     I TASTED them all with Andrew Stover a couple of weeks ago and was quite impressed, they are all so different, I had my favorite but that will change depending on the time of day or night I drink them, and if there is a meal involved, indoors or outdoors, the weather?!? So many variables, the temperature, too at which they are served. Come try one of each, have fun, explore, watch the movie 1973, a whole 'nother world back then! People are musch the same though, see which character you prefer?
