- ABV 40%
This is one of Polmos's super premium brands made exclusively from Stobrawa potatoes grown in the Podlasie region of Poland. The vodka is distilled four times following a six century old tradition and is handled by Polmos's most experienced distiller, Waldemar Durakiewicz. Chopin (named after Poland's favourite son) is packaged in a cork-finished bottle made in Beaune, France, in the heart of the Burgundy region. It is the same frosted bottle used to market Belvedere Vodka. Chopin makes a perfect gift or an impressive addition to the home bar.
Tasting Note: Clear. Clean flinty aromas gives way to a supple, silky, light-to-medium bodied palate with confectioner's sugar, lemon zest and mineral flavors and a pointed peppery fade. A smooth and elegant vodka for martinis. 40%Alc./Vol.

Other reviews… The first sniffings unearth a soft, slightly sour and vegetal aroma; more time adds minor scents of ash and unsmoked cigarette. The bittersweet palate entry taste flashes on cocoa bean and sap; at midpalate toasty, sooty flavors of tobacco leaf, wood smoke, wood resin and vanilla are found. Ends up semisweet, succulent and roughly spirity. Rating: 85-89 - www.wineenthusiast.com
“Potato vodkas have never been as well-received as their grain-based competitors, but Chopin—which appeared on the American market in 1997—should go a long way toward changing their lowbrow reputation. It's the smoothest vodka we tried, with a slight oiliness (specific to potato vodkas) that cut beautifully against the briny funk of black caviar and held its own against the thickest black bread I'd been able to find. We found Chopin itself to be 'slightly sweet' and 'well-rounded' with 'perhaps a hint of apple.' Chopin also had a 'medium-length, pleasing burn,' but 'very little aftertaste—it's remarkably clean.' To top it off, Chopin's tall frosted bottle was the prettiest we'd seen...the panel unanimously called Chopin 'far and away the best vodka we tried.” – Alex Abramovich, “Hit me With Your Best Shot”, Slate Magazine, 2004.
