Tanqueray Sterling Vodka Review:

An elegant premium vodka based around the classic Tanqueray flavour profile. Well-structured mixers for classic cocktails. A worthy alternative for both Martini and Gin aficionados.

Th pungent, forest flavor of grains is not as dominant as in other earth-toned vodkas and Tanqueray Sterling Vodka presents a nice juniper/gin flavor with no graininess to speak of.

A balanced and nutty look with long viscous legs.

Tanqueray Sterling Vodka is not at all harsh, but rather soft-bodied with a crisp bite. The floral-flavored pine lingers after the swallow, adding to the overall aromatics.

A nicely balanced woodsy flavor, not too bitey. Just enough to recognize the flavor without it dominating the palate.

Tanqueray Sterling Vodka Review:

The surprising smoothness of this vodka is due in part to the non-traditional triple distillation process that spirits maker Tanqueray uses when making it. The initial distillation in copper alembics at a lower proof level of 42 creates the distinctively fresh flavor that makes this brand so unique.

Tasting the vodka with a couple of splashes of water added really broadened the flavor profile. The floral notes really come to the forefront, and the juniper become more apparent.
