Coming into this experiment, I had some doubts as to the methodology as well as the subjective manner in which the results would be judged, not to mention a health distrust for anyone who would voluntarily drink Vladimir vodka warm and straight.
Amazingly, though, after the 4th filtration, I came to a startling conclusion: The Filtered vodka tasted better than the control fluid (Ketel One). It was smoother, and had a very delicate aftertaste. Of course, people may claim that it is the aftertaste that is what really gives vodka its flavor, but if you’re drinking Vladimir, I certainly hope you weren’t drinking it for taste!
Now, filtering works. As fantastic and far-fetched as it seems, what you have after you’ve passed Vladimir through the Brita sufficiently is a fluid worthy of enjoying straight. In fact, some conjectured that it could be passed off as higher quality vodka, if you’re the sort of person who keeps empty Gray Goose bottle lying around.
