3 months I waited to open my bottle .
When it didn't get opened on my birthday in Oct. (just too many beers before, eh) I promised my bro's Christmas Eve, and we cracked the Crystal Head tonight. At first sniff ... nothing. Then, after a minute, sniff again and I will say there was a slight kind of alcohol smell. Not too strong. I poured the first few shots and some were sipped, some were shot, they were all tasted and the jury agreed this was a fine vodka.
We actually never got around to mixing it with anything lol. There was a definite sense you were drinking alcohol but there was no real noticeable aftertaste. Good vodka thumbs up!
Agreed, Steam! I'm not really a vodka guy (gimme my brown liquor!) but I've enjoyed this on the few occasions where I've bought it. Very clean, maybe a hint of vanilla aftertaste... definitely enjoyable on its own without having to mix.
We didn't finish the bottle that night (Christmas Eve), I wanted to let a few other people have a shot as well, and two weeks ago one of our regular house guests did agree with the hint of vanilla. We wind her up and she dances around the basement, lol. Nice girl, sleeps on the couch.
