Hangar one Vodka is truley unique. It is made using a pot-distilled vodka using wine from excellent viognier grapes, which is a very expensive thing to do. This is lovely stuff - soft, aromatic, and unbelievably smooth. Next, they blend this viognier wine vodka into well-made column-still wheat vodka.
The viognier wine vodka makes Hangar One Straight vodka pure, elegant, tasty, and very, very smooth. Theres no unpleasant ethanol/alcohol overtone, no burn on your tongue, no roughness in the back of your mouth. When you mix the Straight with other things, the vodka brings out the flavor without making the drink taste alcoholic. This is the way its supposed to be: you should just plain enjoy what youre drinking.
