Question by mark: Is the difference between whiskey and vodka just the oak barrel aging of whiskey and the filtering of vodka?
Both whiskey and vodka can be made of the same grain
Both are distilled
Whiskey is then normally aged in wood where vodka is not
Vodka is sometimes distilled multiple times and is also typically filtered whereas whiskey is not filtered
Is that it for the differences? Or is there something I am missing
Answer by brian c
your on the mark. Vodka, the better ones are filtered many times… thats what makes it so smooth!
