Absolut Vanilia is flavoured with vanilla from Madagascar.
Launched in the USA, Absolut's main market, in 2003. Originally presented in frosty silver-white space-like bottles, as Absolut Vanilia's official launch date of 15th March loomed, back in Sweden they were experiencing problems applying the finish to the bottles. Production was delayed but they met the deadline by airlifting 198,000 bottles in four Jumbo Jets.
Review and Tasting
Sampled on 11/11/2019
Reminiscent of vanilla ice-cream sprinkled with dark chocolate and cracked black pepper.
Vanilla, butterscotch, creamy white and bitter dark chocolate with peppery spirituous spice.
Vanilla and black pepper spice.
One of the original vanilla flavoured vodkas and arguably the most enduring. It may smell a little like vanilla ice-cream but this vodka is bone dry with a vanilla and white chocolate flavour, and black pepper spirituous spice.
