Review and Tasting

Sampled on 30/05/2016


Crystal clear


Almost neutral nose with slight doughy bread, Ryvita crispbread and black pepper.


Clean, black peppery spice and faint brown bread with even fainter cream of soda vanilla and liquorice.


Muscular peppery spice with faint cream of soda and liquorice finish.


The 'premium' vodka that paved the way for all the many others, Absolut is clean with enlivening cracked black pepper and faint bready character.
