Finlandia Classic 40%

Tasted: Oct 2014

Nose: Deep and grainy. More like a young grain whisky with a touch of dried fruit and a smidgen of vanilla.

Finish: Long and nutty.

Conclusion: Now that’s the sort of vodka I like!

Finlandia Coconut Vodka 37.5%

Tasted: Oct 014

Nose: Plenty of sweet, nutty, coconut along with a touch of crisp grainy spirit notes, but mainly coconut!

Palate: Very sweet, nutty and coconutty!

Finish: Long with lingering coconut!

Conclusion: Well, it definitely tastes of coconut!

Finlandia Grapefruit Vodka 37.5%

Nose: Pithy with plenty of sweet, pink grapefruit along with a touch of neutral spirit.

Palate: A little watery and sugary sweet with pink grapefruit.
