A classic Russian vodka, clean and crisp with a little bit of grain flavour. Perfect for drinking straight, as is the Russian way, Beluga has become a huge word of mouth success story since first pitching up on these shores in 2009. Beluga is made, unusually, with barley malt spirit, and is very lightly flavoured with honey and extracts of oat and milk thistle.
My fave and one of the top dogs imho. :) Smoother than Belvedere and Ketel One I've tasted recently - not too sweet like some other players in the market, but the best taste and finish hands down.
The water is the key in vodkas and although there are others that went under many distillation processes, Beluga's silky smoothness is definitely giving a run for their money. ;)

A Russian neighbour on our Costa del Sol development gave me a bottle as I was raving about the finer points of Grey Goose. Beluga is just the business the absolute Rolls Royce of vodkas in my opinion.

I am married to a lady of Russian origin, and as such am privy to many aspects of Russian culture , and not least, vodka. I have tried many Vodkas of various origins, Moldavian, Polish, Ukranian, and even the French version, Grey Goose, but since I had tried Beluga, simply there has been no other equal. It's in a league of its own by virtue of it's quality that is truly relected by the taste and the ease of drinking, that can be radical with vodka. It is Noble!

Bought it on an impulse in London one day and regretted it by the time I'd gotten home, however upon trying it just wow! Easily one of the best vodkas I have ever had, blows other premium vodkas like Grey Goose, Ciroc etc. Out of the water and makes drinks like Smirnoff comparable to jet fuel!

After spending a period of time in Siberia, whenever I asked a local what the best Russian vodka was, Beluga was always the answer. Highly recommended. And best served straight from the freezer, in true Russian style!

Tried it in a bar in Barcelona recently, one of the finest vodkas om the market, a must buy for anyone that appreciates luxury vodka. Miles above brands like Grey Goose.
