Amber color. Aromas of cream of wheat with a brown sugar topping, pressed linen, and pink eraser with a satiny, bright, dry-yet-fruity light-to-medium body and a tingling, medium-length walnut skin, burnt sugar, brazil nut butter, and ground mustard finish. Notes of caramel lace this oaky vodka that will offer a mild and approachable alternative in whiskey cocktails.

Barrel-Aged Vodka is just that, an unflavored vodka that has been aged anywhere from a few weeks to several months in either neutral or charred wooden barrels The barrels are traditionally un-charred, neutral, local or Slovenian oak in Polish and Russian examples. In modern or craft versions they are more often barrels that formerly held whisky or brandy to impart more color and flavor.
