This sounds like a reductio ad absurdum, but let's pursue it anyway. Can vodka be vatted? I say yes. Recently, I combined three Polish vodkas with one Russian and one from ... I can't recall, maybe Finland. The taste is just the perfect vodka. Creamy, rounded, a touch peppery (it's rectified alcohol after all) but just tasting right. On their own, I didn't find the elements as good although, after some 40 years tasting spirits of various kinds, I am convinced the Poles make the best vodka. Even the inexpensive brands have something special to them. Rye vodka in particular from Poland gets my vote, but I like my vatting. This may end up at the next SB gathering I can attend, iced.
