ultra-premium Russian vodka. It is distilled five times, filtered nine times, and goes through 3 control taste tests (thus the 9·5·3 tag). The effects are apparent. This rye and wheat vodka is superb. It offers notes of mineral, lemon peel oil, wheat, rye, and a full yet crisp, dry finish. ZYR is short for Zyrkalo Mira, or Reflection of the World.
