This is probably the most common Nalewka there is - hard to find in the USA (of course), but utterly ubiquitous in every square meter of Poland. I saw it for sale behind information desks, in rural corner stores, and even at petrol stations!
It's sweet and juicy on the nose, like a fresh-peeled clementine. It's incredibly sugary, but not syrupy, going down; the flavor is dominated by spicy rye notes and the inoffensive beet sugar, with the only "bitter" notes being orange zest and just the tiniest hint of clove. It goes down absurdly, dangerously smooth and easy!
This vodka is certainly delicious, but it's also a bit unjustifiably legendary. Other companies' knockoffs of it tend to be undrinkably disgusting, which leaves it little competition - but if you're hunting the world's best brands like I do, it's not necessarily worth scouring the ends of the earth. It's rather tasty, and worth trying if you see it!
