Light fennel and wheat nose, mellow toasted starch and light lemon zest notes, short polished finish. At an ultra premium price, this vodka succeeds in providing a fairly refined clarity in body, with little aftertaste, but falls well short of the tasting notes of a good vodka.

Part of a Polish vodka tasting event - this entry was put in to represent Krakow.
Odious and ominous on the nose - there's something off about it, in an organic way, like a faint whiff of pleasant B.O. or of gasoline. Because I am insane, this was inviting. As we all took our shot, myself and several old Polish men grinned ear-to-ear as the whole rest of our table were sputtering and coughing in misery. This tastes almost exactly like a drinkable version of an igniting match-head - the flavor is lightly astringent and full of fusel notes (like fireworks smoke), and going down the throat it feels like it is straight-up on freaking fire.
Objectively, this stuff is not good at all - but I couldn't help but love it, in the same way that someone might like white castle, MMA fights, or the occasional song by Nicki Minaj. This is bad vodka, but it's the best bad vodka I've ever had.
