ugly bottle good vodka
[40%, sampled in Kyrgyzstan]
Here’s a throwback to Kyrgyzstan. To the old sanatorium of Jeti Oguz. To the clean mountain air and the night of many drinks. This one, called Nano Platinum vodka, was the last and final brand that followed Kyrgyz Aragy, after Ular, and after Atanbaj. You could probably say that it was the straw that broke the camel’s back.
I don’t remember drinking this. But luckily I still have my notes, and they are surprisingly readable. Some parts are crossed out where we apparently argued about how we were going to rate this drink, and there are some water stains on the paper. Or are they vodka stains?
Nano Platinum tastes like wheat
It says that the taste is an 8/10 here in my notes. And it tells me that this stuff tastes like wheat. The aftertaste is supposed to be good, too. There is no mention of any special aroma here, though.
Interestingly enough, this one was slightly more expensive than most other brands in Kyrgyzstan. It was about 250 Som for 700ml (4€). The bottle design was okay. I personally didn’t really like it that much because it looked very eighties. And the eighties looked like crap.
All in all, this is a pretty good vodka, and I would love to try it again in more limited quantities.
