Like everything else coming out of New Zealand truly excellent, not quite as good as some other vodkas like Beluga and the like but puts ones like smirnoff to shame. trying to get my hands on the Kiwi flavour at the moment, hopefully it'll be very nice :)
Without a doubt one of the best vodkas i have ever had the pleasure of trying, smooth with very little burn and love the bottle as well with its hammer for opening the wax seal.
well worth the price [about £50 here in London] although it makes it a rare treat.
simply amazing, no other way of putting it.
Amazing, words dont do this drink justice. On the expensive side but well worth it!
I remember walking into the local sainsburys [UK super market for those who dont know] and asking the store attendant for a bottle of Smirnoff [I was feeling poor] and the nice gentleman suggested i try Russian Standard. 2 weeks later, after pay day, i come back and order a bottle from the same chap and well what can i say, always take advice from Russian store clerks ... they know their vodka! Excellent stuff, not the best but definitely very drinkable!
Ive had better but i'd definitely recomend this one, had many an enjoyable night out on this one!
I would truly love to give this drink 5 stars but i'm going to knock off a star for the fact you'll have to sell your liver [hehe] to afford this stuff. Otherwise though it is easily the king of Vodkas, trully amazing; very smooth and crisp, no burn and very easy on the palate. Goes very well with a good caviar to!
If you can afford it go for it otherwise i'd stick to the silver/noble line from Beluga!
I'd like to say its cheap and cheerful but its neither, for 2/3 price [here in the UK] i can get a bottle of Stoli, far better and doesnt taste like Jet Fuel... The only uses for this swill are mixing [if you have nothing else to use] or for use as an industrial solvent...
Way over priced and way over hyped, dont get me wrong its perfectly drinkable but i'd far rather buy a bottle of Beluga for a few quid more...
you get what you pay for with this ... for £12 a litre its good for mixing with but truly disgusting to drink on its own ... tastes like jet fuel.
After hearing my friend rant and rave about this Vodka for months i finally decided to buy it to see what the fuss was about... my my what a mistake, as another poster has said i may aswell drink a bottle of Dior for all the difference it would make...
If you're looking to give your insides an industrial strength cleaning then this is the vodka for you. If, however, you actually want a nice vodka avoid this swill like the plague! It'd probably be more pleasurable to drink jet fuel...
