Kamchatka Vodka 750mL

Okay let’s go back to vodka then considering how that rum went. Oh no, it’s another bottom basement shelf review vodka. Ladies and gents – if you are paying 8 bucks for a bottle of a base spirit – I’m sorry but in no way is that possibly a deal – the bottle and shipping is like 8 bucks even in bulk.

See at the intial onset the Russian name is enough to make you think – well okay it’s cheap and bottom shelf, but if it’s Russian it can’t be worse than Gordon’s or Mr. Boston. It is though, and that’s liekly because it was made in Kentucky by a large corporation – who should be shot. (Honestly we like the Suntory Whiskey, but when you buy companies that make this shit, you suck just a little bit more.)

 

What they Say: “Kamchatka is one of the largest selling vodkas in America. Its smooth, crisp taste makes it excellent year round for entertaining and mixability. ”

 

Taste: 3.0 – It’s nearly okay but even before the aftertaste turns it’s still pretty bad.

Aftertaste: 1.0 – Holy shit that’s bad.

Burn/Smooth: 2.0 – It’s not as much actual burn, but it’s part that, and part just not going down nicely at all.

Aroma: 3.0 – That smells pretty bad, but it could be worse so – yeah?

Manliness: 2.5 – One of the largest selling in America? Well yeah for hobos and drunks maybe. And one of? You’re not even the pro-choice amongst idiots? This gets some points for being Russian named, and is taken away by being made in Kentucky.

Mixability: 4.25

Vodka Tonic: 4.5 – It’s okay.

White Russian: 4.0 – That’s at least a half-decent russian.

Value: 2.0 – While I rate it above the Mr. Boston because it mixes slightly better. I got a nip of this and by virtue of paying I paid too much, and I’d rather take the 8 dollars I would spend, blend it, and drink that.

Google Shop Average: $8

Final Thoughts: I bought a bunch of random nips in order to not have to buy full bottles of things, and it appears where nips are concerned ‘tiers’ are not as clear cut.

  1. Put it in the freezer, where I allways keep my Vodka and 9/10 of it froze….almost zero alcohol and 95 percent water…
    WTF

  2. Hi

    I bought the 1.75 Bottle of Kamchatka at the Davis-Monthan Air Force Base Class 6 Store for $9.80 I either drank it as a martini or with cranberry juice. I think the price is right considering a well vodka at applebees is $3.50 during happy hour. Any body agree with me.

    1. I am not a credible source on this. However it is a practice to put edible gold flakes into beverages. If however the flakes seem uneven, or other bottles in the store do not have the same flakes – you might want to fore-go drinking said beverage. While it’s unlikely the small dose of flake is harmless – I am not a doctor or a chemical analyst capable of telling you what it is.

  3. Omg someone brought this to our St Patrick’s Day party and it almost killed some of us! Thank God my husband loves me and bought me some Titos! I don’t know who brought this but…shame on you! LOL HAPPY ST PATRICK’S DAY 2017 GOD BLESS

  4. I drink Vodka straight, I hate the taste of K Vodka…But apparently, my friends think that this Vodka me good….I’ll have to take there word for it 🙂
