Pepsi's 1893 Ginger Cola offering is a refreshing take on bringing a new product line to the public. Both the Ginger Cola and Cola have a taste that can be considered as being distinctly different than the Pepsi flagship brand. In order to fully appreciate the flavor profile of the Ginger Cola, it helps to have tried the original 1893 Cola, as well.
The original 1893 Cola is described as containing kola nut extract, a malty flavor, aromatic bitters, pure sugar, and carbonated water. As to what it actually tastes like, the closest comparison that could be drawn is that it tastes like a more deeply flavored Royal Crown (RC) Cola. RC definitely has the soda which tastes most strongly of kola nut, which is the dominant flavor in the standard 1893 product. Where they are different is that the line of 1893 products contain sugar. This most strongly contributes to a heavier mouthfeel with the 1893, which is actually a good thing, as it helps to accentuate the flavor...
I really wasn't expecting the ginger to be as strong as it was, but for me that's a good thing! I like that there's a strong flavor of ginger in the cola and it makes the flavor a bit more subtle. I would not simply call it Pepsi mixed with Ginger Ale. That is a disservice to the cane sugar, ginger, and kola nut that are very tastefully mixed together in this amazing flavor. It may not be for everyone, but I love it!
They need to change the name of this product to "1893: Pepsi Crack". The bold, spicy taste of this soda gives me a fix as I feel the bubbles and flavor flow over my tongue and down my throat. I find myself craving this soda like a junkie from Train Spotting. It's a struggle between paying bills and buying more. I am forever addicted.
