Notes
: Czysta (Polish for "crystal") Vodka is produced in Poland by Polmos from Rye a premium grain. They also produce some excellent infused vodkas :( Wisiniowa/Wild Cherry ,Imbirowa/Ginger , and Czekoladowa/Chocolate) .

Appearance: Crystal clear, no sediment whatsoever. On swirling, it leaves a thin clear coat on the inside of the glass forming a crenellated edge with long legs A crystal clear viscous pool in the glass.

First Impression: A slightly sweet smell to it. No smell of esters or oils; clean.

TasteSlightly oily start with a slight sweetness at first,  medium body. Crisp, mild grainy bite to it on the edges of your tongue. A slight  warming of  alcohol as it goes down the throat, with lingering warmth and tingle to the lips. Chilling accentuates the sweetness and body and makes it smooth as glass.

Drinks: The martini nicely smooth. A slowly stirred 3 or 4 to 1 Ratio of Alchemia to vermouth with a 1-2 dashes of a good bitter and lemon zest yields a very nice martini. Works well in all the other drinks we tried it in - it's smoothness makes it play nice with virtually any ingredient.

NOTE: Use Noilly Prat and keep the vermouth refrigerated after opening for the best taste.   

Final Thoughts: An good value for the money. Smooth, well made, and quite good for the price point.

Bottle: Tall pyramidal clear glass bottle with large frosted A in front and inset deppresions for handgrips on the side. Silver seal tape and screwcap. Has frosted "Cz4" in frosted square, almost like a box from a periodical table of the elements- perfectly apt for alchemy!
