Karlsson’s Gold (43/52)

Karlsson 3

Potatoes and vodka are the ideal pairing, so I was excited to see this beautifully bottled Swedish vodka. Karlsson’s Gold gets its name from the heirloom potatoes, Farmer’s Gold. Many potatoes are needed (17 pounds or 7.7 kgs) to make one litre of this 40% alc/vol vodka. The result is a drink that starts off smooth enough, smells like engine fumes, has a taste that leaves a lot to be desired, and after a few moments it leaves an uncomfortable burn that runs down your torso. I would prefer these virgin new potatoes baked, boiled or mashed.

Overall score: 4 shots out of 10  shot-glassshot-glassshot-glassshot-glass
