Proof66 Notes

Absolut is famous for flavored vodkas and great marketing. Absolut Boston is the 2009 limited edition expression from the Absolut Cities campaign to celebrate specific attributes of various cities. This vodka--whose bottle is a celebration of Fenway Park's green wall--is flavored with black tea (how can you think Boston without thinking tea?) and the popular elderflower. As with all of these expressions, part of the proceeds go to the city's local charity.

Because of the success of the flavor, Absolut re-released the flavor as Absolut Wild Tea vodka in January, 2011.

About the Producer:

Absolut claims "all natural ingredients" with "no added sugar." It officially began production in 1979 and, to this day, they take great pride in their production facilities in Ahus, Sweden where "every drop of water" comes from a single "deep well." The vodka uses a soft winter wheat for its base.The brand is owned by French-based Pernod-Ricard.

Absolut vodka is one of the top-selling brands of vodka in the world and is one of the great visionaries in the marketing of vodka. Their aggressive and occasionally scandalous ads in the nineties helped launch the cocktail culture.

Lovely, lovely vodka! I agree with the previous review, I initially thought it tasted lemon-y, almost like lemon zest. There's an underlying spice to it too, not overwhealming whatsoever though. Sweet, spicy, lemon-y, and very fresh. It's like spring in a bottle.

This has become one of my most favorite vodkas ever. Too bad it's a limited edition!!!! Quality vodka with a perfect balance of tea flavor make for a great drink.

This was a fun change of pace. The tea infusion not only gives this vodka a pleasent "fresh" scent, but also makes for a very unique flavor.

This stuff is wonderful! It smells like lemon tea... a soft, fluffy lemon tea. It's probably supposed to smell like Elderflower tea but I smell regular tea with lemon.

The taste is lovely and smooth from start to finish. The tea flavor is perfectly balanced and all herbal--not at all sweet. This can be taken on the rocks or it will lend an earthy tone to any sort of cocktail that normally calls for vodka. It's actually outstanding in its own vodka martini.

Sad to see this is a limited edition.
