With punchy raspberry candy notes on the nose, Smirnoff Raspberry is not at all unpleasant. It has ample sweetness, with chocolate and vanilla notes in there, too.

Smirnoff Raspberry is a flavored, grain-based vodka, which is the most popular and tends to be smooth and fruity. Grain-based vodkas generally do not require as much distillation as vegetable-based vodkas, as grain produces less impurities during the fermentation process. Smirnoff Raspberry has been distilled 3 times. Generally, repeated distillation will produce a purer spirit that is smoother on the palate.
