A Swedish wheat vodka, triple-distilled and flavoured with a natural vanilla extract, Cariel is possibly the best vanilla vodka on the market and makes a cracking White Russian.
Nose: Vanilla. I know that sounds obvious but it's Vanilla with a capital-V. There's also some white chocolate and cream soda behind the initial sweet hit.
Palate: Much less sweet than imagined from the nose, with a thick mouthfeel. Darker notes, with burnt caramel, black pepper and milk chocolate, as well as lots of vanilla.
Finish: Hints of bitterness and even more sweet vanilla.
