VESTAL VODKA, KASZEBE 2011, 40%

Think that vodka doesn't really have a taste? Most times you'd be right, but Vestal use only young potatoes when they're of fullest flavour and distill only once, which is very unusual. These highly acclaimed vodkas have a great taste.

Fantastic small batch vodka from Poland. Kaszebe is made using potatoes from the sandy soils of Kaszubia in northern Poland and offers hints of green banana, walnut and an alluring creaminess. Very tasty stuff that should be enjoyed neat.

From the producer:

Made from the Vineta early picked potatoes from the sandy soils of Kaszubia in northern Poland this robust spirit offers hints of green banana, walnut and a creaminess unique to this vintage. Sip and savour or mix subtly to retain its essence.

 

Independent review from Gifford's Guide:

Aroma: As the liable says, "initial grassiness is followed by aromas of capsicum and green walnuts". I'd add that the walnuts are pickled as there is also a whiff of vinegar and, as with the 2010 vintage, this also has pollen heavy blossom aromas.

Taste: Opens with a slight sweetness before turning dry with hairspray and earthiness. Slightly creamy with tropical fruit esters.

Aftertaste: Tart, slightly citric finish with lingering liquorice and tropical fruit.
