We couldn’t really do much today since it was raining pretty heavily. We just hung out at our guesthouse, enjoyed the scenery and did some work. It cleared up a bit in the evening so we made our way further down the main road to one of the few restaurants where I hoped to find an interesting drink.
I couldn’t find anything at the restaurant but at a nearby shop sold small bottles of local brandy, so I bought a bottle of Herman Hansen Mansion House Brandy. It was $7, rather expensive and didn’t look really nice. The 40 percent brandy had a clear amber look and a rather mild and sweet vanilla aroma with a hint of alcohol. Not as bad as I thought. Until it came to drinking it. The taste was just horrible. It didn’t have much of a flavour but a strong rubbing alcohol taste that filled your whole mouth with a disgusting almost chemically coat. After the second sip my gag reflex acknowledged the bad quality of this shit. To top it off, it even had a long lasting disgusting aftertaste. Absolute shit and for sure not worth buying.
