Mad Dog 20/20 - Blue Raspberry

This is not wine this is pure alcohol…

Review: First off, I have to say that it is a definite chore just to drink this “wine“…It is pungent with the smell of alcohol, tastes like pure vodka, and looks like a melted blue Slurpee.  It isn’t Red Velvet horrible, it just really tastes like alcohol, and that is not what I was looking forward to. Come to think of it, most wine actually tastes a lot better than harder liquor. This drink doesn’t get the title of “wine” in my book at all. As you swallow this blue concoction, the initial taste is refreshing and then the aftertaste is something you wish you could have avoided. Even with my cup half full, I fear I can’t stomach the rest of whats left…we’ll see. I am just forewarning you, this wine is not for beginners. Drink at your own risk.

Mad Dog 20/20-Red Grape Wine

Actually didn’t taste half bad.

Review: Huzzah!!! Another good tasting red wine!!! (I haven’t had much luck in the past with these darker red wines). But, as a whole this wine is sweet, cheap, and hits the spot with some good food. I got perpetually smashed by drinking the MD 20/20-Orange Jubilee wine and this one, which at the time was a good thing until I got sick the next day which was no fun. BUT alas, I will not bash the wine for getting me sick. It has a definitive taste that reminds me of spiked punch. I would probably recommend this wine to newbies and avid wine drinkers because it’s pretty tasty. The only drawback is the aftertaste that rides for a while on the tongue after consumption. It is like the alcohol kinda sticks to the taste buds and won’t let go. So just be weary.

Yes, this is wine. Surprising…no?

Review: I actually drank this wine a week ago…with two other wines…and it was not a good idea. I was sicker than a dog the next day, which makes the name more…meaningful. (Yeah, lets go with that). Needless to say, for the amount of alcohol you get for the $4 you spend, this wine can hit you pretty hard depending on how much you can swallow. The first drink begins with a great reminiscence of Sunny Delight with a light kick. Then the alcohol comes to the surface on the second drink and any thereafter. I can say that it literally tasted more like a badly mixed screwdriver than actual wine by the time I was wasted. BUT, the point is to get drunk RIGHT? So as a whole, it’s O.K. for anyone tight on cash and you can’t spend the actual money on a decent bottle of wine. But if you have run out of wines to try, this is a definite new experience.
