Liquid Vodka

Liquid Vodka is marketed as the “most affordable hand crafted Oregon vodka” and hails from Warren, Oregon. They pride themselves on their multi-step charcoal filtration process, and high quality water.

Nose: More nutty and grainy than bready, with a touch of sweetness, along with a slight sour mash scent. The alcohol on the nose is rather pungent.

Taste: Grain, walnut, filberts, bittersweet, likely rounded, with a moderately heavy body. There’s no real burn or warmth on the taste — that’s saved for the nose and finish.

Finish: Minerals, bitterness, chalky, lingering walnut, filbert, and grain, and residual heat in the mouth and throat.

Notes: Perhaps from the freezer it has more enjoyable characteristics, but sampled warm this is not a particularly smooth vodka. It brings a fair amount of heat (maybe from rye?) to the nose and finish, which makes it a bit hard to work with, although it does work nicely as a Vodka Collins.
