“This quadruple-distilled vodka is as cool and bracing as the Irish spring water from which it is made.”

“Superb. Highly Recommended.”
“Impeccable purity; clear as mineral water. The initial whiffs detect pleasantly dry grainy and stone-like aromas; aeration stimulates subtle notes of grass, grain kernel, beans, and granite. Entry is clean, off-dry, and intensely grainy; the taste profile at midpalate reflects the stony/mineral quality more than the graininess. Ends on a tangy, spirity note that’s welcome and grainy sweet. Comes off more composed and focused than the previous incarnation.”

“Excellent, highly recommended. Gentle, delicately perfumed, clean and neutral… excellent on its own or in a martini.”

“Fresh, slightly bready aroma with pleasant grassiness. The body is mouth-coatingly syrupy and the palate is sharp, clean and peppery while retaining a nice neutrality, but with lots of character. The finish is warm and of medium length. A well-crafted vodka…”

“The nosing passes find pleasantly dry, grainy and stone-like aromas with subtle notes of grass, grain kernel, beans and granite. Entry is clean, off-dry and intensely grainy; the mid-palate tastes are more stony/mineral and grainy. Ends on a grainy, sweet, tangy and spirity note.”
