Not fit for your worst enemy
OK, so we got a bunch of German hard liquor for Oktoberfest-week-at-home (Covid-19, thanks), including a bottle of Stroh 160.
Each bottle we had a shot to taste it, and Stroh 160 gave the reaction "whoa! WTF!" from all of us, and I drink bourbon every week, sometimes 50% alcohol. But, 80% alcohol anything is obviously not to be drunk straight (unless you are trying to get drunk fast or kill yourself).
So, another bottle we got was Bärenjäger, a 35% alcohol honey (real) liqueur. That is very tasty, Stroh has a nice taste/smell, but the 80% alcohol is way too strong, so mixing 50-50 of each was very nice.
Bottom line, don't drink something like everclear-with-flavor and expect anything other than being knocked on your butt. In a mixed drink, I'd recommend it, because it brings a punch to the party, along with a uniquely tasty flavor.
It has a subtle butterscotch n spice taste, but you're immediately betrayed by 160 proof. It's been rare for me to drink this and not feel sick later.
Bought a bottle of Stroh 160 and after one shot, down the drain it goes. Awful and super strong glue smell to your nose and palate. Simply awful "rum"!
