquor shots.

 

The Bar Test

The bar test really pulled dabel into line and let it hit you with some flavours, as opposed to the straight shot. It tastes eerily similar to the classic black jelly beans we have all tasted and many have hated but still followed by a swift kick in the teeth for an aftertaste. For the more adventurous amongst us, however you get a kind of euphoric sweetness while chugging, which is erradically replaced by a horrifying burning sensationally dulled by the gentle, creeping desire to expel the liquid back out of your body and the friendly aniseed taste we all know and love. Some may feel this is similar in taste to drinking straight ethanol, unfortunately for them: we still loved it, so get yourselves a bottle or twelve. 

 

Recommendations

Big night, hard night or fancy night: dabel is really the perfect drink for any occasion. We would recommend shot for a hard night though, don't need all that bloating from all the coke before you die in a few hours.
