Alko like.. Alcoholic?

We went drinking after the kumis yesterday. We just had to. It was Friday and the bad taste of that shit was still in my mouth. I had to wash it down with loads of beer. And it worked. Today I just felt hungover. Still better than having a kumis taste in my mouth. Yesterday I also received a gift from a friend. An awesome looking bottle of vermouth. I didn’t know Kyrgyz people drink vermouth but the guy on the bottle looks like he has never done anything else.

So today I had a Vinap Alko Vermouth. It had the typical sweet almondy vermouth aroma with a hint of Maggi sauce. The vermouth was dark red colored and the taste was sweet and nice at the beginning. It finished with a longer lasting weird bitter aftertaste. With 18% also a rather standard vermouth. Positive to mention is the bottle. A portrait of a healthy looking Kyrgyz boy with the punchy keywords “Good, Strong, Vermouth”. Big up to the marketing team here.
