Here’s what judges had to say on tasting notes:
“Bright citrus notes on the nose. Amazing sweet lemon flavor coats the palate and carries through to a long lingering finish. Would be lovely over ice and lends itself beautifully to be made into a cocktail.” Kimberly Morini.
“Bright citrus nose. Sweet, perfumed citrus palate”, Megan Quinlan.
“Lots of beautiful sweet citrus!!!” – Russell Sheldon.
Here’s what Hangar 1 says about its product:
Buddha’s hand citron isn’t just a funny-looking lemon; it’s the ancient relative of the modern lemon. Like all great lineages, its flavors and aromas run so much deeper – notes of jasmine, basil, and apricot all mingle. Its acid bite is milder than a standard lemon, allowing these secondary flavors to take center stage, and dance ballet on your palate. The purified lemon extracts in other vodkas give you a single note. Our Buddha’s Hand plays the whole symphony.
NOSE: Lemon peel, grapefruit, citrus pith, lemon balm, with a hint of ginger.
TASTE: Big, sweet, and juicy at the front with jasmine, basil, and apricot notes, then dissipates quickly into light ginger, lemon, grassy finish.
