Default Alcohol that you can't smell on your breath?

I've heard there are certain types of liquor that you can't smell on your breath. I've tried vodka and gin, and I still get a strong alcohol smell. Are there really liquor's out there that you can't smell on your breath or is it a myth?

Lol so I found out.


As far as the other two suggestions, can you confirm the lack of smell?

If you drink enough, alcohol is on your breath because your lungs are emitting it.

I've heard vodka is hard to smell on one's breath.

The alcohol that is in one drink is the same that is any alcoholic drink, only the 'impurities' are different. So if it's the alcohol that is the culprit then I wouldn't think there is any drink that you would be able to hide easily.

[edit] I can't f'ing type.

All alcohol can be smelled on the breath. One can only cover it up.

Not necessarily...you could always ingest it another way. All you need is a funnel, some lube and good balance. :shocked:

HAHAHAHAHHAHA

the smell comes from the alcohol in your blood leeching out into the air in your lungs when you breathe. if you are consuming alcohol, and you are still breathing, it will be on your breath. PERIOD.

For the most part the smell of alcohol comes from the lungs(not to mention the whole of the epidermis) after it's been metabolized. It'll still be metabolized through the rear.
