Oak by Absolut - A Barrel Aged Masterpiece

Just when you thought the spirit world had gone flat and you were relegated to the same bottles that your eyes have crossed for years, along comes a barrel aged spirit to wow you. A barrel, not that unique you say. They are even putting beer in oak barrels now. Amazingly Absolut took their 96% pure vodka, had it mature in three different barrels and created the fabulous Oak by Absolut.

Oak by Absolut

Absolut vodka works with oak that originates from; Sweden, France and America and combines new and toasted barrels, as well as bourbon casks. The combination of each distinct wood and the aging process along with the fact that they are using a 96% pure spirit is what creates the unique mix and plethora of different flavors within Oak by Absolut. You are going to find a richness due to the aging that you won't find in any other vodka and as you are tasting Oak by Absolut you are going to be able to taste a wide range of flavors including; caramel, vanilla and of course a great smoky undercurrent throughout.
