The night started with a Turkish wine called Dömisek, some sort of muscat blend. The wine had been picked up in Turkey, so none of us could really understand the label. We had doubts from the beginning, as it was obvious the wine was pretty cloudy. These suspicions were only confirmed by the aroma emanating the moment I pulled the cork, which, after stumbling for a few moments, I could only describe as chicken soup. Yep, that's right, good old, Campbell's chicken soup. It tasted more or less the same, with a hint of tangerines and tuna can water. We knew we were in for quite a night.
Everyone had their own idea of "unusual" so there were wines from different places (like India or Turkey). Wines from old vintages, and wines that maybe shouldn't really be called wine. But the one rule was that we all had to try each one. And we did. I didn't enjoy all of them, but it was certainly a good experience. Notes below, judge for yourself.
