Vodka from Iceland? Yes! They've never produced it on their own, but let's face it, this is a foreign venture in a land that has all the right ingredients. Namely, the purest water in the world. Never heard of anyone using lava rock for filtration, but hey, it works on the same principle as charcoal, so why not? I have to say, I was very impressed by this vodka and would put it up against the finest in the world. It's made in small batches so I'll be interested to see if subsequent purchases have the same quality of the one I tried. Give this one a try, you won't be disappointed.
Hmmm. . . Grapes. It's not a traditional vodka, but does have a pleasing flavor. Laypeople won't know the difference, and some traditionalists will eschew the fruitiness, but when it's served from the freezer it has a distinct character all its own and is very good. Very nuanced and not harsh at all. I would recommend it for vodkaphiles seeking a change of pace from traditional grain or potatoe vodkas.
Where's the worm? Seriously, vodka from Texas? OK, I admit it. It's pretty damn good. Not as good as a good potato vodka (the BEST!), but very good for grain.
Excellent vodka. This is the rare vodka that has pleasant nuances at room temperature or frozen. Slightly sweet with a hint of bite, yet smooth going down. But the price. . . Flavor is always a bit subjective, and at least for my tastes there are other excellent vodkas for much less money.
A very good, and very traditional vodka. Like many of the Polish vodkas it has a full bodied flavor and a bit of an edge, but no unpleasant aftertaste. Smooth, but not as much of a "slippery" or oily mouth feel as Luksusova (but even the best grain vodkas often differ in this regard from potato vodkas). Great out of the freezer and for a quality martini.
OK, but I've had much better. There are many better grain based vodkas (Shakers, Ketel One, Finlandia), and if you really want an excellent potato vodka, Luksosowa wipes the floor with this stuff.
