Absolut

When I was working at Élysée Montmartre in 2003, we used to sell mainly one vodka brand, and that one was called: Absolut vodka.

Absolut vodka is probably the vodka brand with the highest number of different flavored editions

I didn’t drink any alcohol when I was working in Paris, serving this vodka many a happy patron. But now, years later, I finally bought a bottle of Absolut and gave it a try. For old times sake. And because I wanted to learn something.

This vodka was okay: it did go down easily, which makes it rather good than bad (7/10). I guess it must be due to the fact that it has a very clean taste (you could also say it lacks aroma in the aftertaste) that so many people prefer it for mixed drinks (6/10).

The bottle design isn’t fancy but not bad either (6/10), and the price is good (14€/700ml: 8/10).

I will try the different flavored editions later. But I can say as much about this one, the original Absolut: it’s a good standard vodka. Works well in a mixed drink, but it’s nothing fancy if you drink it straight at room temperature, like you would with a high-quality vodka.

Overall rating: 6.75
