Review: Smirnoff Peppermint Twist

Smirnoff Peppermint Twist Bottle Shot (HIRES)Ho ho ho! What’s Santa want next to the fireplace? Not another peppermint candy but rather a peppermint-flavored vodka. Smirnoff Peppermint Twist isn’t just a mint-flavored spirit, it’s all wrapped up and ready for your holiday partying.

Let’s give this flavored vodka a holiday-centric spin, shall we?

The nose is all candy canes, and that’s not just the bottle wrap telegraphing things: fresh peppermint, with subtle sweetness underpinning the racy spice. The body’s a smooth operator, offering sweet peppermint candy with a gentle warmth to it. It’s simple and uncomplicated — which is probably what you want from a bottle designed to look like a holiday candy. The finish is quite lasting and appropriately evocative of wintertime. Peppermint flavored spirits aren’t a tough nut to crack, to be honest, but with Peppermint Twist, Smirnoff’s got as good a handle on it as anyone.

P.S. Don’t miss the scratch-and-sniff bottle wrap!

60 proof.

    The scratch and sniff on the bottle has been so much fun. People can’t believe the bottle smells like peppermint

    Wish me luck! I’m serving iced Smirnoff Peppermint Twist for a Christmas Eve toast, followed by Flaming Ice Cream Snowballs and chocolate Midnight Bliss Cake. . . . .and, looking forward to the ‘scratch and sniffing.’ Will we want coffee?

    Surprisingly pure peppermint flavor balance perfectly with just the right amount of alcohol. Taste like schnappes. I enjoy it best as a shot drunk straight at room temperature, and also in my coffee with cream. Perfect flavor and very affordable. What sold me was the packaging and it’s topped off by a pinwheel of peppermint on the top of the cap.
