Proof66 Notes

Buckeye Vodka is the brand from Crystal Spirits and made as an homage to the state of Ohio. The vodka is made from American grown grain--we presume corn but are not certain--and distilled in their continuous column still for a smooth and consistent product. They are particularly proud of the fact of distilling the water that is used to blend down the vodka for purity, rightly noting that 80 proof vodka is composed of 60% water.

Crystal Spirits is a distillery in Ohio founded by Jim Finke, Chris Finke, Tom Rabasek, and Marty Clarke. All four have Ohio roots with the Finke family going back four generations. Part of their business model was to create a new business to help the struggling economy of Ohio.

Easily as good as Grey Goose and for the price point, it is outstanding. It's got a very clean finish. Although I don't generally drink vodka without a mixer, this is one I might consider as a sipper. It seems that most vodkas taste very similar since they are all purified and lack "character" (regardless of price), but there is a definite complexity to this vodka and the beauty is in the smooth finish - it tastes a lot more expensive.

This is by far the best vodka iv ever had. It has a top shelf taste and smoothness without the high price.
