Not legally allowed to be called vodka in the US because it is not distilled to 97.5% alcohol, this is only done to 95%) The nose is almost brandy-sweet. Reminiscent of Schosser's eau-de-vies. Big fruity and spicy rye aromas as well. The mouthfeel is very oily and it coats your mouth completely. The profile is big spicy pepper and there is a big earthy nutty mid-palate. The finish is long and full spicy rye.
