So, what makes Deep Eddy’s version different from all of the others on the market? Surprisingly, it is adding real lemon juice, yet keeping the proof at the usual 40%. In fact, if you wanted to make yourself a glass of super potent lemonade, all you would need to do is add some simple syrup. It’s a bit too tart to drink straight, but has a fresh squeezed flavor that takes it in a new direction unmatched by other citrus vodkas.

Deep Eddy Lemon Vodka (80 proof)
Visual: Cloudy yellow.
Nose: Sharp lemon peel and juice with a deeper alcoholic undercurrent.
Taste: Strong lemon taste with a hint of sweetness. Quite tart with a semi-viscous mouthfeel. A sort of corn-based moonshine character comes out to warm the palate mid-way and then fades again leaving a citrus afterglow.
Finish: Medium long, with a Lemonhead candy finish. Oddly enough, there seems to be more sweetness at the end than at the beginning.
Overall: A fresh, tasty lemon vodka easily mixable and almost a cocktail in itself.
GSN Rating: B+
