Warm nose, hints of grape, citrus and rye, and apple in body, long finish. A truly delicious mixed grain vodka.
Reviewer: Christropher Home Cutler
Purchased at a small shop in rural Pomerania.
Light on the nose, but with hints of something like bitter lime zest or heavy tannin. This stuff is completely unfiltered, and is crafted to be the closest possible thing to what the world's first vodka tasted like.
It tastes like getting kicked in the face by the most beautiful unicorn that ever existed.
An initial light wave of clover flower and spearmint dances on the tongue almost playfully, with a backbone of lightly funky grain character not unlike buckwheat, before the stuff hits so strong that your teeth feel like they're vibrating. The flavor is prominent, and lovely - notes of apple peel, unripe quince, and young barley are surprisingly prominent.
This stuff is a must-try for true vodka lovers. It's certainly the most delicious history lesson I've ever had, and I understand why it remains popular to this day in Poland - if it ain't broke, don't fix it!
