In the Glass
Brilliant, crystal clear.
The nose is very alluring as it offers a complex mélange of dark cocoa with supporting notes of rich caramel and dark roast coffee with just a hint of vanilla.
The palate fully concurs with the aromatics as it delivers a very generous explosion of chocolate with accents of caramel and mocha with a soft lactic note that's foiled by dry roasted cocoa beans.
Intensity & Texture
Medium to full-bodied with decadent chocolate flavors that never becoming cloying rather it invites consecutive sips.
Yes — flavored Vodka can be cool especially when it's the Gold Standard like the Van Gogh Dutch Chocolate.
Sold in the middle $20 range it sits on par with the quality flavored Vodkas on offer while being a cut above the crowd.
