belvedere intense vodka

Alc. 50%

Bottle:

Black coated tall straight edged wine bottle with bright platinum decals of trees and a polish presidential palace.

Nose:

slightest isopropyl turns to coconut water after some generous airing.  Any spirit is almost non-existent. This is a ghost of a nose.

Palate:

Intense is not a marketing ploy here. Intense chocolate shocks the palate through and through. Nutty grain and wet lined paper are hidden by sweet cocoa. very smooth and fast exit with no trace of alcoholic aftertaste.

Overall score: 90

Outstanding vodka

Please note:

distilled four times and derived from rye grain.

There is no need for ice, or lime, because of the flavor profile it already carries, and is so smooth.

Belvedere found itself in some hot water after posting on social media an advert of a man ‘playfully’ restraining a fleeing woman, with the slogan ‘unlike some people, belvedere always goes down smoothly’ . what were they thinking? At least the advertisement came down in less than an hour.
