This new vodka brand comes to us from — wait for it — Prague, where it is distilled from winter wheat.
It’s a sweeter style of vodka, though it isn’t blown out as some other new world vodkas tend to be. You get the sugar on the nose, along with a gentle graininess and a slightly musty, mushroom note. On the palate, white sugar again dominates, backed up by a slight lemon character, some caramel, and a touch of candle wax. The body is pretty clean, and the finish is short — not all that brisk, but not cloyingly sweet either.
All told, this is a fair enough choice for mixing, but that’s about as far as it goes.
