Review: J.T. Meleck Louisiana Vodka – Drinkhacker

Drinkhacker: The Insider's Guide to Good Drinking

J.T. Meleck Louisiana Vodka is a grain-to-glass product made from rice, which is something Louisiana knows a lot about. Vodka? It’s less of a staple around these parts, so let’s see what Meleck can do with this tricky spirit.

Boldy grainy and a bit on the funky side, the vodka offers aromas of sesame seed and a touch of white pepper. The palate surprises with a slight sweetness and a light oatmeal character, touched with a hint of brown butter. The finish brings both worlds together, a chewy number that offers notes of toasty grain and some sweet coconut — though the focus remains pretty squarely on an earthy, burlap character that feels more white whiskeylike than vodkaesque.

Ultimately it’s a bit wild as far as vodka goes, but it makes for a fair enough (and reasonably affordable) mixer.

80 proof. Reviewed: Batch #720.
