So we had to leave the apartment. But we didn’t manage to leave the Bishkek yet. Our plan was to get our stuff together, stay one more night in a Hostel and then leave for some sightseeing to the countryside. So we visited the market, found me a cheap cool army jacket and headed home to have a quiet one since we had to get up early the next day to take a marshrutka to the city of our choice. So we ended up cooking and drinking.
Today Bishkek Calvados. The amber looking apple spirit is a usually a French specialty. So I was really curious how the Kyrgyz version of it would taste. The smell was promising. Sweet, vanilla, spices, almost like a Christmas bakery. The taste was different. It had a slight vanilla note with a burning long lasting alcohol taste. I don’t know how this has been made from an apple but you couldn’t taste any apple flavor out of it at all. I bet the French would be ashamed of this.
