Alchemia Czekoladowa (Chocolate) Vodka
Distiller: Polmos Bialystock SA Poland
: Panache USA, New York, New York
PROOF: 80 (40%) 
AGE: Not Applicable
TYPE: Polish, Grain, Rye, Flavored

PRICE: $30.00 - 750 ML 


Notes: Made with their rye vodka as a base and infused with chocolate. As with their other flavored vodkas (Wisiniowa/Wild Cherry and Imbirowa/Ginger) they infuse and macerate their flavorings, rather than add extracts or chemicals to a grain alcohol base. As such, it is a standout from the alcopop flavored vodkas out there that taste more like a popsicle than a serious drink. This is made with real ingredients and nothing else. Maceration and infusion extracts the essence of the flavorings directly and so (in our opinion) gives a spirits more complexity and depth than the simple addition of a flavoring or essence.

Appearance: Clear mahogany colored with dark amber highlights. On swirling, it leaves a somewhat thinner clear coat and edgeline than their other vodkas. on the inside of the glass and almost seems a bit viscous. Heavy even scalloped edgeline develops long thin leg . Essential cocoa liqueur does not separate from the alcohol base, which is tricky to accomplish with flavorings like this.

First Impression: Thick creamy chocolate/cocoa/alkali scents with some buttery accents whispering in the background. Rye spiciness also comes out to play to add to the melange. Alcohol is very much in the background.

TasteOily sweet entry, as the vodka coats the tongue with the and warming sensations (rather than burning). No chemical or waxy aftertaste like you get from a lot of other flavored vodkas or some cheap candy.

Drinks: For any drink calling for Créme de Cocoa or a chocolate liqueur (such as a Brandy Alexander), this would be a a much better replacement/upgrade of ingredients. Lighter in body, sugar and color than many of its flavor cohorts it has potential for many mixology/cocktail ideas.

If you're feeling like an alchemist yourself, it slso combines wonderfully with the Alchemia Wisinioawa cherry vodka to make a drink similar to Van Wees Hemel op Arde (Heaven on Earth), one of our all time favorite liqueurs.

Bottle: Tall pyramidal clear glass bottle with large frosted A in front and inset depressions for handgrips on the sides Silver seal tape and screwcap. Has frosted "Cz1" in frosted square, almost like a box from a periodical table of the elements- perfectly apt for alchemy!

Final Thoughts: Bravo to the distillers and producers of this vodka. Outstanding and hard to capture chocolate taste and nice clarity.
