Blue Ice Vodka is exceptionally smooth, crisp, light, sugary, lively, delicious, affordable liquor … and I might add – the best vodka I’ve ever had. I’m not joking, this one is a winner. Blue Ice Handcrafted American Potato Vodka as it’s full title suggests, is made in America. As the full title also suggests, Blue Ice Vodka is made from potatoes which is rare these days and very appealing to those on a gluten-free diet. I completely appreciate food products made without wheat and glutens. I believe it reduces the head-ache the next day and is also healthier for you..But what good is that if you don’t enjoy the taste of the product you are consuming? Don’t worry – Blue Ice Vodka won’t let you down.
Blue Ice Vodka Described
I went to my local liquor store to pick-up my usual martini, staple item – Taaka Vodka ($9.99 for a 1.75 Liter Bottle) – the attractive, brickish, rectangular shape of the Blue Ice Vodka bottle caught my eye – it was the first time I had ever seen this brand. The full title on the bottle explains that Blue Ice is not only made in America, but with russet potatoes which is rather rare these days. As my standards go, Blue Ice is not cheap – it sells for $22.99 per 1.75 Liter at my very competitive, local liquor store which is more than twice the price of my old, stand-by, Taaka. Life is too short – and variety is its spice, so I decided to pay more than double the price to try this very interesting looking Blue Ice vodka. On the shelf where it resided, there was a review sticker from some organization (I can’t remember it’s name, but it was something like the wine and spirits institute) that gave it a lofty numerical rating of 94 points. Of course, I had to try it.
Blue Ice Vodka Taste Rating
From the first sip, I fell in love with this vodka. Normally it takes me some time to get used to a new vodka or reach a final verdict on whether or not I think it is worth its price tag. Blue Ice Vodka is noticeably smoother than any vodka I’ve ever tried from the very first sip. From the very tip of its nose, to the middle and all the way down the gullet, this vodka never disappoints. The taste is extremely, light and crisp with just a hint of potato and sugary sweetness that seems to dissolve slowly in the palate without ever leaving an undesirable side-effect. Sobieski Vodka is a favorite bargain liquor of some vodka drinkers, but to me there is no comparison. Blue Ice is better than any vodka I’ve ever tried. After a quick internet search, I found that Blue Ice also makes a wheat vodka. I’ll save that for another day. Gluten-free consumers and all other vodka drinkers will truly appreciate Blue Ice Vodka
