Hey Don,

I am pretty involved (as the token white anglo saxon) in a Turkish musical ensemble here in Sydney and have also recently been inducted into the joys of raki...I have come to the opinion that it is not a drink you have alone in contemplative bliss, but a drink purely for the purposes of getting pissed in large social groups, I can see no other reason for drinking something that has a lingering smell akin to methylated spirits.

I find the colder the water, the more bearable the taste...but as you aptly describe..ugh

Just got a liter of Raki from Turkey by hand carry.

It's pretty awful. 45% abv. Smells bad, tastes bad. Good louche though!

Ugh.
