Seagram’s Extra Smooth Vodka (2 out of 5)

Standard

untitled

I tried this over a month ago, and I just now got around to posting. My level of enthusiasm wasn’t overwhelming trying this product. I like to mix my vodka, but I also love to have a brand that I can drink straight. This one is a vodka that is best mixed with other things- drinking it by itself left a very bitter aftertaste. Smooth going down? Yes. Extra smooth? Yes. Extra bitter, not advertised? Yes.

This 750ml bottle retails for $9.99. It is still better than Gordon’s or Smirnoff, by waves and bounds. It boasts an ABV of 40%. This particular brand of vodka is five-times distilled, with beginning notes of citrus that quickly turn into a peppery flavor, which is a shock and not altogether pleasant. It’s a grain-based vodka, and is carried in many places, so it’s not a vodka you’ll have a hard time locating. I’ve had Seagram’s whiskey, and I have to say I did like that much more than their vodka products. And yes, their wine coolers. Go ahead and make fun of me. I’m an 80’s stereotype who likes to drink wine coolers if I find them. Go ahead. Make fun. I’m just not a huge fan of this vodka. I would recommend trying it as a Bloody Mary, a Cosmopolitan, or a Russian Minx (email me for THAT recipe!). I would not recommend trying it alone. It didn’t leave a pleasant aftertaste. Some better ones: SKYY, UV, and Stoli (you can never go wrong with those three). As a $9.99 vodka, I’ve had worse. I’ve also had better.

About generationgbooks

I read a ridiculous amount of books in a ridiculously quick amount of time. I read everything- fiction, history, sports, political science, fantasy, young adults, kids, romance- everything. I have worked in books almost half of my life now, and I never get bored with them. I need an outlet for books, where I can reach many people who may or may not give a fig about my opinions. I'm kind of known for rambling about books, so I figure it's about time I get off my lazy ass and take it to the blogosphere, where I have had the great luck of meeting many wonderful people inflicted with this book-disease. Personal stuff? Not much. I work too much, I'm single so I have more time to deal with this and less to deal with BS. I'm a die-hard Duranie and 80's fan. I am way too entertained with social media and astrology(for those of you who give a fig, I'm a Capricorn, or the sexier description- a seagoat.) for mine and the world's- own good. Only insanity can result from me blogging. That said, here goes!
