Pau Maui Vodka for National Vodka Day, 2015

Pau Maui Vodka (80 proof) is our second, if not third Hawaiian vodka and it's always so smooth!  Pau Maui is no different.  It's a high end, triple distilled and clean treat.  The nose is the softest vodka that we've ever been exposed to.  Perhaps, this is due to the fact that the spirit is derived from Hawaiian pineapples? 

There is a very slight alcoholic burn.  But, it follows an oddly pleasing sweet taste.  You don't taste the pineapple and there are no other discerned tastes.  It's almost tasteless, which we like from vodka.  It also frightens us.  Can you imagine that you forget that there is an eighty proof vodka in your lemonade?  It might be wisest to drink it neat.  If you forget what you're drinking, you can look at the bottle if you keep it nearby.

Pau Maui Vodka is a subtle, smooth and laid back palate cleanser!
