I went with some buddies to the corner store and copped 2 of these. The korean guy suggested them to me and said "You wanna get high, drink this shit and smoke some weed". I also bought a OE tall boy. This wine was pretty shitty and hard to get through. But when I finally got through with it I had a good buzz. I decided to drink the OE tall boy on top of 1 and a half bottles of WIR. The buzz resulted in an overload. I got a weird buzz, it wasnt a fun buzz or regular buzz that I normally get. I ended up passing out on the couch. 6 outta 10 for this bitch. I cant think of anyone around here who really drinks this, no one.

I just polished off this bottle and have never had this particular flavor before. I was pleasantly surprised. I was predicting something like the MD "Red Grape Wine" but this doesn't taste at all like that. It was much sweeter and smoother than the MD.
I like Wild Irish because it produces a nice mellow buzz relatively quickly without a harsh taste. This wine definitely did that. I'd give this one a 4/5 for taste and a 4/5 for buzz factor. Probably wouldn't buy again because I prefer the Wild Grape flavor but "Red" isn't bad.
P.S. Why does Wild Irish Rose have to be (at a minimum at least) 50 cents to $1 more than other ghetto wines?

A mighty big bottle of strong wine. I guess I could down this whole bottle in one sitting, but I think that would be a bit much. But that's the advantage of a bottle of this size. There is enough in it to drink on more than one occasion. A 12oz glass of this stuff right after a 40oz will put a drinker in a good place. And the taste of this stuff actually borders on being good. A very strong taste that makes you sip rather than guzzle. But the fact that its "wine" flavored rather than some melted candy like md 20/20 or Cisco, works to Irish rose's advantage. I would definitely keep a bottle of this in the fridge to drink when you need a little extra something to get you in the right frame of mind. While you're not likely to find a red wine like Wild Irish Rose in the fridge of a luxury yacht, it is still closer to the finest wines consumed on a luxury yacht charter than most other ghetto wines.
