JJ Whitley’s Rhubarb vodka has a distinctly British feel to the flavour, inspired by English countryside gardens. It’s a fruit-fuelled experience that’s sweet, summery and fresh, the unique scent of rhubarb teasing the nose.
Grey Goose has a delightfully crisp taste with a hint of burnt charcoal and aniseed and is delightfully smooth, best served straight, on the rocks or in a Martini but is also great in a tall cocktail.
Clean and elegant, with touches of peppery grains (somewhat reminiscent of rye) and vanilla pod.
Nose – There’s a pleasant fruity edge – the producer’s liken it to a kirsch – that comes from the beets.
Palate – Vanilla, light caramel, white pepper and a little creamy radish.
Finish – Warming vanilla and red liquorice.
Lemongrass, black pepper and a touch of mint. Quite drying.
