Quite possibly the best tasting fruit-approached (whether flavored or infused), the Skyy Infusions Pineapple is a spirit that will have everyone go gaga over it, no matter what type of spirit they traditionally like. For those that are fans of vodka, the Pineapple taste is mild enough to moderate but not cover up the vodka essence, while for those that want something completely out of the ordinary, the Pineapple will provide an entire night of new experiences. When individuals open the bottle, they are immediately greeted with a nose that is very sugary and fruity (almost like a Gummy Savers), moving more towards pineapple juice and finally giving individuals a hint of the alcoholic side of the spirit at the end.
My particular favorite had to be the straight shot aspect of the Skyy Infusions Pineapple, which married a warm burn with the titular tropical fruit flavor. However, others at the NeuFutur offices found themselves to be quite big fans of random mixed drinks, which ranged from the pedestrian (a Screwdriver with the Skyy Infusions Pineapple), to the crazy (Roi Rene Combier, Sweet and Sour, and the Pineapple) and outright ludicrous (mango juice, Skyy, and tequila).
While we did not get too much into the sipping aspect of the spirit, I have a feeling that it would perform as admirably as it did in either of the other formats. With a price that is well under the $20 mark, there is no reason that an interested party should not be searching out a bottle of this Vodka as soon as the stores open. Iâ€™d say to wait a little bit after that to drink it, especially if someone stashes it away in a freezer or snow bank.
