Smirnoff Blue 100 Proof
Smirnoff // USA
Made just like the classic Red No. 21 vodka, but bottled at higher proof. It is distilled via continuous distillation and made from grain. It is charcoal filtered and bottled at 50% ABV. It is known in some markets and travel retail as "Export Strength" or "No. 57 Export Strength".
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.
"Getting too close to the glass, you'll get the alcohol burn, but not much else. Some cereal grain aromas. Tasting neat, you'll get a little oil slickness on your palate, but the proof whisks that away quickly. Finish is clean and you are left with a bittersweet flavor on your palate and a chest burn from the proof. Best mixed."
