Vodka - Mako
Notes: This vodka is produced in Lake Alfred, Florida, and is made with purified water, triple distilled and charcoal filtered.
10% of their profits go to preserving coral reefs and wetlands- so you not only can have a great time but help the environment without getting that tuxedo dirty.
Appearance: Crystal clear, no sediment whatsoever. On swirling it leaves a thin clear coat on the inside of the glass with uniform legs. It sits in the glass and almost shines at you.
First Impression: Alcohol and grain, almost a pecan flavor or similar nut. No trace of off notes. Well done distillation.
Taste: Quicksilver slide past the tongue and a wonderful warm finish. Slightly oily body but not too heavy-this was not doped up with sugar, glycerin, or vanilla like a lot of others. A very clean vodka!
Drinks: Chilling it down increases the thickness and makes this far too easy for drinking it straight. The martini was wonderful (use a twist not an olive too complement its delicacy).
NOTE: Use Noilly Prat and keep the vermouth refrigerated after opening for the best taste.
Final Thoughts: One of the best vodkas for the money. A premium vodka with a price that is not premium for once. Don't be fashion victim -Save a Goose and some money. Well done, Michael!
Bottle:Clear glass bottle with rounded shoulders, with a large Mako shark silk screened on it with a small drawing of a coral above. Simple tasteful silk screened statement on the back and a drawing of a coral reef at the bottom. Ocean blue neck foil finishes off a simple striking package.
