Review: My brother recently returned to the U.S. from a business trip to Russia, and today I got to try the Nemiroff Honey & Pepper vodka he brought home. I tend to prefer higher proof ryes and bourbons, and usually avoid flavoured spirits of any kind, but this was a very compelling experience. There are clove and subtle honey notes mixed with the pepper undertones. I've tasted nothing like it before, and can't wait to get my hands on a bottle for myself!

Review: I found this vodka to be most exquisite. The stark flavour of jalapeño pepper contrasts with the subtle flavour of honey only to be balanced with undertones of licorice and vanilla. The unique thing about this vodka is that as you consume the bottle, over time, it becomes spicier. Its very good when you get to the end of the bottle and it becomes really spicy. I would heartily recommend this vodka in cold weather. It warms you up right away.

Review: An acquired taste. When I downed my first shot I didn't much care for this flavoured vodka. I found it too "hot." Yet as the contents of the bottle dwindled over a period of several weeks, I found myself getting accustomed to it's unique flavours. The smooth sweetness of the honey contrasts very nicely with the spiciness of the peppers — note the actual peppers in the bottom of the bottle! Recommended.
