Nemiroff Premium


Nemiroff Premium vodka

slightly better

This is a review of Nemiroff Premium vodka from Ukraine. I sampled it in Germany in 2013. It’s clear, 40% alcohol, and I found it to be sufficiently smooth.

Nemiroff from Ukraine, again. This one came after Nemiroff Original, which I found good but not great, and then Nemiroff Honey Pepper, which I thought was awesome. So I was intrigued. What was Nemiroff Premium vodka going to be like?

is Nemiroff Premium vodka now De Luxe?

There’s a problem, though: It’s 2021 now, and I can’t find this brand on the site:

There were a few De Luxe bottles, but no Premium:

I don’t know what happened, but my guess is that Premium might have been replaced by De Luxe in the course of their latest rebrand. To be sure I’ve sent an email to Nemiroff, maybe they’ll tell me.

again with the expectations

So anyway, back in 2013 I carried my bottle of Nemiroff Premium vodka home and sat down with it. I had high hopes for this one, with it being all premium and stuff.

And yes, the taste was a bit better than that of Nemiroff Original. It was more smooth and went down easier. The aftertaste was a okay as well. There was something aromatic in it, but it wasn’t anything spectacular. Maybe a hint of sweetness, and that was it.

I’m not a big fan of the bottle design. It just didn’t really look like a “premium” product to me. The price was good, though: around 16€ for 700ml.

premium in the middle

I’m not sure if I can recommend this spawn of the Nemiroff family. It might be a bit better than Nemiroff Original, but it’s nowhere near as exciting as Nemiroff Honey Pepper. It’s a good vodka, but nothing fancy. I wonder if the De Luxe version is the same, or if it’s any better.
