Absolut Vanilia vodka

Today I am reviewing Absolut Vanilia vodka. In this blog I will include the following information
  • My research on the history behind this vodka
  • Vital Stats
  • Tasting notes
  • SJ's Rating
  • Food Pairing
  • Occasions best enjoyed & SJ's pro tip
Reads the product label "Vanilla. The magnificent flavor that can pretty much enhance everything from cookies to ..well you name it.Perfect for those with a sweet tooth or the ones that are into experimenting with contrast flavors". Absolut is a part of French group Pernod Ricard. The unique thing I found out from wiki is that 
1. Absolute practices a one source production philosophy which means all their production happens around the village of Ahus,Sweden.
2. The water and wheat both are sourced only from the village. 
I believe this strict dedication to quality produces a smooth & creamy vodka like Absolut. Now enough said, check out my tasting notes to find out the verdict !
