Proof66 Notes

The Belvedere Intense expression is made with what they call "New Diamond Rye" that is unfiltered in order to "magnify the rye's natural character." They recommend it specifically for a martini.

The Tasting Panel Magazine (October, 2011) named Belvedere Intense Vodka one of its Top Ten Vodkas in an exhaustive. blind tasting test of over 100 popular and premium brands.

Belvedere Vodkas are made in Poland at the Polmos Zyrardow distillery (some say the birthplace of all vodka) using Dankowski Gold Rye. The rye is considered high in starch yielding a "velvety soft" flavor to the vodka. The water is used from local water sources in Poland. The name translates as "beautiful to see."

I am very interested in trying the Belvedere Vodka Intense. More so I am intrigued by the unfiltered version. It is made with same Rye as this one but is the Unfiltered version. Black bottle with gold tree branches. I do not see the unfiltered version listed on Proof66.com. Does anyone have additional information comparing this "intense" version vs the "unfiltered" version. *** 2-19-16*** Please see review on Belvedere Unfiltered Rye Vodka.

I drink my Wódka neat or as a chilled martini sans vermouth or vegetative garnish. Belvedere Intense lives up to its name when consumed neat. There is an initial bite that dissipates quickly to a smooth finish that retains a rye tone and a hint of dark savory spice. Others may describe a finish of cream caramel, but each palate is unique and I would be hard pressed to concur with that assessment. I would recommend this variant of Belvedere with a plate of unadulterated herring, but not probably caviar. During an evening of reckless abandonment I’d probably do a few vodka flutes poured straight and dispense with the sipping in favor of passionate guzzle.
