Besmoked Vodka Bottling Note

Professor Cornelius Ampleforth has really been busy! Using a selection of the most scientific accoutrements, the "madcap" Professor conjured up a most delectable preparation for your drinking pleasure.

In his quest to create the perfect smoked vodka, dozens of species of wood were sent to their fiery deaths before the ultimate combination was settled upon. The final recipe included Maple, Apple, Cherry, Pecan and Hickory to which was added a sprinkling of aromatic Rosemary. These were placed inside a handsome briar pipe, which was lit, and using the magic and sorcery of suction, Ampleforth drew the perfumed smoke through a carbon filter and then through a carboy filled with a supremely pure-tasting vodka.

The result is flavoursome, intensely aromatic, unusual, eccentric and, most of all, delicious, and we heartily recommend it be used in your next Vodka Martini!

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: A nose that reminds us ever so much of our childhood, and of bonfire night and walks in the woods of Kent. Cool woodsmoke and linseed oil grace the nostrils, with a heady hint of something aromatic and herbaceous. The rosemary makes itself apparent with gorgeous plumes of perfumery, and there is a solid core of cereal sweetness and bonfire toffee.

Palate: Cool and refreshing, the palate carries a deft touch of the forest floor, melded with kipper, salted olives, hints of coriander and lemon thyme. Just on the tail there is a little cardamom/cola note that develops with lapsang souchong and barley wine.

Finish: Oily and sweet, it ends on cool birch wood smoke in a forest on a crisp Winter's morning, and rich kipper.

Overall: The Professor has captured, marvellously, the emotive, pungent quality of woodsmoke. This is an incredible spirit.

    Different Smoke

    Strange stuff - it's not like other smoked things - it tastes more of 'fire' than of something thats been smoked if you know what I mean, but used in small quantities it's really quite nice.

    not fo rme

    I tried this besmoked vodka on its own, with water, and with tonic. The smoke flavor is overpowering; I felt like I was trapped in a fire. Definitely not for me.

    Besmoked Martini

    So ordered this for Christmas week, and tried it for the first time tonight in martini form. 2.5 parts BSV, 0.5 Lillet Vermouth + olive splash. Really delicious complex flavours from the smoke that are excellent with Lillet. Smooth and fantastic nose that lingers without overpowering. Might try it tomorrow half and half with Smirnoff Black. Bar Social Clapham's best cocktail bar suggest it as the base for bloody mary. All in all absolutely excellent, different and fun.
