"This vodka pours an attractive dark amber color reminiscent of a whiskey. The nose is obviously influenced by the coffee infusion with notes of torrefraction, mocha, and a fair amount of berry fruit from the grape spirit base. The palate skews sweet and the fruit tones almost outweigh the espresso character. The finish has a bit of bitter tannin and a bit of alcohol burn. An interesting spirit but ultimately the fruit and coffee combination is more bizarre than delicious."
