At the tail end of 2010, Polish Vodka company Sobieski introduced their Sobieski Karamel Vodka. This caramel flavored vodka is one of the tastiest spirits I have ever had the pleasure of sipping.
Sobieski Karamel is naturally flavored and is made with Dankowski Rye. As soon as you crack open the bottle you get an alluring aroma of fresh caramel candy. The body is thick and silky upon pouring.
The flavor profile is outstanding. You get all the caramel flavor with no overbearing sweetness and the strength of a 70 proof vodka. I experienced it on the rocks but I am sure you can enjoy it in some interesting recipe combinations.
Sobieski Karamel Vodka is priced under $20.00 for a 1 liter bottle, this is a steal. I suggest you buy a bottle and bring it to the next cocktail party. Thanks to my good friend Anson for introducing me to this great vodka. Cheers!
