Clear. Bright aromas of fruit custard pastry and buttercream with a satiny, dry-yet-fruity medium-to-full body and a honey gelato, frosted cereal, and wet stone accented finish. Great creamy texture and sweet grain flavor that will be great on it’s own or in cocktails.

Beverage Experts Review

**** Exceptional

2010

Crystal clear. Once the appearance is considered, it holds absolutely no resemblance to a classic Vodka and we mean this in very positive sense. It’s amazingly fruity ( apples & berry ) with strong accents of cream soda and hints of cocoa. The palate delivers the same while being amazingly lush with a silky texture that extends the flavors for minutes. This attractive drink has perhaps launched a new spirits category. **** / EXCEPTIONAL !!!!


About.com

2011

Dry Fly Vodka was the most surprising of the three liquors from the distillery. I was expecting an “average” vodka, but much to my surprise this was by no means a “tasteless” vodka. This vodka has clear, soft flavor that is a combination of fruit and rose, which is likely due to its wheat base. I find this fascinating because many craft vodka distillers do the same thing and I compare Mayhew’s “local” distillery to the one in my own backyard because Clear Heart Vodka has a distinct apple flavor. This aspect of finding something (such as flavor) in a “flavorless” spirit is what, in my opinion, makes craft distillers such fun to explore.

If you have tasted G’Vine Floraison Gin you will notice similarities between it and Dry Fly Vodka. There’s a sweet rose bouquet to the vodka that made me double check that I hadn’t accidentally poured the gin, and its something that I haven’t tasted in a vodka so my only comparison is to G’Vine – which in itself is on that fine line of gin or vodka. I enjoyed Dry Fly Vodka so much that I went back and found myself enjoying G’Vine more than I had initially.

This is a vodka that is very pleasant, uplifting and noticeably has a wheat base, which is a nice change of pace. It is a smooth sipper, ideal for drinking straight and would be fantastic in fruit and herbal cocktails, especially those with a vibrant spring and summer feel.

Tasting Notes: 
The nose is a delicate fruity rose mixed with sweet grains. The palate is a darker wheat, ultra silky smooth, and delicately floral, while the finish is long, semi-peppery, and filled with botanicals.

**** Highly Recomended

Flawless purity; clean as rainwater. The local grain base material is piquant, floral, and for wheat, surprisingly off-dry / sweetish, almost more like corn; additional air exposure brings out fragrances of sweetened breakfast cereal, faint vanilla, rose garden, and egg cream; a flirtatiously elusive bouquet that you can’t stay away from. Entry is rich, creamy, and vanilla laden; midpalate carries on with the textural richness and the vanilla aspect goes into a charming bean-like mode. Aftertaste is intensely bittersweet and lean, a nice balance to the fat creamy entry and midpalate.
