Notes: This Vodka is one of the few Espresso vodkas that does not use a load of caramel to color their vodkas (and kill the taste). It is made in Schiedam, Holland and is part of a large portfolio of flavored vodkas including, variation on this a Double Espresso (Caramel Colored), Citroen, Coconut, Dutch Chocolate, Mango, Melon, Orange, Pineapple, Raspberry, Vanilla, Wild Apple, and of course a regular "unflavored" version.

AppearanceAbsolutely clear, on swirling it leaves a a thick clear coat on the inside of the glass and a few legs developing slowly. It is however well blended in that the essential oils do not separate from the alcohol base, a difficult trick when dealing with real, fresh ingredients. Well done!

First Impression: Roasted coffee with only a hint of alcohol in the background, slightly waxy smell developing, and sweet sugar.

Taste: Thick sweet body more of a caramel machiatto body than espresso, sweet coffee taste like the last of a good Cuban coffee.

Drinks: Makes wonderful espresso martini drinks and of course works very well in coffee drinks, and of course regular coffee (use this instead of sugar in your cup).

Final Thoughts: A excellent expression of a espresso vodka especially for something so easy to find. Compares well to the more artisisanal (and harder to find) bottlings out there and is a wonderful alternative to many of the coffee liqueurs out there. As a clear coffee vodka it also allows for a cocktail that doesn't look like mud also.

Bottle:A frosted yet distinctive tall cylindrical bottle square shoulders marvelous graphics and a clear window to a reverse silkscreen painting .Attractive graphics (as in all their series) and gold neck foil.
