The taste of Rodionov’s Polugar is unlike any alcoholic beverage currently produced.
Clear, silvery, viscous/oily in appearance. On swirling it leaves a nice oily coating on the glass with long smooth legs retreating slowly from the edge line with some droplets. In both the coating and the legs it is noticeably thinner than the barley, but this is a function of the grains characteristics and not a refection on the quality at all.

Very just like Buckwheat pancake, notes, a rich grain four with an herbal note that also has elements of grain earth, grassy notes with touches of honey and a breath of dill.
Lovely, oily entry with a heavy, almost viscous body and a taste that reminds you of buckwheat pancakes or Buckwheat Johnny Cakes. Like a liquid version of a Buckwheat Pancake with touches of dill and honey with a lovely fade/finish of herbs, dill, herbal infusion and honey with an ever so slight drying leaving you with a herbal grainy taste and a soft pleasant dress to the tongue. Very smooth and gentle it hides the fact tat it is as strong as it is almost more like a clear buckwheat beer rather than a fun on spirit.
It adds a lovely body and some complexity, especially in a vodka cocktail, rounding and smoothing edges, blending seamlessly and adding its own whispers and nuances to a cocktail.
We use the term vodka in our description and search index so people may fnd it easier. It bears little relation to what passes for vodka these days, and I mean the in only a complimentary way.
