Vodka

The perfect liquor for mixing, vodka is used in an array of popular cocktails including the Screwdriver, the Cosmopolitan and the Bloody Mary. Generally made from distilling fermented grains or potatoes, vodka has an alcoholic content of 40% ABV (80 proof) and has historic origins in Eastern Europe. Classified as a rectified spirit, vodka is traditionally distilled at least 3 times before being filtered through charcoal. It requires no aging and can be consumed immediately after production. Given its very neutral taste, vodka tends to be rated on account of its texture and is commonly infused with fruits, herbs, and other flavorings.

Absolut Citron

  1. $24
Features a bright, pleasantly familiar orange-lemon lollipop scent and fresh, clean and brisk flavors, with most of the lemon in the finish. Balanced, with the right amount of alcohol bite. A sure classic for vodka tonics.  — K.N.  (10/1/2010)

Hangar One Mandarin Blossom

  1. $35
The deep, sweet orange and honeyed-floral fragrance is the first signal this vodka will be special. The flavors are clean and brisk, followed by a strong bite and honey and tangerine notes. It finishes sweet, with faint floral and vanilla notes coaxed out over ice.  — K.N.  (10/1/2010)

Shakers Vodka

  • Best Buy
  1. $33
Shows attractive, bittersweet vanilla extract, cracker and cocoa bean-like aromas. Palate entry is beany, bittersweet and intensely vanilla extract-like; by midpalate, the bittersweet, almost honey or molasses-like taste profile soars on the tongue. Finishes semisweet, intense.  — P.P.  (10/1/2003)

Cold River Vodka

  1. $35
The lovely, austere and enticing bouquet offers scents of black pepper, charcoal and limestone. Entry is sweet and lightly spiced; at midpalate luscious tastes of caramel corn, charcoal, quartz and cocoa bean make for wonderful North American unflavored vodka drinking. Concludes smooth, complex and layered. A coming superstar.  — P.P.  (5/1/2008)

Modern Spirits Grapefruit Honey Flavored Vodka

  1. $40
The bouquet is deftly crafted and true to its sources beginning tart and juicy and then turning milder and less acidic. The palate entry features the ripeness of the grapefruit and then evolves at midpalate into a delicately sweet/sour taste in which both flavor infusions complement each other. Finishes with more of the grapefruit influence showing.  — P.P.  (8/1/2006)

Absolut Pears Pear Flavored Vodka

  • Best Buy
  1. $19
The pear scents of the bouquet are very inviting. The palate entry is clean, ripe, fruity and keenly pear-like; at the midpalate the taste turns softly ripe and sweet. Finishes elegantly and with a last minute thrust of pear that’s vivid, crisp and authentically pear-like. An outstanding flavoring job.  — P.P.  (2/1/2008)

Finlandia Grapefruit Flavored Vodka

  1. $18
The fresh, citrusy, acidic, juicy, just-squeezed grapefruit is unbelievably attractive and genuine. The palate entry is engagingly grapefruit-like, juicy, tart and ripe; by midpalate the grapefruit flavor is so authentic tasting as to be more like an infusion. Finishes as seductively as it began.  — P.P.  (2/1/2008)

The bouquet is an aromatic trip that includes waves of pickle brine, fresh dill cuttings, pepper and herbal scents. The palate fresh and full of dill. By midpalate the taste is delicately sweet and ethereally earthy.  — P.P.  (11/15/2007)
