DESCRIPTION (quoted after website at http://www.tastings.com/scout_spirits.lasso?id=173037):

"Clear of light straw shade. Subtle, sweet blueberry and herbs scent fill the palate with sweetness broken with fruity and mint note and touch of dry and oak spice. The whole taste is completed with an aftertaste of refreshing lemon peel and mild mint. This mildly flavoured vodka is a real challenge for popular cocktails on the base of martini or citrus liqueurs."
