GSN Review: Boru Vodka

2_91746175_3One doesn’t normally think of vodka when Irish spirits are mentioned.  Yet, here we have one.  Boru is a quintuple distilled grain vodka made with Irish spring water.  It is named after Brian Boru who was High King of Ireland from 1002-1014 AD.  In fact, he was killed in battle on Good Friday exactly one thousand years ago.  So, perhaps you would do him the honor of toasting his memory in a few weeks.  Slainte!

Boru Vodka (80 proof)
Visual: Clear.
Nose: Oddly buttery and sweet.
Taste: Quite sweet with a malty character.  The minerality plays second fiddle to the main very thick almost glycerine-like mouthfeel.  This is a heavy vodka that has a spun sugar essence.
Finish: Lasting sweetness percolated with hints of ginger spice and fresh-cut grass.
Overall: Quite different, and definitely a vodka that will stand up to anything you add to it.
GSN Rating: B
