Guide Review - Orange V Vodka
"How orangy can a vodka get?" Pretty orangy if it's done right and this one has got it going on.
Ethics are coming into play in consumer buying decisions more than ever and many people are choosing to buy organic, free trade and environmentally friendly products over others when they are available. Orange V is a shining example of a successful spirit that meets today's standards of moral consciousness. The purity of 100% organic products used in its production is certainly recognizable in the finished product. Additionally, the knowledge that the base grains are grown on small American farms and that the purchase of such a product is supporting independents who strive for quality is a bonus.
The taste of Orange V is purely orange and a delightful one at that. Unlike some other brands, this vodka is a spirit that is true to its roots and the unadulterated citrus blend can only be compared with fresh picked fruit straight out of the field. Enticing aromas of sweet orange blossoms with gentle lavender undertones greet the senses and prepare the palette for the flavor explosion to come. Florida sunshine enters the palette with intense, clean citrus and transforms itself into a sweet, yet hardy, tang that only quality can produce correctly. The zesty finish adds another perspective of the infusion with a woodiness that is begging to be savored.
