Can the biggest distiller in the country hold up to its other East European rivals?

This one is called Stumbras Pure vodka, and it is from Lithuania. I didn’t get it there, though, I bought it on a trip to Poland, thinking it was from there. Looking back, I think I must have looked a bit weird at the grocery store when my whole shopping cart was filled with different vodka bottles. But anyway..

Summary 7.8 peachy

Stumbras Pure

This one is called Stumbras Pure vodka, and it is from Lithuania. I didn’t get it there, though, I bought it on a trip to Poland, thinking it was from there. Looking back, I think I must have looked a bit weird at the grocery store when my whole shopping cart was filled with different vodka bottles. But anyway…

There is something sweet about Stumbras Pure vodka

When I got home and examined my treasure, I was surprised to find that this one was from Lithuania, not from Poland. So I decided to give it a try before some of the others. The label read „Every Perfectly Pure Drop“, and on the back it said „Devotion To Nature“ – not bad for a 40% vodka that is going to get you wasted if you finish the bottle, eh? I googled it, and apparently, Stumbras was the biggest distiller in Lithuania, and this was their top product. So how about it, then?

First the price: I got this half liter bottle for 7,50€, making it a 11,25€/750ml and thus a 9/10. The bottle design was okay, I decided to add a point because it had that nice built-in dispenser: 6/10. The stuff tasted good, it wasn’t exactly totally smooth, but there was a sweet note to it that I really liked (8/10). And here is where it got nice: it somehow managed to carry some of that sweetness into its aftertaste (9/10).

This was a good vodka with a sweet note: 7.75.
