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 of this vodka is very attractive and has sweet scents of toasted marshmallow and buttercream that are deftly balanced with rye grain spice. The palate is fairly rich and echoes sweet flavors without being overtly saccharine. The finish is dry and has a further burst of rye spice. A very capable all-around vodka that will mix well and even drink nicely on its own with a chill."
