Polish Vodka, it holds a place near and dear to my
heart since, after all, I am Polish. However not all the different
Polish brands hold a place near and dear to my taste buds.
I have taste driven Belvedere Vodka before
and found it quite nice. I just wonder if they have remained
consistent or improved over the years?
at the very least it does seem that they have been very busy
over the years as they have launched 10 new Vodka flavors.
Among that group of the usual fruit flavors I find three quite
intriguing; Belvedere Intense, Belvedere Unfiltered and Belvedere
9. My goodness, what have they done to good old Vodka?
take this bottle for a taste drive and see what they've been
up to lately. Their Vodka is quadruple distilled from Dankowskie
Gold Rye and diluted to appropriate proof with water from
Belvedere's own artesian well.
nose is very clean with a hint of vanilla and no unpleasant
alcohol fumes. On the palate it is creamy and medium bodied
with a nuance of vanilla and a light touch of spice. The finish
is smooth and clean leaving just a slight tingle of pepper
and is medium in length. I believe this is about as close
as one can get to the definition of Vodka as being without
any taste, color or aroma yet the few tastes and aromas that
are present are delightful and minimal.
Vodka is priced at that super premium price point of around
$30.00 per 750 ml bottle. It makes a great martini and is
super when ice cold and in shots. I believe I would use something
a bit less pricey for those mixed drinks but if you want to
experience real and true Vodka, Belvedere
