As a lover of Green Chartreuse, Stroh, and Krepkaya, I heartily recommend it. Not for the bland palate, however. This should be piped to one's house, like water

My neighbour gave me this to try as I had a tummy upset. It works!!! An aquired taste but I like it. I think it is a herb called Gentian that gives it the bitter taste but if you can get used to that it is a warming concoction that is definately good for the tummy! Watch the alcohol content though!!!!!!!

Absolutely wonderful... I fell in love with Unicum at the first taste. It's like... nature, distilled and perfected and bottled, a pure blast of wild forest, ambushing the tastebuds and making one feel that one is lying on leaf-litter beneath a starry sky... unique and beautiful.

A Hungarian recommended Unicum to me; I bought a tiny bottle in Budapest. Hungarians always told me it was used for stomach upsets. I tried it for that at home--think I actually had anxiety. Anyway, one small liqueur glass is sufficient. I find the taste just fine and my stomach felt better. I can't imagine making "a night of it" with Unicum. It's not for that!

Helped polish off a bottle of this stuff at a mate's hungarian night. Was sent home in a taxi wearing slippers and carrying a bucket. You have been warned.

Unicum should not be seem as a drink - more of a medicine. Taste approximates to the following: take 1 smelly polyester football/rugby sock - fill it full of old cig ends and steep in Veno's for a couple of years - add some meths, squeeze into bottles and sell as Unicum. However, if you are feeling a bit peaky it is like drinking the magic potion in Asterix books - I always have a bottle in the booze cupboard and have a shot a day in the winter. I am 97 years old.

It tastes like fortified ear wax. Revolting stuff. I have a bottle at home that I get out to make guests leave

First drank this when I spent some time in Miscolk. One of our party said it was "what the men sipped", so we gave it a try. It tastes like a mixture of cough medicine and liquorice - not too bad. Took a few bottles home as novelty presents for friends and family (entertaining to see the reactions on people's faces!.
