Someone turned me on to this vodka about 10 years ago and I've been drinking it ever since! I am a true vodka drinker and have never tasted anything smoother. It's the best taste and buy for your buck!

Reviewer: Joe Revezzo

I was a big Sobieski supporter. BUT, no longer as the last three bottles I bought (from different merchants) did not have the little plastic pourer insert. This is difficult if you're used to counting out the measurement in each drink. Now I have to use a measuring glass to measure each drink as the Vodka pours out rapidly without this insert. What gives? Are they cutting back??? Very disappointed!!!
Reviewer: Marge

being a huge fan of the original i was disappointed with the aggressiveness of this vodka. i'll pass on this and stick to my regular russian standard.
Reviewer: steve chelmicki

Very smooth!
Reviewer: Giselle Conheeney

Yes, This is an excellent vodka. Nothing fancy, no extra flavors or infusions, but a solid, clean and smoothly textured vodka with little burn.
Reviewer: Mark

One of the best I've had. I like Ciroc and Belvedere and Fris is at the top of my list.
Reviewer: TOP

Every time I've purchased it I have an extremely difficult time opening the bottle
Reviewer: R. Bates

Used to be a staple in my house but I read labels and I don't want "natural flavors" in my vodka. It's much too vague.
Reviewer: Hannah

I've never gotten sick after drinking Crystal Palace, Its not Grey Goose, for the price you can't beat it.
Reviewer: Tom V

As a college student I know that this vodka isn't great, but mixed emwith lemonade or in a slushy is pretty good, it's helped me get undercover wasted many a time.
Reviewer: The jett

I give it 5 stars!!! I usually have a banging headache after a good drinking night....no hang over and I feel good.
Reviewer: Jemel

I am a new consumer of Vodka. What I look for in a vodka is Smoothness, Ethanol taste, after taste, and the feeling of it going into my stomach. I am rather sensitive and don't enjoy the ethanol taste. I find this vodka to be very good when consumed neat from the freezer. I found it had zero burn, little taste, and felt nice going down. This I feel is a smooth vodka that will be stocked on my shelf regularly.

Unless my vodka got switched with nyquil, this bottle is essentially a sleeping drink. Let me start with the very few pros: price and taste. It is an extremely cheap bottle which suits my college lifestyle and the taste is rather smooth, which makes it easy to go down. However, I have never hated being drunk more. I am "drunk" right now writing this review and I bet no one could tell. This vodka gives none of the drunk effects which we like, aka dancing, energetic, outgoing. This makes me want to sleep more than going out. I never thought I'd ever experience this with alcohol before but thanks to Pinnacle, I can... Never buy this. I'm warning you. You are welcome.

I live in PA, liquor stores here don't usually carry Vox but during the Christmas holidays it was available, well I bought a bottle or 2 every week while supplies lasted. Vox became my favorite. Wish Vox we're always available to me, missing you Vox!
Reviewer: Kris

Great local product , Keep up the good work
Reviewer: Bernard Franke

I like all the flavors but pinnacle whipped. It's sooo freaking strong. Gross as hell.
Reviewer: Derrick

I don't understand this hype about Tito's. Harsh going down and horrible bitter after taste. I've gotten 3 bottles 3 different times, all the same. I see nothing but 5 star review which confuses me. Am I getting a bad batch?
Reviewer: Dylan

Better than many of the vodkas out there. Especially when you consider this is an inexpensive vodka. Smooth and great aftertaste.

The tops are nearly impossible to open!!!
Reviewer: Mary

Not really a problem with the taste. It's the damn lid that takes every muscle of my husband's to open!!! Guess if he wasn't home I wouldn't be having a cocktail!! Change the lid!!!
Reviewer: Katrina

This is the Gold Standard for Russian vodkas. It sells for $60 Canadian where I live, but on sale at $50 I'll treat myself to a bottle.
Reviewer: Allan Swartz

Unexpected smoothness. Poured a glass over ice, splash of oj and you are off to the races. Recommended.

The best citrus vodka I've ever had, beats all the big boys!!♡
Reviewer: Ilona Osborne

Living in Austin I have mostly drunk Tito's. Which is a great vodka. But Ketel One has a lot more going on and is overall imho a much better vodka.
Reviewer: DG

I've been enjoying your vodka for many years but that is over now... I don't need to hear about social justice BS from any company Not interested in your pride stickers/buttons... i have great family and friends that are gay and I love them.... we all agree that this pride thing is getting out of control.
Reviewer: Kj
