Advantages: Strong, bold flavor / Pleasantly warming
Disadvantages: Doesn't generally mix well / Rather potent
Like many people, I was first introduced to Jagermeister as a student. A herbal liqueur origination from Germany, Jagermeister has something of an undesireable reputation, thanks in large part to the popular union bar staple, the Jager-bomb. However, a small measure of Jagermeister, preferably served ice cold or even over ice, makes for quite a pleasant tasting spirit, with a distinctive, smooth flavor and a pleasantly warming sensation that will fill your chest for a good few minutes. I have also found it can be used to enhance the taste of drinking chocolate and several chocolate-related dishes, although one should only use a very tiny amount for this. Otherwise, the strong taste of the jagermeister will begin to overpower all other flavors. Make no mistake; this is not a spirit for mixing like rum or vodka. Jagermeister is best enjoyed by itself in small measures, but it is certainly one of the nicer spirits I have had the pleasure of drinking, once this is understood.
Summary: Very strong but quite pleasant to drink while ice cold.
