Flavored VodkaDistilled from any agricultural product. It will be labeled with the (pre)dominant flavor(s) listed and can be artificially or naturally flavored.
"There are certainly lots of unmistakable coffee aromas on this interesting vodka, but unfortunately many of the flavors skew toward over-roasted. The interplay of the rye spice with chocolatey coffee bean makes for a very intense palate that finishes spicy and a bit sharp. Perhaps the addition of dairy and/or Kahlua in a white or black Russian would bring everything together."
