Features a bright, pleasantly familiar orange-lemon lollipop scent and fresh, clean and brisk flavors, with most of the lemon in the finish. Balanced, with the right amount of alcohol bite. A sure classic for vodka tonics.

Citron’s bouquet sings with fresh, vibrant, lemon zest right from the opening bell; the prototypical citrus-flavored vodka bouquet. Palate entry is so clean and effortless that you just want to consume more immediately; at midpalate, there’s a rush of lemon zest and oil. The distillers reached the ideal degree of flavor balance, without submerging the vodka presence.

Pristine appearance. Lovely, clean and intense aroma of tangerine is full and squeaky tart in the first whiffs; aeration serves to bring out zesty, spot-on scents of lemon juice and lemon peel. In the mouth, the crisp, razor-edged lemon taste dominates from entry into midpalate. Finishes tangy, pleasantly tart and irresistibly fresh. A superb, prototypical flavored vodka.

Lemon, salt, minerals. Compact texture. Displays a curious sweet/tart interplay of lively citrus. Like the vodka, here is a good base spirit for a Cosmopolitan.

Medium body. Citrus, flowers, wet stone. Moderately rich texture. A surge of bold flavors coats the palate. Notes of subtle fragrance and minerals add dimension. Soft, smooth finish.

Excellent “fresh squeezed” lemon and lime flavors; very good structure and balance. Excellent. Vodka martini.
