At a staggering 90% ABV, this remarkable quadruple-distilled spirit should NEVER be consumed neat and only one 25ml measure should be consumed in any 24-hr period. Useful as a float for cocktails. SILVER MEDAL (Best in Class) winner, 2006 International Wine and Spirit Competition.
This surprised me. Found it in an liquor store in Massachusetts. Was expected something like Everclear and was happy to get something much better. Kept it chilled in a freezer (it does not solidify) and added a chip of ice in a shot glass. Really not bad at all (for you Americans, that means "it is really very good"). Mind you his US offering is only 160° proof. It is a lot easier on you than strong unflavored Vodkas.

The 90% stuff should not be drunk neat. Nearly pure spirits like strong póitín, moonshine or 190 proof Everclear will damage the tissues of the esophagus and other parts of the gastrointestinal tract. Mix it, or get the 120 or at most the 160 proof version if you want to drink it straight.

Tried this at the Limburg Whisky Fair. A fantastic vanilla/bluberry after taste. Not at all harse or "explosive".

Next to the real Poteen ( which you can even compare) It has a nice after taste. I say go for the real thing first, but that is illegal so the next best thing is Knocking hills.

Why only one 25ml measure per 24 hours? That amounts to 2.25 UK units - well within the recommended limits for an adult. The body doesn't know it's stronger, once it's been absorbed - it's all about the amount of alcohol you consume, not its initial abv.
