I present to you the Morph Quicksilver by V Energy Drink. A beverage that has a rather unique feature. Probably the first I've seen since Orbitz (remember that one?).
To be honest, I was hesitating having this drink. It's partially because my dear wife, Aliesha, raised an interesting point - "Would you want that stuff swirling around your stomach?" Well, considering half the stuff we consume in this day and age, it's a good question. But I couldn't help but wonder what the flavour was like. So today, the curiosity won the battle. I bought my first bottle of the strange new brew.
The first mouthful = wasn't that impressed. This may sound a little weird coming from an energy drink review, but I compare the initial taste to a sip of wine. Yes, you read that correctly. By the way, I absolutely hate wine. The flavour's not that great, and it always leaves a horrible aftertaste in my mouth. A similar experience was had in the first sip of this drink. For a moment, I wasn't sure if I wanted to finish it.
But then something weird happened... The flavour changed...
After the off-putting experience of what seemed to be mimicking wine, I found myself tasting...passionfruit??? I was so confused! What kind of drink has a wine aftertaste BEFORE the good aftertaste???
I seriously have no idea of what to make of this drink. It does my head in. But I can say, though, that it's not a drink that I would consider buying a second time...which is a lie, actually. I bought a second bottle to bring home with me from work. However, I didn't say that I was going to drink it. Allow me to explain...
If someone can hold onto a bottle of Orbitz since they bought it in the 90's, then sell it on eBay for a more-than-retail price, then who's to say that I can't do the same with this one in 10+ years time? I personally don't think this drink will be around forever, so think of it as a future investment.
That's pretty much all I can say about this drink. Out of 10, I'd give it about a 4 or 5. In "Trying Stuff" terms, about Half a Thumb or One Thumb Up.
If you're curious about it, go ahead and grab one while it lasts. But it's not one I'd recommend if you're easily confused.
