French vanilla ice cream is delicious and the inspiration for this vodka. The aim is for a richer, smother even creamier vodka.
This new (originated in 2003) French vodka is unusual in that it is made from grapes. It is distilled five times and is 40% Alc./Vol..
The aroma of the French vanilla is enticing and the vanilla flavour, as in ice-cream, is delicious. There is a pleasant warm feeling on drinking, but then there is the burn. This vodka gains points for its flavour but not for its smoothness.
Overall score: 5 1/2 shots out of 10
