Danzka vodka. Guess where this is from? Yes. Denmark.
Danzka vodka is one of the better Nordic classics
My physician likes to talk about things. Whenever I show up, there is always something that both have an interest in. Sometimes it’s Russia. Sometimes it’s politics. And this one time, it was actually vodka. “Danzka“, he said to me: “I like Danzka. You have to try it!”
So try it I did. You can find it in any large grocery store around here, so I went right there on the way home from the physician and picked up a bottle. And this is no ordinary bottle. It’s made of… aluminum? Sort of reminded me of one of those Swiss Sigg bottles, the ones that the equipment nerds always used to carry.
Anyway, I am going to say it right away: my physician is a good physician, and he has good taste in vodka. But there are better brands than this one.
Danzka is a rather sweet vodka. It burns in the mouth more than it does in the throat, but it is not smooth enough to be called excellent (7/10). The part where it gets fun is once you reach the sweet aftertaste. I actually enjoyed that a lot (8/10). The Sigg-like bottle design is a nice touch (8/10). I liked the price a lot: you can get this for around 13€/700ml, making it a good 8/10.
If you are going to try one of the big Nordic vodka brand names, trust my physician: Danzka is one of the better ones.
