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.
"A moderately intense aroma of Wheat Thins fills your senses as you put your nose to the glass. As you taste, you can actually taste the wheat flavor which is a good thing. Which is not to say that the flavor is overwhelming or distracting. It's wheat, after all. Only slightly sweet on the tongue, the finish is dry, clean, and light. Refreshing even. A really good example of a wheat vodka. To be had neat, in a dry martini, however you like."
