Callicounis Imperial vodka. I found this on the island of Rhodes. Not the one in the United States, but the one in Greece.

Why Callicounis Imperial vodka is not imperial at all

This one was 50% alcohol. I initially bought it because I needed a disinfectant for a blister on my foot. When you have a blister, you need to open it with a needle, drain it from all the fluids and then sterilize it. If you do this and let it dry over night, you can walk again the next day.

Thing is I didn’t have a needle, so I had to use a knife. And I didn’t have a disinfectant, so I had to use Callicounis Imperial, which didn’t work out that well. But I didn’t know that yet when I decided to drink what was left of it.

So how was it then?

Well, this vodka burned like the hot sun (2/10). It had a cruel aftertaste (3/10) and came in a nasty plastic bottle (2/10). It was basically a nightmare. The price was superb though (around 8€/700ml: 10/10).

I can’t really recommend this for anything. Not even for sterilizing purposes.

In hindsight, I regret not keeping the bottle though. Would have made for an awesome water container. Imperial!
