Featured Best Buy Booze — Burnett’s Whipped Cream Vodka


September 5, 2011 — Burnett’s Whipped Cream Vodka

Fall has finally come to western Kansas. The past two days the temps haven’t gotten above 80. This is an amazing change after the record-sitting 50+ days of 100+ degree temps all this summer. Not only was it tolerable to step outside, it was actually pleasant. In light of that, and the start of football season, we’re going to start moving along to some more fall-like liquors. We’re leaving the light and bright behind for the heavier.

We’re dipping back in to the Burnett’s catalog this week. You may recall that earlier this summer we featured one of the distilling giant’s newer flavors — Orange Cream. This week’s is another one that I tend to regard with a raised eyebrow — Whipped Cream. As we’ve mentioned in the past, I’m not a huge fan of hyper-sweet. Jenn is. So, sometimes you make sacrifices in the name of love.

As we’ve mentioned in the past, Burnett’s can be brutal in its unadulterated form. However, they consistently make flavored vodkas that are good for mixing. Just don’t expect to be drinking these on the rocks by themselves, unless you really like some burn in your booze.

Nose:

Very sweet nose. There isn’t much of a distinct “whipped cream” scent, simply a sweet, vanilla whiff. Not as strong vanilla scent as the Absolut Vanilia we featured last week. Definitely a stronger sugar scent on the end.

Neat:

Definitely sweet, creamy flavor. Much like the Orange Cream, there some heat that lingers on the end. Heavier than some vanilla vodkas we’ve had. The taste is definitely a sweet cream.

On the Rocks:

Burn is taken off quite a bit. Nice, smoother. Not nearly as harsh as some of the other Burnett’s we’ve tried. However, be warned that this is an incredibly sweet base liquor. It’s almost a liqueur, truthfully. So you’re going to want to be very careful while mixing this bastard.

Cheers!
