The Kaptain (40g)
@Gourmet Hawaiian Kava - can you confirm that this does/doesn't fall into the tuday group?Koniak has not been deemed "noble" and maybe never would be, but anecdotally it has been safely enjoyed in PNG for quite some time. For those that are interested, I'm currently looking at an HPLC test of six samples of Koniak that show a chemotype 254631 with 5 and 4 being within .5 grams per 100 grams. Total kavalactone percentage ranges between 7.9 and 11. We do not see Koniak as a daily drinking kava.
(I promise I'm not trying to stir anything up here. I just want an official answer based solely on the chemotype. We want to be as thorough as possible. I know many people love koniak from BKH, but we need to attach caution to its appropriate places)
