The opening bouquet is fruity, ripe and true to the infusion source; aeration intensifies the luscious, off-dry mango perfume. The palate is silky, properly fruity, moderately sweet and ripe. Ends wonderfully mango-like and firm. By leaving the alcohol level at 40% (most flavored vodkas are 35%), Finlandia has given this beauty the spirit foundation that’s frequently lacking in so many other flavored vodkas. Best Buy.
