This is a digestif. It is very good for an upset stomach with at most a quarter teaspoon on a sugar cube. I can not imagine drinking it straight. It does not taste like green chartreuse and there are easier ways to get a buzz.

This is exactly the same as Green Chartreuse except it's even stronger at 71%, that's nearly 150 proof !! Great little tipple but not for the faint hearted! It's so strong that you can only buy it in these 10cl bottles. So my tip is keep an old Chartreuse bottle, buy 7 of these little tigers and then pour them into your spare bottle. That's what I've done! Way to go!
