Liquor Review Notes:
Smirnoff began with Piotr A. Smirnov in Moscow who was commissioned to produce vodka by the government after he was the first to filter the spirit in charcoal, removing impurities and making a consistent quality. It literally revolutionized the distilling world. After some success, the Smirnov family was forced to flee Russia in the revolution in 1917 when all private businesses were confiscated. Vladamir Smirnov adopted the French spelling of the name Smirnoff and from there began producing again. Smirnoff vodka, in 1934, became the very first vodka to enter the United States. (The Complete Book of Spirits by Anthony Dias Blue.)
There has been legal dispute over the name Smirnoff but today it is consolidated with Diageo and once again is produced in Russia. It is the number one selling spirit in the world today.
Smirnoff No. 21--the red label vodka found nearly everywhere--is a grain neutral spirit made in large column stills but using the charcoal filtration process invented and patented by Vladamir Smirnov himself. Diageo claims that Smirnoff is the top-selling brand in the world and, if true, it is on the back of this vodka.
Smorniff Whipped Cream Flavored Vodka is one of the new flavored expressions from the brand taking advantage of the new dessert and candy-oriented sensation. We presume it is the an infusion using the No. 21 blend (which is the case with most of the flavored Smirnoff expressions), that somehow manages to instill the flavors and aromas of whipped cream through the magic of science.

Sweet, creamy, vanilla-y. Mouthfeel even comes off like a product with fat in it. Better living through chemistry, I guess -- I think I'd rather have real whipped cream on an Irish coffee, but that's me.
