Proof66 Notes

Finlandia vodka is said to be made from "untouched" glacial spring water. They do nothing to filter the water believing that "nature's filter" of a 10,000 year old moraine provides the perfect purification method. The vodka is made from Finnish six-row barley--they claim that the "midnight" sun of Finland's summer weather provides unusually good growing conditions for an excellence of product.

Great if you like the favour. I tend to prefer smoother vodkas. However, I do appreciate the nice tail.

Nothing special, would probably take Absolut or Stoli over this but if it's all that's there it's not awful.

I like this stuff. It is a bit more expensive than the very good Luksusowa or Sobieski, but is very good. It is bold and peppery but not harsh. I drink room temp or with frozen orange slice. Barley (for you single malt folk). Again, the water source, if true is a credit. It has a sweet finish, but not objectionable. I tried to open a 1.75L bottle; the cap came off, but the innards remained, a plastic plug filling the neck. I had to cut it with a knife and then use pliers to get it out. Needless to say, I 'll get something I can open without a toolbox from now on. That's the consequence of American ownership who value hype over quality. Save a pennies on the caps, lose out on sales. Finlandia may be an import, but the American ownership will downgrade quality to American standards regardless. I suppose they'll go to plastic bottles soon for this Brown-Forman product. My comments on what's in the bottle remain, unedited. I just won't purchase the stuff again.

Fairly neutral spirit all the way around. Light with not much of a presence or anything distinguishable so I imagine most any vodka drinker would enjoy .(For what it's worth I'm not a vodka drinker)

Really drinkable, one of the vodkas that can be drunk mixed on neat and taste really great but, not so fast, is not Belvedere, just not yet Finlandia

It's the slightly better than average vodka. The only thing that stands out from other Vodkas is that they use clean water from the glaciers and the same water grows their barley. Used to be my go to Vodka until I started trying others.

Yep, 4 star's about right. Vaguely complex flavor. I think I prefer Luksusowa in this price range (even cheaper, actually). Probably a bit better than the Skyy's and Pinnacle's and such.
