The issue with small batch vodka’s in America is that while they are obviously better than a lot of the other lower tier American vodkas – they are often hard to find and expensive.
I will say that it is certainly unique that for a small batch we have a number that is <50 (25) but that just gives me more pause on the ability to find this – despite it being from the Midwest. At least with a local variety like Twenty 2 they are local to us in Maine and can therefore be found.
What they Say: “This small batch vodka by Grays Peak Spirits is distilled 5 times and uses only premium American grain and charcoal filters for peak smoothness.”
Taste: 5.5 – It starts off crisper and almost medicinal, which is not really a complement.
Aftertaste: 7.0 – Thankfully though it quickly gives way to a nice creaminess.
Burn/Smooth: 4.0 – There’s a little burn, but it’s also not really as smooth going down despite the creaminess.
Aroma: 5.0 – It’s not a great smell, and there’s a bit of ethanol to it.
Manliness: 4.5 – It’s a Midwestern vodka so it’s not that manly, add the small batch and bottle design and it mostly just middles out.
White Russian: 8.5 – That is a truly damn fine russian.
Value: 4.0 – Just really not worth it, not that you could find it, which makes it worth even less.
