The initial nose is gentle, subtle and intriguing, with floral notes drifting in and out of range. As the glass warms, notes of malt make themselves known.PalateThe first impression is of malt, the stuff they added to milkshakes when I was a little tacker back in the dark ages. That impression builds to a crescendo of YO-YO biscuit flavour that builds and is really rather pleasant.
The YO-YO's just keep on rolling on by in one of the longest finishes I have ever encountered in a vodka. As the YO-YOs disappear in the distance the final impression is of a faint white pepper.
Piotr's Vodka is made from a mixture of traditional Cossack wheat spirit married with our own barley malt spirit that would otherwise be destined to become whisky.
Founding partner Vic Orlow produced this vodka as a salute to his late father, Piotr Mikhailovich Laptev in the style that Piotr used to enjoy in pre-war Russia. I think Piotr would have been very proud and pleased with the result.
Excellent straight out of the freezer, over ice or in a cocktail, especially in a Bloody Mary.
