“Smirnoff 3x is as good a vodka as many in the premium category, at a fraction of their price (in fact, you can almost calculate the expense of packaging and marketing by the difference in their cost).”
With a reputation of winning blind taste tests, Smirnoff embodies the classic motif of vodka as a flavorless, odorless spirit. We are a bit more discretionary here at Alcoholmanac and we found a few surprises. On the nose, we noticed a subtle, yet distinctive cocoa powder quality blended with just a shadow of botanicals. Despite this evasive nose, Smirnoff remains a neutral flavor, but has a decent weight to its mouthfeel. Unlike many of its competitors, Smirnoff has minimal burn. It finishes with a clean, subtle sweetness.
