Review: Seagram’s Extra Smooth Vodka


It’s typical for a spirit company to describe its product as “smooth,” a meaningless term that is typically used to describe spirits that don’t burn the throat. Actually putting the term on the label is something else entirely.

What makes Seagram’s bottom-shelf Vodka “extra smooth?” It’s hard to say without tasting, because Seagram’s notes only that it is distilled five times “from the finest American grain.”

Exactly how smooth is it? Let’s give this budget vodka a try and find out.

If Seagram’s is “smooth,” it’s because it is extremely sweet. A healthy dose of sugar masks whatever imperfections might be under the surface, at least at first. More industrial elements emerge in short order, showing notes of charcoal, mushroom, and raw grain elements. The finish is pungent and somewhat vegetal, though the lingering sugary character tempers all of that to some degree.

Ultimately, it’s nothing special, and while it’d be OK as a mixer, you can do better without spending much more. That said, perhaps the smoothest thing about this vodka is the price.

80 proof.

    It’s my first time trying & not impressed! That exactly why I’m here checking out other reviews.

    I rather enjoy it in a vodka tonic. That said for a little more money Pinnacle for a wheat vodka and Deep Eddy for Texas corn vodka
