Proof66 Notes

Ciroc vodka is distilled from grapes using fruit from both the Mauzac Blanc and Ugni Blanc wine grapes. It was one of the first grape-based vodkas on the market causing no small amount of controversy in the spirits world. The vodka is distilled to minimum specifications of alcohol levels to maximize the grape aromatics and flavors. It is properly pronounced: "Shir - ROCK".

P Diddy famously endorses Ciroc and is becoming known as Ciroc Obama.

The 2012 Beverage Testing Institute called it a "lemon gelatin candy vodka."

Wine Enthusiasts said perhaps the funniest thing about Ciroc in 2003: "Owns a peculiar bouquet reminiscent of turkey dressing."

Our own tasting notes included: "Splendid aftertaste redolent of fresh bread; hint of lime; citrus taste; nice nose and smooth; citrus aroma with pleasant smooth finish."

Ciroc is apparently distilled at a self-named distillery that also shares space with cognac producers. The product is wholly owned by Diageo in the town of Chavernverurx. (From Tristan Stephenson) The Ciroc vodka takes center-stage in the vodka wars raging about the definition of vodka and whether or not it can be made from a grape base. See, for example, Distilling.com.

smells really good and goes down well. Tastes better than midrange vodkas (titos & 42 below etc)

A smooth vodka. I'd like to think that the grapes give it a bit of real personality compared to other vodkas. It has a nice round mouthfeel which is the main virtue I look for in a vodka.

It's an interesting vodka. I was surprised to learn it's from grapes! It's pretty smooth and mixes great with anything.

Its good and very crisp, little burn at all. I imagine that it would mix well in just about any concoction.

This vodka is an easy drink. I would rate this higher but every time that I have drank this, I wake up feeling like my head has been beaten with a sledgehammer.

Its grape induced vodka. With that said its not terribly syrupy in consistency. However its a bit pricey for what youre getting.

This is not vodka, it's eau-de-vie. That said, it's good, clean, and easy to mix; it has a definite spring-water character but doesn't dominate.
