One of the featured flavors for the Three Olives O-Face campaign was Cherry. The aroma leans more toward that of black cherry with a little sharpness rather than a lot of sweet. There is virtually no burn in the nose as Three Olives seems to be a rather clean vodka. Tasted neat it remains as clear and clean as the aroma represents. Three Olives Cherry Vodka remains smooth, slightly sweet as vodka tends to be with a hint of dark chocolate cherry. There is no alcohol burn even sipped at room temperature. It soothes the throat as it slips down with thorough progression. Since I mention the slight sweetness on the tip of the tongue and this is a flavor infused vodka I will mention it is not sugared vodka such as liqueur is obviously sweetened. Many vodkas contain a hint, degree or fade of sweetness in the initial taste.
As with all Three Olives Vodkas the ultimate goal is satisfaction, an ultimate O-Face for ‘O’bvious pleasure and delighted amusement. Create your ultimate O-Face for stimulating party fun and entertain with the Cherry-O Punch, easily mixed for individual cocktails or punch style for parties.
