    SergeGlenglassaugh 'The Spirit Drink that blushes to speak its name' (50%, OB, newmake, 6 months Californian wine maturing) It’s hard not to think of flavoured vodka when having such an unusual dram in front of us… Colour: pale rosé wine. Nose: excuse me but ‘ouch’. It smells more or less like a ‘not too clean’ raspberry eau-de-vie. What’s more, the combination of the wine and the new make make the whole much farmier than straight new make. Notes of cured ham, redcurrant jelly and cow stable. Highly unusual indeed! Mouth: well, we’re even more on eau-de-vie. Say a 50/50 mix of raspberry eau-de-vie and Zubrovska (buffalo grass vodka). It’s not bad, but is it for malt drinkers? Maybe not… Finish: rather long, with a lot of raspberry in the aftertaste. Comments: of course I have nothing against experimentation but just like the helicopter-bicycle, not sure the future is bright for such gimmicky combos. Better buy a good white eau-de-vie, it’ll be cheaper. Now maybe this ought to be drunk chilled? And funny it is.
