Review: Hangar 1 Rose Vodka

Review: Hangar 1 Rose Vodka

Who says there’s no innovation in the world of vodka besides simply dumping in random flavorings until something that tastes like a Jamba Juice comes out?

Hangar 1 Rose is a bit of a new animal: Hangar 1 straight vodka blended with 5% California rose wine. (That’s right, it’s “ros-ay,” not rose petals.) We got a sample, so let’s give this oddball creation a taste.

First off, the nose is initially closer to vodka than wine: tight and astringent at first, with a gentle floral character that emerges after a few seconds. Give it time in glass and notes of strawberry and raspberry emerge, eventually dominating the aromatics. On the tongue, the rose wine element is immediately evident, again heavy with both strawberries and flower petals. At just 30% abv, however, the body of the spirit is quite thin, giving it a somewhat gummy texture at times. Moderately sweet, with a touch of nutmeg evident, the finish is moderately clean but, again, quite floral.

Hmmm, maybe it is “rose” vodka after all.

60 proof.

    Now you just have to try that new Apothic made with added coffee so that I don’t have to.
