The taste of Rodionov’s Polugar is unlike any alcoholic beverage currently produced.
Delicious, balanced, full of favour and body, this is an outstanding favoured vodka. Standard rather than watered down proof make mixing easier and helps mediate the somewhat higher price for this excellent vodka.
Nicely oily entry that smooths the way for the aromatic allspice, followed on by the honey and finally a pleasant heat from the pepper, which then leads to a nice grain finish with sweetness a whiff of perfume, heat, oiliness and plumpness. Just the way we like them.
Clear with no inclusions, sediment, etc. On swirling it leaves a light to medium coat on the glass with the swirl line retreating rapidly install legs that turn into droplets.
Interesting, somewhat understated bouquet a well balanced blend of allspice, honey and thankfully just hints of pepper all carried nicely by the spirits which imparts a nice grain base linnet round out the overall bouquet.
