No 57 is my personal favourite of the Smirnoffs. While its smell and flavour are nondescript, a pleasant gentle rolling burn on the tongue (no doubt from the extra 5% we are given) lends interest to this vodka, and it is fairly gentle on the swallow. Re: black vs. blue, I’d have to say blue, simply because I thought black (No 55) tasted more like a tequila than a vodka. However, I'd recommend buying both to enjoy alongside each other.

Yeah, but Black is 40% compared to this at 45%. Two totally different beasts to someone who really enjoys their vodkas.

Buy the Smirnoff Black Vodka instead. For the extra £1, you will see that the difference is huge.
