Modern Spirits Black Truffle

Modern Spirits Black Truffle vodka is pure truffle heaven

 

Modern Spirits Black Truffle
California

Modern Spirits Black Truffle vodka from California is everything the name promises. Other distilleries do not dare attempt such an infusion due to the high cost of the raw product and esoteric idea of black truffle. But this small, artisan, California distillery fears nothing, except mediocrity. The finished product is pure truffle heaven. The nose is addicting with fresh aromas of earth, truffle, mushroom and a bit of mustiness engaging the senses with a rare intensity. The palate is equal to the nose, adding an essential oiliness on the tongue and caressing the inside of the cheeks with a rich creaminess. This is a work of art that demands to be paired with food like risotto or even a steak.

Price: $67
