Thanks for joining me today, we’re checking out Serratus by Tantalus Labs, for the second time in about a year.
I have a bias for cultivars that I can track back to the traditional market. Said another way, one mechanism I use to separate the wheat from the chaff, is to try to determine if the offering existed before Canada legalized. This isn’t necessarily a good rule. If I followed it exclusively, we would’ve missed out one some good ones.
And this Serratus is one of them. One of the good ones, that also lacks a traceable name. Although a small part of me wants to resist it, the product is really likeable, and I don’t feel like I’m going out of a limb saying that. I don’t fantasize about it, the way I do a new release from a seed bank or when a producer grows a favourite of mine. So maybe I don’t naturally gravitate to it, but every time I opened this jar, it was surprisingly impressive.
Leans on the expensive side, so you have to use your judgment with your own perception of value. Like when your Mom is sick, I’d tell you Serratus is worth checking in on. Sure, it smells funky, maybe a bit old, hasn’t done its hair in a while, but there is character worth cherishing. I, personally, visit twice a year, and find that’s about enough to realize her value. You may want to visit it more, or less, no judgement from me.
The formal review is below, followed by the unboxing. Thanks for reading, see you on the next one.
