Note: for the taste : bitter challenge
In the snows of Caradhras, in the darkness of Moria, Miruvor had kept them going when all hope seemed lost.
Ent-draught he never tasted, yet knew its effects every time he peered up at Merry or Pippin.
Quite what the thin yellow wine was that Faramir gave them, Sam never knew.
What he knew for certain was that after a hard day’s fight with a balrog of a bramble, the finest drop to be had in all of Middle-earth was a large mug of the Green Dragon’s best bitter with a well-filled pipe and feet up beside the fire.
