vanilla vodka doesn't taste like vanilla

I recently bought a bottle of your Absolut Vanilla but was really dissapointed that it didn't taste anything like vanilla. It tasted like caramel instead. I know in your description of it you mention hints of caramel but the caramel flavor is way too strong. This was not worth the money.

Best regards,
Marcus

  • Here in Canada the bottles recently changed from saying "natural flavors" to "artificial flavors". Does not taste as good. At all.

  • My wife and I recently purchased a 750 mL bottle of Absolut vanilla. The bottle was properly sealed and did not appear to be tampered with. However, the vodka smelled and tasted like rubbing alcohol (isopropanol). I took a good sized swig from the bottle and did not get ill, so I assume it did not contain the bitterent present in commercial sources of isopropanol (ergo, the alcohol was likely not swapped out for rubbing alcohol). As such, I have to assume the batch of alcohol that went into the bottle was not properly distilled. Had to pour the whole bottle out. Very disappointing.

  • There has been several bottles I’ve bought of vanilla, and it takes like rubbing alcohol. Such a disappointment.  I hate to buy something else.  It’s like a bad batch. Tonight, two different stores. Terrible rubbing alcohol taste, no vanilla taste what so ever.   Why is this happening with your product?     The one on the left is good the one on the right is terrible.  
    I hope you email me back.  I only drink absolut.  I don’t want to have to switch but will.  This sucks !!

  • I too experienced the same issue and have the same two different bottles shown here and agree that they taste different.  The bottle that has the additional writing " Product of Sweden" does not taste like The Vanilla Vodka I am used to.

    We are sorry to hear that the taste did not match your expectations. Unfortunately I cant tell what may have caused this or if this is batch not following our standard. Thank you for letting us know and please contact local market for further advice.
