This one is called Beluga vodka. And it’s one of the finest brands you can find in the whole of Russia.
One of the best vodka brands is named Beluga vodka – after a whale
It’s a premium vodka. It also comes in a gift box edition together with a little brush that you can apparently use to swipe the bottle before opening it or something. But I didn’t get that box. I just got the bottle. And for 31€/700ml, it didn’t come cheap (4/10).
What about the vodka itself though? It says “finest quality” next to the whale on the label, and it says “noble Russian vodka”. Much like many other vodka brands that are aiming at the top shelf in the liquor stores, this one seems to be setting the bar pretty high for itself.
And it didn’t fail. The vodka is perfect, it is absolutely smooth (10/10), and the aftertaste is aromatic and lasting (10/10). I liked the bottle design mostly because I like whales (8/10). And I was sad when the bottle was finally empty.
If you don’t mind spending a bit more and you want to have some of the finest vodka around – try this one!
