Can anything that bears the same name as the singer of one of the world’s most terrible music groups be any good?

I can’t help it: whenever I hear the latin word „vox“ (voice), I immediately think of that terrible, terrible singer/sunglass-rack who calls himself „Bono Vox“. I dislike him so much I don’t even know where to..

Summary 5.8 goodish

Vox

This one is Vox vodka from the Netherlands.

Maybe I can’t be fair to a vodka called Vox vodka

I can’t help it: whenever I hear the latin word „vox“ (voice), I immediately think of that terrible, terrible singer/sunglass-rack who calls himself „Bono Vox“. I dislike him so much I don’t even know where to begin.

[begin rant] I mean, his musical oeuvre should be listed among the most horrible crimes against humanity, and oh, I don’t want to see his bloated ego ever again among democratically elected politicians. What the hell was he doing in Davos? Nobody voted for him. If you want to be a politician, be a politician! Not only has his band been torturing our ears for so many years with their definition of „stadium rock“, they are also suspected of shifting large amounts of money out of the way of the fiscal authorities in Ireland. How is that for saving the world, dude? Not to mention that his stupid sunglasses make me want to smash watermelons with a sledgehammer. Seriously, I dislike that dude so much, I was seriously considering turning my „The Longest Way“ into a „Walk Against Bono“. Why? Because fuck him, that’s why. [stop rant]

Sorry about the rant. Don’t take me seriously. You have the right to „hum rattle and roll“ all you want, nobody can take that away from you. Even if Bono is a fucking asshole. :)

Back to vodka though. This one works okay in a mixed drink, but if you consume it straight (like I do with every vodka that I taste), it is rather harsh (6/10). Also, it does not have any interesting aromas in the aftertaste (5/10). The bottle looks okay (5/10), the price was a bit higher than I expected though: 19€ for 700m, making this a 7/10.

I hope this verdict has not been tainted by my disgust for one of the most innocent words: Vox!

Overall rating: 5.75
