Another week and we still haven’t heard from Justice, though a Cambodian Monk has told us that “He is the envy of angels on earth.” So this week we carried on and went to a farm, where there were goats, a robot, and vodka. Since this isn’t Honest Robot-Goat Reviews, let’s move on to this weeks review Wodka vodka, which comes from Poland.
Now Wodka has recently been making some waves as a really good cheap vodka winning a bunch of recent awards and such. Since these are the people who leave reviews of 96/100 in stores we hold no trust in what they say. Don’t take that as a sign of things to come though, while it may look plain (and possibly soon to be devoured by goats) Wodka as a bargain vodka does very well for itself.
The owner of Wodka stated that he could sell his spirit for $25 and should because he’d make more money like that, however he sells it at $9-10 bucks because it’s about what the average person wants to buy. Now I wouldn’t call this a $25 dollar vodka – more like a $14-15, but it’s great taste and even better mixing ability make up for the burn and smell it gives you.
This is vodka at it’s best (being outside of Russia) it’s clean, creamy, cheap, no wank, and it’s very simple. Even their bottle gives no indication of some ulterior motive.
What they say: “PRZEDSIEBIORSTWO
Product of Poland”
Taste: 7 – Great initial taste. Nice and creamy. ZBot tastes plastic, but unsure of composition. It is not torlon, phenolic, FR10, or FR4
Aftertaste: 5.5 – Carries some of the taste but not enough, for the most part it’s average.
Burn/Smooth: 3.875 – It loses points here, because it does go down like cheap vodka.
Aroma: 5.25, – Very strong alcohol smell. Not a very strong presence by the Buffalo.
Honesty: 6.67– We like the simplicity of the bottle. It looks like Smirnoff, but it’s simple and there’s no wank or text at all. Plus the sentiment of the owner being like I could charge 25 but instead I charge 10 is something we can get behind.
Russian: 6.5 – Buffalo really enjoys. It’s a nice creamy russian.
Vodka Tonic: – 5.25 Some nice tonic water.
Value: 7 – For a cheap vodka that’s a good price.
Google Shop Average: $10

It’s a good vodka, and if you need something under 10 bucks do it. However since Three O 1.75L can usually be found for under a $20 it’s better to buy that. So in the end there’s not much wow here but it’s a good bargain buy.
Editor’s Note: Back when we were on Nerdfit there was a bit of a kerfluffel from Wodka about our review. Now they’ve sort of been really bad at PR, but for our formal response – see here.
