Belvedere Heritage 176 Review

Before focusing on this wonderful vodka, we should note that — technically speaking — it isn't one. Belvedere Heritage 176 is made using a blend of Belvedere Vodka (98 percent) and malted rye spirit (2 percent). As the second, smaller part of that blend is initially distilled to 92 percent ABV versus the 96 percent ABV legal minimum, bodies such as the TTB dictate that this spirit cannot be labeled simply vodka. But labels and labeling terms be damned, for this is among the finest, most-enjoyable vodkas on the market. Subtle aromas of malted rye kick things off, quickly followed by pleasant fruity tones. The palate serves nuanced, dynamic malt flavors, and simply grips the attention. Sip neat, add soda, or do whatever you want — but be sure to buy a bottle and try for yourself.
