Vesica Potato Vodka, triple distilled, clear and very much a nice looking bottle of vodka. It’s triple distilled, which means to me that it might have a bit more taste as it’s the hardcore five-times distilled vodka I’m used to tasting. So, I’m going to predict a less smooth yet more flavorful product.
I’d give you the rundown of the color in my glass but Vesica Potato Vodka looks like most other vodka brands–crystal clear. We’ll move right into the scent, which I could smell from about three feet away, a mildly sweet taste it seems but let’s dive right in!
While the initial smell is that of ethanol, it’s a slightly sweeter nose with hints of grass. There is almost no burn on the nose when you put your face right into the glass. There is a very subtle eucalyptus and mint on the tail end of the nose. As I’d expect, the taste was a bit light bodied watery texture, not as bold as a few other vodka’s I’ve had yet it leaves almost no potent punch on the palate.
Sipping this at room temperature would no doubt bring out the alcohol-burn sensation on the tongue yet I only get a slight tickle. The finish is refreshing, with a little bit of the eucalyptus hints and a bright cold fade away. While it’s designed as a potato vodka, I get a bit more rustic potato from the Absolut taste. The Vesica acts almost more mature and tasty with a finish that doesn’t make you shake your head from a potent punch.
Vesica arrives in three sizes: 750ML, 1L, and 1.5L at 40% ABV but there doesn’t seem to be a website built for the brand yet, perhaps it’s just too new. You’ll find Vesica Vodka retailing for $19.99 for 1.75L; $11.99 for 1Liter; $9.99 for 750ml. This is definitely a great tasting vodka served neat with maybe a bit of a chill to it and comes in at a daring USD $9.99 for an average bottle! You’re going to be hard pressed to find a vodka that can meet or exceed the quality for $9 a 750ml. My only fear is that Vesica will lose some of its character if chilled too cold or with too much ice.
