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.
