Krolewska Vodka

"In my opinion this has the most pleasing nose of any Polish vodka, delicate, soft, and pure, with a lovely rye aroma. To begin with, sweetish and delicate on the palate, a little oily and silky without being cloying but it then develops some needle because of the extra strength, which i find a little aggressive. Hints of carmelization also begin to appear. Good rye finish. This is a characterful, very good vodka, which misses being outstanding by a whisker because of the slightly burned taste. Chilling it down subdues the caramel but the burn, which some drinkers will enjoy, is still evident."
