Oak-aged vodka has been done before, however by no means with a lot success. When you needed whiskey, you’d drink whiskey, amirite?
Vodka in barrel sits in a wierd center floor occupied by unusual oddities equivalent to light whiskey and tobacco-flavored vodka, stuff that sounds fascinating on paper however which normally sit on the shelf untouched in favor of extra fascinating issues.
Properly, Bently Heritage has tried once more with the idea courtesy of its Source One vodka model, which takes its normal vodka (distilled from wheat and oats) and finishes it in oloroso sherry barrels for 20 days. Let’s give it a attempt.
As anticipated, the sherry comes by means of on the nostril instantly, providing a nutty, winey, brown sugar component whereas conserving the doughy character of the bottom spirit heavy within the combine. The palate is comparable in tone, fairly candy at first, with notes of almond, cherry pits, and marshmallow instantly evident. Once more, it’s fairly vodka-like regardless of the adulterants within the combine, a touch of chocolate, a weak tea character, and a few oxidized wine notes taking issues in a distinct route because it develops within the glass. The end is chewy and a bit complicated, touchdown as anticipated in a wierd DMZ that lives between vodka and whiskey, by no means pledging allegiance to both facet. I really feel like there have to be a objective to a spirit like this — although that objective continues to elude me.
