A voice of another Ukrainian - I always get a few bottles when it is available. The taste is very fresh with a hint of sweet birch, which is hard to describe, but familiar to everyone who ever tried "birch juice". Works well on its own well chilled or in any mixes, given them a slightly mysterious aftertaste.
Nemiroff Birch Vodka 750ML, Ukraine
I am Ukrainian, and as such I used to drink this vodka in my motherland. Now in Florida I was happy to get it. While admitting that I am not the most objective judge, I really think that it is one of the best products on the market. Not easy to get.
When I first saw this, I said to myself, "I thought wood alcohol was bad for you." Not this one. Nemiroff has a winner here with a fresh and clean tasting vodka with a hint of birch buds. The taste is slightly sharp, but has a sense of purity that is rare in most vodkas. The birch is not overpowering in any way and, if you haven't been near a birch tree in your life, you probably wouldn't even detect the flavor in the first place. In any case, it is worth checking our and is certainly better than the "fruit and nut" flavor versions of other vodkas. Tag: Clean, Fresh, Sharp, Unique
