This vodka hails from Norway where it is distilled from potatoes and made with “pure glacial water” from up there in Scandinavia. Mild nose, much less powerful than you’d expect from a potato spirit, which is typically more of a bruiser in the aroma department. That follows through to the body, which offers quite a bit of sweetness, and a big, lightly medicinal finish. Some lingering bitterness hangs around after. All in all it’s a fairly simple spirit, but well worth the $12 price tag.
