90–95 pts.Wine Enthusiast: July, 2001
The citrus infusion evident in the first whiff. With time the lemony scent becomes more pulpy and juicy than peel-like in the second and third sniffings. By the fourth and final nosing, the bouquet remains remarkably vibrant and zesty. The palate entry is richly, tartly lemony while the midpalate stage is citrusy and slightly sweet. The finish is very long, bone dry and more peel-like. A delicious and refreshing flavored vodka.

This clear vodka bears a somewhat sherbety lemon-zest nose, with faint bread-dough aromas in the backdrop. The body is big, and although the lemon-zest flavors come through they are somewhat masked by the same sherbet notes found in the nose. The finish is short and very clean.

Limpid and silvery-pale yellow-flaxen hue — inconsequential suspended debris noted; the citrus infusion is immediately evident in the first whiff after the pour — with time in the glass, the lemony scent becomes more pulpy and juicy than peel-like in the second and third sniffings — by the fourth and final nosing pass after eight minutes of exposure to air the bouquet remains remarkably vibrant and fresh, even zesty; the palate entry is richly, tartly lemony — the midpalate stage is intensely citrusy and slightly sweet; the finish is very long, one dry, and more peel-like that the midpalate phase; a delicious, one-note flavored vodka that leave a devilishly refreshing taste in the mouth; excellent.
