Was it good? No. Was it terrible? Also no. I shared this one with several other people, and one person actually liked it. Even said he would drink it again. It has this almost salty/earthy quality to it that I could almost embrace, but when push comes to shove I would not voluntarily drink it again without a good reason.
It doesn’t taste exactly like teriyaki sauce, but you get enough of that soy/sugar/funk to guess what you’re going against. The shot glasses were actually a nice method of consuming it. It’s not something you want sitting on your tongue for too long.
Ordinarily I would hit this with a strong 2, but since once of my friends liked it (and went back for another shot) I’m going to bump it up to a 3 out of 10.
