Another day, another vodka flavor (watermelon, anyone?)

That’s what we thought when we heard Grey Goose vodka has a new entry, named VX. Why mess with perfection? But rather than just add a fruit flavor this GG is ‘finished’ with precious cognac from grapes from the Grande Champagne cru. ( It’s a blend of 95% Vodka and 5% Cognac.)

As Francois Thibault, a strikingly handsome Frenchman and creator of Grey Goose explained, ‘ “In creating Grey Goose VX, I wanted to capture the aromatic notes of a precious Cognac, bringing its delicate essence of orchard fruits, plum, apricot and the mild flavors of wild honey to the remarkable character of Grey Goose vodka.”

Packaged in a gorgeous Cognac-shaped bottle, the VX is a game-changer. Now that the flavor tend is waning – and none to soon –  expect to see more high-end vodkas add a spirit.

But what does it taste like, you ask? Like the nectar of the Gods. If that isn’t specific enough, imagine the base note of clean, smooth Grey Goose vodka with a whisper of jasmine, a pinch of wild honey, an essence of peach and plum, and a very dry finish. Meant to be sipped, preferably ice-cold, it stands on it’s own, but can accompany most foods, especially ones with bold flavors.

Priced at $75 a bottle, the decanter is made from ‘extra flint ‘ glass, known for it’s brilliance and clarity, making it a great gift. Almost too pretty to drink. Almost.
