Russia. Jewel of Russia Black Label 1L 80 proof.
The same incredible vodka as Jewel of Russia Ultra without the expensive hand painted bottle. Possibly the best vodka available at any price.
Only natural ingredients and ancient recipes are used in making the Jewel of Russia vodka. The brand's top priority is to preserve the distinctive and authentic character of traditional Russian Vodka, while achieving the highest level of smoothness.
Reviving old traditions: the drink of the czars, the Jewel of Russia Ultra is made from a centuries-old recipe, hard winter wheat and rye and deep artisian well water. The Jewel of Russia Ultra is a limited-edition vodka that undergoes additional rectification and slow-flow filtration to achieve purity and smoothness.
90-95 points Wine Enthusiast:
"The delicate perfume is softly grainy, with nuances of white pepper, wheat crackers and cigarette tobacco. The palate entry is elegant yet a touch hot; at midpalate the dry flavor turns silky in texture and minerally and stone-like in taste. Concludes bean- and kernel-like, bittersweet and a touch soy curd-like. A subtle, understated vodka with lots of layers and grip."
