96–100 pts.Wine Enthusiast: July, 2001
The nose is hypnotically exotic and builds in intensity. The bouquet by the third sniffing is nutty, bean-like and shows faint echos of marzipan, vanilla cake frosting, and nougat. The taste concentrated and focused on vanilla bean. The midpalate captures the pure essence of vanilla beans from Madagascar. Pour into orange juice for a great summer cocktail or make a vanilla cola. Outstanding and decadent.

Clear, minor, far-spaced, minuscule sediment present — no problem; the nose is so exotic and seductive that I want to down the whole glass — exercising restraint, I opt to run through my normal four-step nosing phase and what a total delight it turns out to be — the bouquet is nutty, bean-like and shows faint echoes of marzipan, vanilla cake frosting, and nougat — one of the most unique bouquets in the vodka category — I loved it from start to finish; the taste is concentrated and so focused on vanilla bean that I can’t imagine even mixing this vodka with anything — it’s so delicious and idiosyncratic that I wouldn’t want it watered down or altered in any way; a flavored vodka bonanza that even trumps the dynamite Limonnaya and Pertsovka; has the pure essence of vanilla beans from Madagascar and Indonesia.
