Unflavored VodkaDistilled from any agricultural product, most commonly grains or potatoes. Typically distilled to 95% ABV. Water is added to bring the spirit down to as low as 37.5% ABV in the EU and 40% ABV in the US. It is usually filtered, often with charcoal, prior to bottling. It is almost always clear and unaged.
"The nose steers away from the harsh smells of most new make spirit, but does offer the scent of bitter citrus oil. The palate is much bolder with an oily texture to boot. Unabashed flavors of vanilla, bitter lemon, hard mineral water, and a chemical finish a bit like cleaning solution. A screwdriver or some lemon soda would bring out this vodka’s best qualities."
