"Smooth spirit" nghĩa là gì?

Sẽ rất ngon và êm... :) Photo courtesy Ed Schipul.

'Smooth spirit' có từ smooth là êm dịu, có vị dễ chịu; vì thế từ này nghĩa là rượu (uống) êm.

Ví dụ
Woody Creek Distillers is best known for their potato vodka, an incredibly smooth spirit that’s born from potatoes that Woody Creek actually grows themselves.

Bottled straight from the still at 52.5% with no maturation process, the newest addition to the Teeling range is a surprisingly smooth spirit which can be enjoyed neat, with water or in a cocktail.

A good-quality gin has the ability to transcend a moment and be evocative. To be great, it has to achieve an impeccable (hoàn hảo, không chê vào đâu được) balance of being a smooth spirit, yet packed with flavours that leap from the bottle and leave a long-lasting impression.

As the very first Kentucky bourbon to be advertised to the public, Old Forester gained quick recognition, and bartenders began experimenting with the smooth spirit. In the 1880s, the iconic Old Fashioned was invented in a local club in Louisville, and legend tells that Old Forester was used in that first concoction. But the brand’s influence didn’t end there. In 1897, the federal government followed Brown’s lead and passed the Bottled In Bond Act that required all bourbon to be sealed in bottles.
