Being and nothingness

Eric Asimov returns today to the spirits, with a good entry about vodka. From time to time, I find a good non-flavored vodka that actually tastes like something (and, moreover, something good). I’ve praised Charbay on this point in the past, and they deserve it. But in most cases, I find that Asimov’s right. Vodka is boring, unless you’re drinking it straight and freezing cold, or unless it’s in a bloody mary.

As an aside, I like it when Asimov talks spirits on The Pour. I love wine, and I enjoy his writings on wine, but I also wish he’d mix it up a bit and bring the likker more often.
