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. 🙂
It really isn’t as bad as you make it out to be. I agree that it is bottom shelf but i consider it more of a triple-sec. Something you add to a drink not drank straight up. What sucks is that you really can’t readily find good apple schnapps in the US.
You don’t drink this straight it’s a best in mixed drinks. Try with pineapple or orange juice, I like it best in frozen drinks ( daiquiri any flavor) use in place of liquor given on directions. Don’t be fooled the taste is tropical but it will sneak up on you.
Hi there! I believe that it’s a matter of taste. I personally do get that Apple flavor.. I use to mixed it with orange juice and didn’t like it. I buy those little bottles ,one shot ones and drink it straight. . I like it like that but it does sneak up on you. Happy end of 2015, Have a great 2016!! Cheers!!!
It’s not as bad as one would think. Take the 99 black cherries , cherry juicy juice, apple juice and ice and it tastes just like fruit cocktail. It will knock your ” black censored block here ” if you are not careful with it. CAn’t be scared all your life. Just try it.
I use it in Apple pie or to snazz up apple cider. It does have a strong burn like cheap vodka if you drink it straight but if it’s mixed with almost anything it goes away. It’s high proof mean use just a little and it goes a long way.
I tried this for the first time last night. This drink did burn when it went down but it honestly wasn’t that bad. I did 15 shots of this stuff and I was still fine. I am only 137 pounds and I don’t drink often. The last time I had drank before then was a month before. I had no hang over and was great and up by 8:30 in the morning. I had started drinking st 3:30 am and stopped at 6:00.mthis isn’t as bad as you make it out to be
I drink Platinum vodka, and love Apples 99, I drink about 4 a day. No chaser. I think it tastes great!
