    Oak Aged Vodka - I mean really???

    It seems the new Absolut Amber has pushed the envelope just a bit farther in the "flavored vodka" category as this blog notes.

    Hmm, I think not.
    That yella whiskey runnin' down my throat like honey dew vine water and I took another slash…

    Flipping through a magazine in a waiting room and I saw an advert for Twenty Grand Vodka Infused Cognac

    Bastardization of spirits? A genuine new "liquor"? Just another marketing ploy aimed at the club hopping scene?

    "Vodka infused with..." is a pretty elegant way to say "blend" isn't it?

    This is making me thirsty for some Beam's Eight Star Vodka Infused With Kentucky Whiskey.

    They like to say 'infused with' rather than costs more.

    And I am sure they are going to use a "premium" cognac for "infusing"....is it a Vodka infused with Cognac or a Cognac infused with Vodka and does it matter?
    Afterall, the website claims it is a "lifestyle". No details...no proportions, no indication of the difference between the White and Black labels, no indication of source etc.

    I get this image of them storing barrels of cognac in the same warehouse with the tank of vodka for a spell and calling it 'aged together'.

    I will give them this, if they sell enough of it they will have been successful in liberating the club scene drinkers from their "hard earned" money ala Lindsay L and
    various Kardashians - so all the best to them in this very commercial enterprise.

    Surprising what can be done with an empty Cognac barrel and some vodka to slosh around in it.

    Re: Oak Aged Vodka - I mean really???

    Maybe some of us should come up with a "lifestyle" beverage company! Think of the infusions possible. Hire Gary Gillman as master infuser and get on the way to "mega bucks"!

    Hmm...."Irina Vatted premium vodkas", Canadian Rye Rum, Irish Whisky Cinnamon Swirl, Single Birch Barrel oat whiskey infused with sorghum.

    I am not too far off...http://beeradvocate.com/beer/profile/20417/53541
    White Birch Barrel Aged Tripel - White Birch Brewing

    Rise and Shine Breakfast Vodka - premium vodka infused with bacon, eggs and grits...and a touch of maple syrup.
