Like Hank said...isn't vodka supposed to be virtually tasteless? I don't see the point in doing specialty distilling of vodka.

The stuff that Old Sugar makes--rum, ouzo, honey liqueur, and briefly brandy--these all make lots of sense, since they all have taste. I don't find it worth $30 a bottle, but I like stopping by on occasion for a couple of drinks there.

So is Rokker vodka supposed to be more tasteless than other vodkas? What exactly are you saying is worthwhile about it?

So, the perfect vodka would be indistinguishable from air, right? Because even water has flavor.

Is it just me, or is it getting kinda creepy in here?

It was creepy last Thursday night, when I'd heard from two different people asking me for Dan's contact info and/or where he worked on behalf of Rokker.....that is until both parties were informed about what was going on with all this nonsense, at which point both respectfully retracted said requests.

It's one thing to get all asshurt over an internet message board, but it's another level to pull out the telephone tree.

yes. Rökker Vodka is 100% grain.

Yahara Bay vodka is 90% corn 10% apple

both are premium vodka, and both are very good.

Mythbusters ran an episode where they taste-tested cheap vodka run through a water filter vs. top-shelf vodka. Interesting results.

Boot the fucker off the forum for spamming. He's obviously not interested in actually answering questions about what the vodka tastes like.

It "tastes" like pure ethyl alcohol, a drink best consumed at a temperature close to freezing so your tastebuds don't have to deal with it.

You want taste? Buy Coca-Cola.

Pink? That it's a polo doesn't suffice? I'm not picky about attire, generally, but I once turned down a restaurant job because they required waitstaff to wear polo shirts. I cut them short before they got to the topics of hair gel and automaton-speak. ("Is everything tasing ok today?," etc.)
