KONIK'S TAIL 40%
Vodka De Cereale, Poland, 70cl, Ref: 4475
Pleurat Shabani and cellar master Bernadeta Ejsmont took over three years to hone their blends and bring us Konik’s Tail. Tucked away not far from Belarus’s largest forest, long untouched by Man, the distillery produces a traditional vodka that shows incredible maturity, with each bottle signed by the cellar master himself.
Made from spelt, rye and winter wheat, this vodka bears the name of an ancient breed of Polish wild pony that lives in the dense forestland near the distillery. Legend has it that the mere sight of one of these ponies is a sign of a bountiful harvest to come. Thus Konik's Tail was born, a blend of spelt, rye and winter wheat that undergoes stringent vetting processes, made using ancient, traditional Polish distillation techniques. Profile: spiced (white pepper, pink peppercorn). Spelt. Exotic (pineapple, mango). Earthy. Gentian root and intense spices (clove, mustard seed).

- Appearance : colourless.
- Nose : fine, dynamic. Delicately spiced (white pepper, pink peppercorn), the nose sees spelt gradually taking over. Remarkably well-balanced, it also boasts a wonderful mellowness. Exposed to air, it oscillates between fruity exoticism (pineapple, mango) and the earthiness provided by its gentian root and stronger spices (clove, mustard seed).
- Palate : open, creamy. As the nose progresses, it reveals itself to be spicy (clove, juniper), fruity (apple, pear) and vegetal (green grass). The mid-palate is heady and displays enormous maturity, as testified by the notes of curry powder, ginger and peppermint. Its almost perfect balance is consistent, heightening its gourmand aspect (courgette fritters).
- Overall : long, gentle. Particularly floral (hyacinth, freesia) and vanilla-flavoured, it nevertheless refuses to give in to sweetness. Notes of fresh tobacco and grated ginger ensure a herbaceous transition. Dark chocolate, coconut milk and red berries (raspberry, strawberry) appear at the climax. The retronasal olfaction marks a return to the spelt. The same goes for the emptied glass.
