Palate: Bitter lemon first, then grassy notes of dry summer and iced tea.
Finish: More hay and wild flowers, and then finally cereal and a grainy sweetness.

Smirnoff No. 21 Vodka, now made in several countries around the world, has origins in Russia. In 1864, Pyotr Smirnov founded his distillery in Moscow. Years later under his heirs' ownership, the distillery was lost during the Russian Revolution in 1917 when the Bolsheviks took control. Vladimir, one of the sons, fled and wound up in France where he established another distillery. He gave that distillery a French version of his last name, Smirnoff. In 1934, Vladimir sold the rights to Rudolph Kunett to sell Smirnoff in the US and Canada where Kunett had established a distillery in Connecticut. The ownership has changed a few times, but is now owned by Diageo. Smirnoff is distilled via continuous distillation and made from grain.
"Smirnoff No. 21 Vodka is fairly neutral on the nose save a few dusty grain notes.
The vodka feels soft on the palate with a touch of grain sweetness, but is mostly neutral. A little oily. Finishes clean and a touch spicy.
