"This vodka has a very attractive nose with faint tones of orchard fruit intermingling with more forceful flavors of toasted grains and earth. On tasting the pear distillate becomes more recognizable and evokes applesauce and Bartlett pear. The finish is very smooth with very little impression of alcohol but does show a bit of sweetness. Although labeled as all-purpose, the fruit tones are very pleasant but may throw the taste of some classic cocktails out of balance. "
