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.
"The aroma begins with hot fumes that carry a big bouquet of vanilla. The palate has some heft from its oily texture and strong mineral flavors. Underneath these minerals is a soft layer of vanilla and a splash of fruit. Despite the bare minimum ABV the alcohol seems to warm everything involved. Pour this over ice and it is lighter and more refreshing."
