Shohona Platinum

Shohona Platinum

Why would you put mediocre stuff in a nice bottle?

I drank this one on a nice day in Khujand, and I was in good company. The bottle looked a lot better than that of Tajikistan. Worthy of the label Platinum? Not so sure. It did have the nice ground glass look that we know from top brands like..

Why does a vodka with this kind of name come in a bottle like this?

This one is called Tajikistan, and (of course) it’s from the country of Tajikistan. I got it in Khujand when I was there in June 2017, and I found myself wondering: would it live up to its impressive name?
