    can charcoal filtered vodka be straight bourbon whisky?

    Looking at this TTB entry for Senator's Club "charcoal filtered Vodka, distilled from grain" : https://www.ttbonline.gov/colasonlin...13106001000117 , the class is listed as "Straight Bourbon Whisky"

    Can this be right? I didnt think vodka could be classed as straight bourbon whisky.

    They just put the wrong class code down which is a pretty common occurance. What's important is what's actually on the label.

    No, but a lot of people claim that you can turn cheap vodka into premium-tasting vodka by running it through Brita filters.

    You can also make water taste like premium water by running it through a Brita filter.

    Seriously? This is why I think Vodka drinkers are ill in the head.
    If you have anything Michter's or Pennco and would like to sell it or share it with me, please let me know.

    Whenever folks I know who are into vodka talk about "it is so pure - it doesn't even taste like alcohol", I inquire why they don't buy some Everclear and dilute it in their favorite water. A few looked at me like I was on to something
