The Color: "Very cosmopolitan"
Is clear a color? Cuz that's what color it is.
The Nose: "In Vino Veritas"
44 Degrees North leads off with a berry nose, and we're not exactly sure what a huckleberry smells like, but we'll trust them that this is it. It reminded us of blueberries and didn't smell overly sweet, and there was definitely a nice, clean alcohol whiff on the back end.
The Taste: "And drunk the milk of Paradise"
This stuff was less sweet, with a more aggressive tang of alcohol than the Zygo we reviewed earlier this week. It's a more traditional vodka, and while it is sweetened with berries, they're not overpowering. Drunk straight we found it to be, for lack of a better term, brittle, but as soon as we chilled it or added ice it loosened right up. We enjoyed it as a mixer, but we found ourselves sipping this most often on the rocks where the candy-like flavor of the huckleberries was most apparent.
