I expected writhing pain, uncontrollable cramping, dogs running away from the sound of the bottle being opened et al., but I am shocked. It is unique and yes, she's a bitter girl, but I actually quite like it. I think I'm going to be keeping this in stock out here in Upstate NY. Really enjoying it!

Jeppson's Malort 750ML
Jeppson's Malört has the aroma and full-bodied flavor of an unusual botanical. Its bitter taste is savored by two-fisted drinkers. - Producer
This is the worst liqueur I've ever tasted. 5 stars.
This is not a pleasant drink. But in the misery of drinking what is probably last year's snowmelt from Chicago highways, you discover a new kind of inner peace - only for that peace to be torn apart by an aftertaste so singularly unpleasant, it might as well be a Cubs game. 10/10
What can you say about Malort that hasn't been said? It is spectacularly horrific. It's more bitter than your ex. It combines the delightful flavors of Anise and Anus. Actually we drink it neat at room temp and we like it. Don't buy the hype. It's not for undeveloped palates, but if you're far enough down the path to appreciate Anchovies and Kimchi, you just might love the stuff.
Now I won't say this is the best tasting liqueur I've ever had. Having said that it's brought me so much joy ever since buying a few bottles. Only now do I truly understand the concept of schadenfreude, at house parties I provide my guest with the opportunity to partake in it's "full-bodied flavor of an unusual botanical." Never letting my guest drink alone I've grown accustom to the taste, but their reaction rarely disappoints. I'm from Oklahoma so it's not available around here and most of my friends have never heard of it before I introduce this fine product into their lives.
This stuff is fantastically awful--we had to order some to try. I look forward to finding interesting cocktails and using it in recipes (a tiny drizzle on top of pumpkin soup, in place of sherry?) Thanks Liquor Barn for your easy shipping to NYC!
I bought Malort because it has the reputation as the WORST tasting liqueur, "turning taste buds into taste foes for generations". I am a little disappointed that it really isn't that bad. Wormwood bitterness, so what?

I had this years ago when in college and had been looking for it the past few months as a nostalgia thing when I saw a post online about it. Yeah .. it's the same and a very acquired taste. I enjoy it, my wife does not.
This stuff is not for the faint of heart. I use it with gin and vermouth for a satisfying cocktail. So glad to find a place that ships it to NY.
