Review: 666 Vodka

666 vodka666 Vodka has a name to live up to — even invoking “pure evil” on the front of the label. Made in Tasmania, Australia, this vodka is triple pot-distilled from Tasmanian barley, blended with water sourced from the pristine region here called Cape Grim. The finished product is charcoal filtered before bottling.

For all its uniqueness, 666 is typical of Australian vodkas, very mild on the nose with some hints of dessert-like sweetness, particularly light overtones of chocolate. The body is tailor-made for the sweet tooth. It is sugary but not overpowering, with a lightly bittersweet finish. That chocolate reappears here, along with some caramel notes. Very light herbal notes are here too, on a buttery body.

That said, the only real sense you get of vodka here is some light medicinal character that comes along as the spirit fades. It’s altogether very easy drinking, though vodka fans who love the funky hospital notes of Eastern bloc spirits will be dissatisfied.

80 proof.

    This is the stupidest name of all time. I wouldn’t drink it even if it were free.

    I’ve drinking some of this 666 jet-fuel now.
    The so-called “review” by Christopher Null is the complete opposite of what this vodka is actually like.
    It is not mild on the nose, it has hints of nothing, because if it did, the jetfuel stench and rank taste would completely obscure them. There is no “chocolate”.

    I regularly drink cask-strength scotches at up to 60% or so. So i’m used to drinks with flavour.

    I luv Tasmania, I wanted this vodka to be nice… but, this stuff… it’s the most revolting vodka I’ve ever tasted.
