Review: Krome Vodka

Review: Krome Vodka

krome vodkaThis “world’s greatest vodka” is made in Bend, Oregon, where it is distilled from locally grown corn and blended with water from the Cascades. It’s bottled in a distinct, opaque black bottle. Thoughts follow.

You’ll find caramel notes on the nose, but otherwise it’s a very simple and clean spirit. The finish — driven, the company says, by the corn in the mashbill — offers light chocolate, some vanilla, and other mildly dessert-like notes, but otherwise it’s quite easygoing. Light medicinal notes are laced throughout the experience, from the nose to the finish, but the denouement returns to the sweet stuff for a last gasp on the tongue. Overall: Quite versatile and worthwhile.

80 proof.
