An attractive bottle acts to tantalise you into tasting this vodka. The imagery of Baltic Mists conjures up both nautical and romantic illusions. Baltic Mist Gorzka vodka has been flavoured with secret herbs which create a most distinctly bitter flavour. A slight addition of orange flavouring is meant to add a sweet edge to the bitterness of the herbs. It does not succeed. The bitterness is strong and overwhelming. Possibly the herbs in this 40% alc/vol vodka act as a digestive when taken with a meal. I certainly enjoyed my meal much more than I did this shot of vodka.
