Sits in class alongside Grey Goose and Belvedere but without the reality tv crowd drinking it as a status symbol. Has a very clean yet smooth taste and can be drank neat if you have a taste for the subtle vanilla notes in it or it mixes well with most mixers. It has been my go to vodka when i feel like having a drink in comfort where it can be appreciated.
I blame myself for not buying more than one bottle when i transfered on the Reykjavik Airport. My collection holds all the Russian Standard versions, Beluga and both of the Nemiroff Premium but this one blows my mind everytime. Smooth, clear taste and yet a punch that you can not find somewhere else.
I love vodka and have drunk my fair share of premium brands, but this is without question my favourite. It super smooth and tastes great with a twist of lime and lots of ice. You have to try this before it runs out. Anyone who likes Grey Goose, Belvedere, Chopin or Wyborowa will love this. Highly recommended.
Got this on the hype I have read about it By chance i let my wife taste it first and she immeadatelt thought it tasted like Smirnoff which was diassapointing to say the least - having said that it was nice with a mixer
I was extremely disappointed to find out that this Icelandic vodka is in fact Scottish as it is distilled first in Scotland from local ingredients and then shipped to Iceland where it undergoes second distillation and lava rock filtration. I understand that farming in Iceland might be difficult and there is a need for using foreign ingredients but if I had known about it I wouldn't have bought this otherwise average although beautifully presented "Icelandic" vodka.
