Review: Wodka Vodka

Don’t let the rustic label fool you: Wodka is cheap-as-hell vodka. It’s $9 a bottle, that’s how inexpensive it is.

And yet Wodka has pedigree. It’s imported from Poland and distilled from rye, which makes it considerably ahead in the game.

The stuff is legit. Classically structured, it offers bracing yet pleasant medicinal notes, and a sweetish core. Herbal notes of lavender and rosemary are present, as are some malt-like characteristics, presumably from the rye. The vodka is overall in balance and works well from start to finish.

It is easy to make bad vodka. But it is not that hard to make good vodka. Wodka proves that with a little care and attention, quality vodka can be produced that needn’t cost $25 a bottle. Even if you don’t see it on the top shelf (and won’t call it at a bar because the drink you get will cost more than a full bottle of the stuff), this is a vodka that wholly deserves our admiration.

    Hmmm. If it’s as good as you say, Sobieski better watch out.

    Will keep a lookout for this.

    I’ve seen it all over NY and Miami – not sure where else it is yet. They have really funny billboards all over NYC.

    It’s typically $9.99 for 750ml, not for a handle (1.75L) as this review suggests.

    John – good catch. It is not $9 a “handle” but per “bottle.” Loose slang on my part.

    I have it in my store in SC….but as soon as I discovered it I was told I won’t be able to get anymore. I don’t know the reason but I am disappointed. Very good for the price…everyone I suggest it to loves it
