Review #1529 | Vodka Review #4

Distiller: Driftless Glen

Bottler: Driftless Glen

Brand: Driftless Glen

Selection: N/A

ABV: 40% ABV

Age: NA

Nose: Rich, buttery, lots of creamy grain sweetness.

Taste: Thin mouth feel, rich with creamy sweet flavor. No astringency, no varnish. All rich ethanol with notes of honey, vanilla bean, cream.

Finish: Short, inoffensive and cleanly wisps away. Some faint astringency here but completely docile.

Overall: One of the richer palettes of notes I’ve come across in a Vodka. I’ll take gin any day but this actually has some good character to it.

Thanks for reading!

      Hey man! I have their gin on deck for the upcoming Ginvitational. That’ll be my first expression from them that I’ve tried. Have you tried anything you’ve liked from them?

    The bourbon is pretty good….the moonshine was spicy so I added a cinnamon stick or two. It’s just down the road from my brothers house and we usually go when I’m in town from Denver. I saw you on the Chattanooga Whiskey podcast last week and you said you are in Wisconsin. I thought you might try them.

      Sweet – thanks for letting me know. I’ll be sure to check out more of their stuff since they aren’t too terribly far away from me!

      What did you think of the Chattanooga video?
