So I was passing through Sheremeyvo airport at about 11 pm last night looking for an unusual bottle of booze and I found this stuff.
Its basically a white whiskey made from different flavours. They have flavors that are wheat, rye, buckwheat, barley, blackbread and one more. So I thought hell why not. I bought the Barley and buckwheat, by mistake as I really wanted the rye. But anyway its great stuff. The good thing is not the booze which is really nice but its a different classification of a historical drink that could be used in labelling. I was trying to think of a classification for white dog, that sounded different with a different historical story and Polugar is it. Nineteen century style Vodka. So what is it like, pretty nice really, the buckwheat has a bit more bite but the barley is very nice and buttery with a lot of flavour and mouth feel. Not like the very smooth but almost predictable taste of russian high purity vodkas.
Anyway nice drop and nice story. I had to share as I feel I have been lurking while my distillery plans are moving forward. I am now involved in a second distillery start up in Chile that will be taking all of my SD gear, as well as my plans for my start up in Mendoza Argentina. The distillery in Chile will be starting first product runs of Pisco in about 4 weeks. Meanwhile I am in Armenia slaving like a white kaffir. But start ups are not free.
