Mixed with stomache acids after a garlic rich Italian meal and the result was a skin peeling volatility I have never experienced before, or since. Grappa in general is a questionable drink, but free (aka cheap) Grappa is dangerous. Jim
You are so right-cheap grappa is not even fit with which to start a barbecue, but at the other end of the scale it is treated with true reverence by aficionados and attracts prices that compete with old cognac and armagnac for siliiness. My dad in fact has a small collection, some here in Britain and some stored safely in his mate's cellar in Milan. However, even the high-end stuff leaves me unimpressed to drink but some of the fancy bottles are very attractive.
