I bought some Slivovitz recently. I posted about it, mainly because I got hammered on about 2 T, and my friend who is a professional bartender asked what my analysis of the flavor was. I told him that my analysis was that after one sip, I had flames coming out my nose.

I'd describe the one I tried as having the tangy aroma of fermented vomit.

Yes! That's actually an excellent term for it.
(I'm the professional bartender in question, and I wrote a post on tasting notes for Slivovitz. Of course, my "fermented vomit" idea may be colored by the fact that the single time I ever got sick drinking was off of the stuff.)

Good to know I didn't just get a dodgy bottle.
Personally, I think that stuff explains a lot about the Balkans ;)

Of COURSE you got a dodgy bottle. It's just that they don't make non-dodgy bottles.
I actually like the stuff, and have come up with some recipes that make it taste good.
Oh, God, the Slivovitz. It burns.
