Clear. Subtle aromas of powdered potatoes, toasted Brazil nuts, and vanilla yogurt with a silky, off-dry light-to-medium body and a sweet whipped cream, nougat, and mossy riverstone accented finish. A refreshing, elegant vodka that will be great in artisan cocktails.

The first sniffings unearth a soft, slightly sour and vegetal aroma; more time adds minor scents of ash and unsmoked cigarette. The bittersweet palate entry taste flashes on cocoa bean and sap; at midpalate toasty, sooty flavors of tobacco leaf, wood smoke, wood resin and vanilla are found. Ends up semisweet, succulent and roughly spirity.
