Kauffman Soft Private Collection Vintage Vodka is distilled 14 times, then filtered once through birch coal, and again through quartz. It’s a sweet one. Floral and somewhat fruity on the nose, there’s a hint of both apple and almond. And you’ll notice there’s no astringency here. That initial sweetness lasts, smoothly and softly giving way to a little bit of peppery heat on the finish. If you solely drink your vodka mixed, then this won’t be the best value for you. But if you’re looking for a sipping vodka, this may well be it.
