I had the opportunity to try Vodca Exclusiv recently, and I was pleasantly surprised by the excellent quality of this reasonably priced spirit. Vodkas in this price range often have a harsh flavor, unpleasant after taste, or lack any flavorful notes of merit, making then unfit, for anything other than mixers which mask their taste. Exclusiv on the other hand can hold it’s own against many luxury vodkas, and is perfect for martinis and other drinks which feature the flavor of the spirit itself.
Vodca Exclusiv is produced in Moldova, and is distilled entirely from the highest quality winter wheat, utilizing the finest Russian production techniques.
Tasting notes: Quite smooth, strong note of vanilla on the nose, and fruit (cherry/berry) on the tongue.
Exclusiv Vodka is affordably priced at $20 for 1.75 liters, considerably less than comparable quality vodkas.
