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 vodka for those with a sweet tooth. Big aromas of vanilla and marshmallows. The palate reiterates these notes with some added sweetness. Though the finish takes a turn towards chemical flavors. Have on ice to heighten the sweetness and dull the chemical tones."
