dillons method 95 vodka

alc. 40%

bottle:

same, consistent profile of dillons bottles; bell and stem, apothecary medicinal look. pleasant presentation.

Nose:

Instantly sweet at first nosing. Butter rum lifesavers, hard fruity candies and light bread. sweet and sour. Little to no astringency on the nose.

Palate:

Enters smooth as silk, and slowly builds up to a spicy climax. Quite a burn on the tongue for a long lasting exit. There is, however, very little burn in the throat. Sweet and sour on the tongue, this is far better with ice and a lime slice rather than neat.

Empty glass:

The next day there is no profile in the glass

Score: 82

Please note:

This vodka is crafted from locally grown red wine from the Niagara region. The wine brand is kept a secret to the public, but the winery was storing barrels at the dillons rickhouse for a while. Hint hint.

Overall:

Somewhat disappointing. Has some unpleasant flavours that make my cheek spasm after a sip. There are superior vodkas at this price point.
