We recently had a vodka from Russia – but this time instead let’s choose one from a more unorthodox location. Ireland. Also this is distilled from grain for those wondering if this was a potato vodka (that’s bigotry). Anyway as you know we tend to mix up St Patrick’s Day and Cinco de Mayo – so hey close enough.
You should all be pleased that my quest to find a good bargain vodka to usurp things like New Amsterdam, Three Olives, and Wodka – because I often am not. Such is the case with our beguiled bottle of this awful vodka. Sorry Ireland, but please throw this in a cask and make it whiskey.
What they Say: “” (They say nothing)
Taste: 2.0 – Bleh, I always hate the ones that somehow taste slimy
Aftertaste: 3.0 – The aftertaste is no filet mignon either.
Burn/Smooth: 3.0 – Yeah, that burns.
Aroma: 3.0 –Well that smells exactly like how much I paid for it. Still though have to rate against all vodka’s.
Manliness: 6.0 – Well I think the Irish have decidedly let me know that I knew what I was getting into when I bought a 10 buck vodka that came from across the pond, and they did it without words. So points for being Irish and not stabbing me with a Buckfast bottle.
Vodka Tonic: 3.5 – That tastes exactly like a bad Vodka tonic that I paid 9 dollars for in a club I don’t want to be in.
White Russian: 5.0 – While that is not a good russian, it serves it’s function.
Value: 4.0 – It’s cheap the frugal in me says – yeah well so are STD’s from a truck station bathroom the rest of me says.
Google Shop Average: $10
Metric Score: 25.25/70 |+| Metric Average: 3.6 |+| Reviewer Average: 2.5
Final Thoughts: If I only had a 10 dollar bill, I couldn’t buy this because of taxes – but even if I could – I’d much rather get something that is more powerful, because if that’s what my decisions have come too, well at least it’s not this.
