Review: Turi Vodka

turi vodka

Türi is Estonia’s only vodka exported to the U.S. For that, it’s got some novelty cred. But I’m not entirely sure it’s worth the $20 a bottle it costs… if you can find it at all.

Türi is another rye-based vodka, but it isn’t the flavor that immediately hits you: Türi is especially thick and syrupy, more so than any other vodka I’ve tried in recent months. A lemony fruitiness then attacks your palate. If there are secondary flavors in the vodka, I can’t find them. Once the lemon fades, that familiar rubbing alcohol overpowers the rest of the spirit.

At $20, Türi isn’t outrageously priced, nor is it bad by any means, but unless you’re homesick for the Old Country, I doubt you’ll find much of a thrill in this bottling.

80 proof.

B- / $20

    Mission Liquor in Pasadena has Turi. Mission Liquor probably has the largest selection of spirits in Southern California. Their sprits selection makes BevMo look like liquor store =)

    Drinkhacker, correct me if I’m wrong, isnt Ston Vodka also exported to the US? I discovered Ston Vodka after reading Anthony Dias Blue’s The Complete Book of Spirits. He gave Turi a 2 star while Ston recieved a 3 star on a 5-star system

    Ston is exported here, yes, however I’ve never seen it for sale in the flesh.
