Aged for six months in a Californian wine cask – 50%
My Tasting Notes:
Color: Pinky Vodka
Nose: Malt, pears, grapes and a hint of lemon.
Palate: Very spicy at the start, then cherries and pears.
Finish: Long and spicy
Overall: In my opinion this experiment does not work. Maturation is too short for much influence of the cask, so it is basically a mixture of the fruity newmake with a little red wine. These tastes don’t mix very well. I much prefer the raw newmake.
Score: 64/100 – Price Tag $$$$$ – Value for your Money $$$$$
