Pash-ion for Vodka #5 - Mayfair Vodka
They have a concise, yet informative, website, my favourite part being some helpful tips on how to be a gentleman. I'm particularly attracted to the idea that "Good flirting is a form of politeness".
In the current range are a vodka and a gin but a champagne is in the pipeline.
Mayfair vodka is bottled at 40% ABV, made from British grain and is distilled six times. A small portion of this distillate is then re-distilled in a pot still; according to Mayfair, this helps to soften the vodka.
But how does it taste?
Own (Room Temperature):
Minimal nose some alcohol, pleasant; tastes a little musky, a touch bready. Smooth but flavorful and a touch of floral/perfume at the end.
Syrupy texture, the musky, bready elements are really accentuated and there is a little chalkiness too. Still quite smooth with warmth at the end.
Smooth and lightly perfumed. Again the slight breadiness comes out; slightly sweet but rather good.
