Dr Vodka has good friends. And when this gift arrived from the Isle of Wight it was greeted with delight. Garlic vodka is made of premium English spirits – distilled barley and sugar beet – and ‘heat-aged’ black garlic. The best way to describe this vodka is ‘surprising’. The aroma of garlic is powerful, and the colour is an impressive deep black. The surprise is the taste. The vodka is simply delicious. It is a very smooth drink with a sweet, almost caramelised edge. The presentation of the bottle and label is classic. Quite the best surprise in a long time of vodka drinking and it is worthy of its high score.
This vodka is 37.5% alc/vol.
Overall score: 10 shots out of 10
