Review: Nemiroff Honey Pepper Vodka
Posted by Arctic Wolf on March 3, 2011
Last week I shared my experiences with my first authentic Vodka tasting. I had received a few review samples, and in the interests of getting things right I invited my good friend Lukasz who was born in Poland and is familiar with the rituals of tasting Vodka to oversee my first tasting. He also advised me on how I should (and should not) approach this spirit. Based upon his instruction, and some research conducted on the internet (Vodkaphiles was a great reference site), I developed a method for reviewing Vodka which I hope respects the traditions of Vodka and allows me to write a meaningful review.
My first review is one of the spirits in the original set of samples I received from the Nemiroff Ukrainian Vodka Company. It is apparently their most popular Flavoured Vodka, the Nemiroff Honey Pepper Vodka, available in over 30 countries world-wide.
Here is an excerpt from my review:
“…the Vodka brings forth an aroma of freshly ground black pepper. Indeed, as the Vodka is sipped for the first time this pepper coats the palate and the spicy feeling builds rather than diminishes. Swallowing the first sip brings the pepper to the back of the throat, but no burn is apparent down the throat…”

Please enjoy my first Vodka review. I have included recipes for a Canadian vodka cocktail which is particularly well suited to the unique flavours of Nemiroff Honey Pepper Vodka, The Caesar, and a cocktail of my creation, The Hot Shot.
And always remember that the aim of my reviews is to help you drink better spirits, not to help you drink more spirits, cheers!
