...a brave choice this by Chase, but IMHO it delivers quite brilliantly. As others have said, doesn't really mix with a lot else (certainly not sweet mixers anyway), but the flavour isn't too over-powering so can be sipped comfortably over ice.
Bouquet is unremarkable, but upon swilling the olfactory and oral receptors start to sing in harmony. Initial sensation is that of the smell of a damp bonfire the morning after - one which I personally love - all earthy, charcoaly smokiness. This then develops further into a more woody, savoury sensation and ends up reminiscent of bavarian smoked cheese.
On which note, I can recommend this with cheese and biscuits of every type - begone old school brandy, and let the smoked vodka seize the post-meal sceptre and orb...
Just buy yourself a bottle, you will not be underwhelmed.

Amazing product. As written before this is best neat with ice, and is superb with cheese.

Smashed a whole bottle of this with Sushi at Angelicas in Leeds. Super smooth with a complex flavour. Doesn't really go with many mixers, perhaps some ginger beer. The best option is to have it straight with lots of ice and the right kind of food. Great with cheeses for example.

Makes a great Bloody Mary or martini.

Not even my father, who has never been known to decline a drink, would touch this.
I love Chase standard vodka but i think they made a bad decision to put this on the market. avoid
