I have just finished my last sip of my martini made with your vodka. It was wonderful, but more about the experience later.
The bottle with the blue seal over the top was quite distinctive and the shade of blue was superior! I have only seen a seal like yours on 2 fine bourbons, Makers Mark and Knob Creek, NICE TOUCH!! The label was well done and the coloring was quite pleasing to the eye.
Congratulations on a fine color scheme for your product. The seal removed, and I found a cork like top. I thought this touch was very sophisticated and lent a nice entrance to the contents beneath. I drank the vodka at room temperature, neat (without ice), over rocks, in a martini, shaken, BUT, not stirred and stirred, BUT, not shaken. I also drank the vodka those 4 ways after placing the bottle in the freezer and tasting it quite cold.
I preferred the vodka to be quite cold and I enjoyed the drinks made with the vodka after it had rested in my freezer. That is just my preference. In all instances your vodka was exceptional!! I believe this vodka was a bit smoother than the vodka I sampled before. I believe your product to be smoother and more refined than the "premium" vodka's sold and are t.v. popular, i.e. the Grey Gooses, the Polish products, the Russian products and even, what was my favorite until now, the Swedish vodkas. The only other American vodka that I am aware of, Tito's, is good but does not have the smoothness or the flavor of your brand.
With any vodka, I find the first sip is a bit of a "jolt" and this lasts until the alcohol content anesthetizes the palate and then the "smoothness" sets in. With Foggy Harbor, the initial realization was present BUT, as I sipped the drink I could still taste the liquid up to the final sip. I find this unusual in most of the other brands. Once the initial "jolt" has passed these other products seem to loose their taste. Some say that is what the "smoothness" is about.
I disagree. I want to taste the product until the very last sip. I liken the experience to a fine single malt scotch, something I really enjoy! Your product is as good as it gets, in my estimation, it was delicious!
