Proof66 Notes

The Buffalo Trace Distillery is best known for making bourbons but has also gotten involved in vodka production. Rain vodka is made exclusively from white corn (corn being a key ingredient in bourbon production and something Buffalo Trace knows a lot about). It undergoes an extensive 20-day production technique that includes cold-water sweet mash fermentation, seven distinct distillations and a polishing stage that adds pure limestone water." It was originally labeled as "organic" but has since dropped the designation.

I was really dissapointed with this vodka. It is exceptionally smooth and a fantastic price point, but has a really heavy mouthfeel, and just the most insipid nose (reminded me of sour milk). Has notes of vanilla (or something along those lines), which I found extremely distasteful. Overall, this was a very offensive vodka -- thick and insipid. My buddy wondered if I had gotten a "bad" bottle, though at this point I've found better vodka horizons. If you're buying this bottle for the economy, do yourself a favor and get a bottle of Prairie Organics ($16/750mL), which is smoother and has an amazingly superior flavor. If you want to stay very economical, and want a very clean (though not exceptionally smooth) vodka, try Luksuowa (which is usually around $10).

An excellent value for the money - half the price of "fashion victim" vodka and better tasting! A healthier, cheaper alternative to a Goose!
