Had a chance to taste the Imperial again (@Tasttoe Kampenhout). I had to think of The Iron Man-movies. Not of the cold steel hero himself, but of his sidekick, the lovely Pepper Potts. This dram is not a flamboyant superhero. It does not scream for attention like Tony Stark/Iron Man does. It is, however, the quiet force behind the superhero. It is the dram that takes care of business in a seeming effortless way. It hovers there, on your palate, and then suddenly, when it is most necessary, it hits you: fierce fruity spicyness that tickles you down to your toes and then lingers for a while, content to have blown you away. Next, it goes about its business as if nothing happened. Others put on a big show to be noticed, and yes, once in a while they save the world with some big flashy heroics. This one doesn`t need to be loud; it saves the world quietly, but it does so everytime. I like superheroes. But I often like their sidekicks more. QED.
