Russki Standart is pretty much the only vodka I buy and drink anymore. Actually Standart for drinks and Platinum for drinking straight up. Finlandia ain't half bad and Stolichnaya is a really nice alternative as well. Generally I'm mostly a whiskey and rum kind of guy but I do enjoy the subtle flavors of a nice vodka as well.
i kept reading the thread title as beta testing vodka.
and now i am kinda disappointed...
other then that i can't add anything to this topic sadly i have never had more then a zip of beer and it was disgusting.
and i find most alcoholic beverages to expensive to buy and try. so if any one does have a beta testing vodka program going on i'm in?
I prefer rum & scotch but a vodka friend of mine got me to actually like one after trying dozens of other vodka brands, Russian Standard. Just get the basic version, the Imperia (premium version) doesn't taste all that great.
Commercial they did is pretty good too & quite stylish, wouldn't mind traveling through that commercial set when they were shooting it.
