99 Apples Review – Sounds Good, Right?
Hopefully you reached this 99 Apples Review before you tried it. I might have just saved you. 🙂 Reviewing foods and drinks can be extremely tough considering everyone has vastly different tastes. As for this review of the alcoholic drink 99 Apples, I think it will be a different story. If for some reason you are the minority and disagree with my review, feel free to post a comment telling me what you think. 😉
For around $16 you get yourself a 750 mL bottle of 99 Apples, 99 Berries, 99 Bananas or whatever other “flavors” they’ve made. Seems like a steal, right? Don’t get your hopes up. If I’ve learned anything about alcohol it’s that you NEVER buy the cheap, bottom shelf stuff. Yes, $16 for 750 mL is considered cheap when we’re considering any kind of hard alcohol.
99 Apples is an 99 proof schnapps, meaning it has 49.5% alcohol content, even the best and most expensive alcoholic beverages don’t necessarily have great “taste” at that level, but this one takes it to a whole new level. I don’t think I’ll ever fully understand why it’s named Apples. If it had even a slight apple flavor I think I’d give it a pass but this stuff doesn’t resemble even a minute apple taste. Honestly, the name should definitely be changed ASAP. 99 Burn or 99 Battery Acid would suit it much better.
The Bottom Line
I wouldn’t recommend 99 Apples or any other “flavor” to anyone. If you’re able to down a shot of this and keep it down I’ll give ya props, one thing I will say though is you have terrible taste in alcohol. I tried this once and will never try it again. The bottom line, stick to the top shelf. 🙂
