Beats the hell out of Grey Goose for about half the money.
Notes: Six times distilled and filtered 6 times.
Appearance: Clear and almost as thick as a light mineral oil it seems.Edgelin on swirling gives way to legs and as it recedes, to droplets
First Impression: Sweetcorn, slightly vegetal and mint notes to it. No sharp off notes like some grain vodkas. Seems corn has more round notes to it as it were.
Taste: Seriously on the sweet and oily side but thankfully has a great mineral backbone as a counterbalance
Drinks: A bit too sweet in the vodka martini but takes the corrosive edge of a Bloody Mary quite nicely though.
Bottle: A rather minimalist bottle, clear glass with green and black labels silkscreened directly on the bottle.White screwcap closure and green tape/ribbon.
Other: The parent company, Distilling Head is planning to come out with a number of other products such as a rum line.
Final Thoughts: Nicely done and quite cheap compared to Grey Goose and better tasting. That being said it is a bit too sweet for my personal taste. Almost an alcoholic version of simple syrup (Hmmm…. now there’s a thought ). But if you like your vodka on the sweet side and enjoy a nice minerality in it this one is for you.
