85% Polish rye vodka + 15% Anchor Single Malt Whiskey (Hotalings version, 11 years old).

This shows how good blending can be. The straight-style 100% malted rye whiskey infuses and deepens the velvety rye-derived vodka but the strong, somewhat "difficult" taste of the former disappears. At the same time, what started as a bland vodka turns into a stylish flavoursome spirit.

It tastes in fact like a good oude genever.
