GSN Review: Ketel One Vodka

2_1808175_3

When I think of The Netherlands, I imagine windmills, tulips, wooden shoes and Jenever.  The Nolet Distillery does indeed make Jenver, but I haven’t had the pleasure of tasting any of theirs (yet).  Luckily, one of the other products they create is readily available here in the US.  Ketel One Vodka is distilled from 100% wheat in copper pot stills, charcoal filtered, and rested in tile lined tanks.  The brand name comes from their original copper pot still, the Distilleerketel #1.  So, now you know!

Ketel One Vodka (80 proof)
Visual: Clear.
Nose: Marshmallow and whipped cream, with lighter notes of mint, ginger and a spring-like florality.
Taste: Ultra smooth, with a lovely sweetness that plays well with the inherent pepper spice.  A lovely mouthfeel with a heavier and richer body.
Finish: Medium-short leaving lingering notes of sweetness.
Overall: A terrific vodka that works just as well in chilled shots as it does in vodka based cocktails.  Over three centuries of distilling skills shine throughout this spirit.
GSN Rating: A
