Review: Türi Vodka
Türi is Estonia’s only vodka exported to the U.S. For that, it’s got some novelty cred. But I’m not entirely sure it’s worth the $20 a bottle it costs… if you can find it at all.
Türi is another rye-based vodka, but it isn’t the flavor that immediately hits you: Türi is especially thick and syrupy, more so than any other vodka I’ve tried in recent months. A lemony fruitiness then attacks your palate. If there are secondary flavors in the vodka, I can’t find them. Once the lemon fades, that familiar rubbing alcohol overpowers the rest of the spirit.
At $20, Türi isn’t outrageously priced, nor is it bad by any means, but unless you’re homesick for the Old Country, I doubt you’ll find much of a thrill in this bottling.
B- / $20
