Mountjoy is one of the most well-known CBD beverage brands, making a wide range of sparkling waters which we’ve reviewed in the past. Now they’re back with a new line of extra sparkling waters, available in most of the same flavors. As the name suggests, these are ultra-fizzy waters that feel a little more festive than the standard Mountjoy offerings — and which may be a little better suited for mixing into cocktails.
Note that these come in larger 750ml bottles — and the amount of CBD included (50mg) is commensurate with the size of the container. We tried three flavors, none of which had any terpene flavors evident. Thoughts follow.
Mountjoy Extra Sparkling Lemon Lime CBD Water – Very mild flavor, though the general citrus notes work well with the extra pop of fizz. Harmless and quite gentle, though some sweetness wouldn’t be out of place here. Rating: 7/10
Mountjoy Extra Sparkling Black Cherry CBD Water – The cherry notes pop immediately on the nose, less so — but still present — on the palate. Some interesting almond notes are evident here, though that works well with the berry elements. Rating: 7/10
Mountjoy Extra Sparkling Peach CBD Water – Again quite mild, perhaps the most innocuous of the bunch. It’s peach in the sense of peach ring candies, a light sweetness lingering well into the finish. This one drinks more like a soda than a mixer, which is either a good thing or a bad thing, depending on your point of view. Rating: 6/10
