This has to be one of the smoothest vodkas I've ever come across. Even people I know who only like mixed drinks have enjoyed chilled shots of this. It does have a notable finish of grapes but the initial taste is very clean. And though it may sound strange I prefer enjoy this one all by itself.
I have enjoyed Charodei on many occasions and unfortunately the state controlled alcohol stores where I live at have stopped carrying it. This in my opinion is the best vodka for a martini! Only a few vodkas blend so perfectly with vermouth to create a smooth satisfying martini! Please I beg of you& TRY IT!!!
I know a friend who has a friend who visits Russia every six months or so. I managed to get him to bring me back a bottle. Can I say... OH MY GOD!!! This is the best I've ever had. Nothing since has come anywhere close to it. Smoother than smooth and absolutely clean with no hint of an after taste. It's like drinking pure H2o with a kick! If you can get some do it and let me know where because I would jump at a chance to get some more! Nuff said.
I'm giving Skyy a five for a few major reasons:
1. It is one of the cleanest/purist
vodkas on the market due to a
special filtration process.
2. It has a crisp neutral taste, mixes
very well and isn't bad straight.
3. You can consume an unhealthy amount
of it and wake up feeling fine the
4. Last but not least, it's pretty dang
May not be the best out there but definitely the best under $20. Don't let the low price fool you, this is the best unknown values out there!
I was disappointed in this one. I felt it was not as good as it's hype boasted it to be. It seemed to be a perfectly middle of the road vodka with no interesting characteristics what so ever. I would buy several other brands before spending the money on this one!
