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 is what most would expect, hot alcoholic fumes and the chemical smell of new make spirit. The texture is creamy and pleasing. The core of the palate is chock full of minerals. The alcohol isn’t as apparent as it is on the nose, --it is neatly woven in. The vodka gets a tad more oily as it’s on its way out. This would be a good candidate for a White Russian."
