Russian Standard Platinum
Russian Standard // Russia
One of the Russian Standard bottlings, this vodka is distilled from 100% Russian winter wheat. It is distilled in St. Petersburg and filtered through a "silver filtration system". Bottled at 40% ABV.
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.
"Compared to the standard bottling, this too has a pleasant grain cracker aroma, but the intensity is dialed down even more here. The body is on the light side with a slightly slick feel. The finish is on the bittersweet side and is grain forward, but again leaning on the neutral side of things. A personal choice as to whether you are going for neutrality or not and if you are looking for a vodka that will linger as this will not."
