Judges Tasting Notes: Crystal clear. Piercing nose with no apparent smell yet lively alcoholic sensation in the nose. Full impact on the palate with abundant, mouth filling sensation. Tremendous intensity. Decided grainy note in the super smooth mouth. Finest texture. Fascinating notes in long, well controlled finish. A great sipping vodka.
