Wine Enthusiast 90 points - Initial nosing passes reveal a zesty and mildly spicy aroma that’s focused on the cereal grain; the bouquet registers on the leaner, drier side of neutral grain spirits and as such is in direct opposition to other creamier, sweeter Dutch vodkas. Palate entry is moderately sweet, almost smoky; at midpalate, a flash of black licorice tempts the taste buds, then recedes, allowing the sweet, nearly smoky/pipe tobacco leaf taste to dominate.

Inside EFFEN® Vodka (and each EFFEN® flavor for that matter) you’ll find a light, crisp vodka experience. This, our very first variety, was designed by bartenders for bartenders to be a perfect base for mixing cocktails. Still the original. Still smooth and refreshing.
