Tasting Notes

"Russian Standard Vodka is a good example of a wheated vodka. Gentle toasted notes on the aroma with a bit of sweetness which extends on the palate with that Wheat Thin flavor. Just enough to help with the bite of the 80 proof vodka. Average mouthfeel with some slickness and clean finish of moderate length. This is the Goldilocks vodka. Not intensely flavored or spicy, but not nothing either. Versatile and great value. "
