I had some suggestions from my readers about some vodkas to go try. I just want to let those guys know that I did my best, but could not find either. I will keep looking so stay tuned!
After trying Idol, I figured I might as well try another grape distilled vodka to compare to Idol. My choice was Ciroc for this vodka taste test. As far as I remember, Ciroc was the first popular vodka distilled from grapes, feel free to leave a comment if it was another one.
Ciroc, on its own, is a great vodka. Hands down, it has the most flavor of any vodka of comparable smoothness. It has a nice mouth feel, and does not really grab my throat much at all on the way down like a lot of others. If we are going to compare it to Idol however, it is not the victor.
When it comes down to it, I would absolutely purchase another bottle of Ciroc. It was a very enjoyable vodka. It’s amount of flavor is currently unmatched compared to any other vodka to date, yet its smoothness and sophistication does not compare to the taste I had with Idol.
Stay tuned for the next bottle. I bought a vodka distilled from something completely new, so it should be good!
