An ironically named Vodka from Oregon with a smoky and exotic flare.

Westward Whiskey was founded by Christian Krogstad, who graduated from the Siebel Institute of Technology—America’s oldest brewing academy. He worked at west-coast craft breweries, then moved to a vineyard for a number of years before setting up his own gig with Westward Whiskey in 2004. His history will tell you quite a lot about the character of his products. There is a strong, blue-collar brewmaster ethos going on in everything he does. This Oregon distillery produces five signature spirits, including Aquavit, Volstead Vodka, Casa Magdalena Rum, Westward Whiskey, and a tasty coffee Liqueur.

Here at Flaviar we often talk about the “Dark Days of Prohibition” where the lovely intoxicating beverages that we adults so greatly enjoy were banned. Well, the National Prohibition Act of 1919 that started that whole nasty business is sometimes called “The Volstead Act” after Congressman Andrew Volstead from Minnesota who sponsored that unpleasant business. Volstead Vodka is… um, named somewhat ironically after him. It’s a corn-based Spirit (thus naturally gluten free) that is filtered through charred coconut husks after distillation. This yields an interesting Vodka with a smoky/exotic essence. Oh, and it earned a Gold medal at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition upon its release.

The Flavor Spiral™ shows the most common flavors that you'll taste in Volstead Vodka and gives you a chance to have a taste of it before actually tasting it.

Tasting Notes

Appearance / Color

Nose / Aroma / Smell
The nose is clean and definitely has a light coconut aroma with floral notes.

Flavor / Taste / Palate
The flavor profile is surprisingly rich for a corn-based Vodka with a distinct exotic whiff of smoke, just as they intended.

The finish is light and lingering.

Ratings & Reviews
Not much after taste, smooth drinking.
On my initial tast I was not that found of this powerful smokey scent and flavor, but after giving it a second chance I discovered under the charred, smokey, small hints of coconut nose, a hidden burst of undiscovered flavors. This Volsttead Vodka is complex and a tast that one will acquire. Strong smokey complimented with coffee flavors open the pallet filled by subtle bits of vanilla raspberry trailed by savory floral hints. The more I delved into tasting the better the flavors appeared. One that I would keep.
strong alcohol burn with little residual flavor of an kind - a decent mixer, but otherwise unremarkable
Smooth coconut flavor with a pop of smoke--don't care for vodka but has a nice taste
Ok, coconut flavor, pretty good but pretty unmemorable.
Unopinionated but nice
Very smooth although don’t get any of the flavor profile
It is a very good, creamy, Corn-Vodka that has a delicate birth; while a rich & exotic life that leads to a short & delicate death with hints of pepper, rye, passion fruit, vanilla & raspberry.
