Featured Best Buy Booze: Absolut Vanilia


August 29, 2011 — Absolut Vanilia

Oh, Absolut, you with your crazy spellings and innovative marketing campaigns.

There’s a soft spot in my heart for Absolut Vanilia. It was one of the very first liquors I ever learned to mix with. In fact, the first cocktail I ever mixed for Jenn ( who would eventually become my wife) was a chocolate martini using Absolut Vanilia.

So it’s kind of like visit an old friend by coming back to this liquor.

Nose:

Strong vanilla scent. No lingering grain alcohol scent you can get from some infused vodkas.

Neat:

There is one hell of a bite to this neat. Something I must have forgotten about. However, the bonus is that there is a strong vanilla flavor without the cloying fake flavor you run into sometimes.

On the Rocks:

A bit more mellow. The vanilla comes on first. There’s still one of a hel bite. It does mix well. One of the reasons we always liked it is because Jenn and I like being able to taste the booze in our drinks. The Absolut Vanilia performs that in spades.

Cheers!
