Blue Ice expands its line of vodka the month with this second rendition.
The original was made of potatoes, this one’s (as the name suggests) distilled from organic wheat. Incidentally, the bottle’s clear this time around, making the name a bit of a misnomer, but hey, it’s what’s inside that counts.
Funny then that Blue Ice’s wheat edition doesn’t cut a substantially different profile than its earlier edition. Blue Ice 2.0 has a hearty medicinal character, is a bit oily on the palate, and washes down clean. There’s not much to it after the quick finish, making Blue Ice Wheat fine for mixing but uninspired on its own.
Of course, the USDA certified organic should attract more than a little interest, but now you’ll find a veritable ton of organic vodkas on the market, many of which are less expensive.
