Review: Finlandia Grapefruit Fusion Vodka

Review: Finlandia Grapefruit Fusion Vodka

Grapefruit is a tricky flavor: It’s so sour that few people eat can each grapefruit with a dollop of sugar on top. Yet, in many a cocktail, grapefruit makes an ideal ingredient… hence its natural status as a vodka infusion.

Finlandia’s Grapefruit Fusion offers a nose of lemon, orange, and other unclear citrus character. The body is not especially grapefruit-heavy, either. Sweet at first, it offers sharp citrus notes — lime and orange — before finally fading into something that can be distinctly recognized as grapefruit. It’s primarily just a sour final note on the finish that reminds you what you’re supposed to be sipping on.

Relatively interchangeable with other citrus vodkas, and not at all unpleasant.

70 proof.
