Pretty incredible bottom shelf vodka. Got the mini for .99 cents and a 750 mL goes for around $15. Strong grainy scent distinguishes this vodka from bottom shelf ethanol exercises. It's actually quite pleasant, at least as far as vodka smells go. Unlike corn vodkas which have a bit of a sweet if cheap taste this one has a grainy, well-rounded taste on the tongue. Somewhat metallic and bittersweet finish. At first I didn't like the bitter end but as I drank more of it the bitterness grew on me. Astringent is the perfect word for the overall experience albeit it isn't unpleasant and it has a nice mouth feel. Not super watery or oily. Very balanced. This isn't a vodka for everyone but if you're into good bitter flavors this is the way to go and an excellent vodka for the price. Excited to see how it does in a Bloody Mary.
