TN: Hangar One Vodkas

zin1953 Nov 29, 2008 07:35 AM

Hangar One Vodka: smooth, supple on the palate, no alcohol burn; very fine indeed.

Hangar One "Budda's Hand" Vodka: infused with this citrus, native to South Asia, it's more complex than simply "lemon," and absolutely excellent.

Hangar One "Kaffir Lime" Vodka: using both the fresh limes and the leaves (often associated with Thai cuisine), this one is -- uh -- not my favorite. A little harsh on the palate, and it reminds me of the English Leather Lime Men's Cologne I used to use in high school in the late 1960s -- cool and groovy, it ain't! That said, Lynn liked it.

Hangar One "Mandarin Blossom" Vodka: Remains my favorite -- they use both ripe Mandarine tangerines and fresh blossoms to create a stunningly aromatic and flavorful vodka that is as smooth as velvet!

Hangar One "Spiced Pear" Seasonal Vodka: A wonderful infusion of ripe pear and a subtle hint of cloves make this limited offering a "must buy."

    thanks for the notes. I did note in my Buddha's Hand that it almost tasted as if the peels were left in almost too long and started developing a hint of that "earthiness". Has anyone else gotten that>

      Looks like you're on a St. George tear.
