Grey Goose vodka. The legendary Goose. I had been looking at this bottle in the store window for a long time. But just like Belvedere, it always seemed too expensive. So when I signed my second book deal (yes, we’re making a travelogue and an illustrated book on top of that!), I decided it was time.
Grey Goose vodka does not want to be called by its name
People don’t call this one Grey Goose. They call it the Goose. Just like they call Stolichnaya the Stoli. Anyway, that’s cool with me. I just want to fit in. So there: I am trying the Goose now!
Oh, and I had such high hopes!
There is one problem with high hopes though: you will almost always face disappointment. Or am I the only one who used to imagine the painting of the Mona Lisa to be a bit, erm… more awesome?
Anyway, the Goose didn’t disappoint. in fact it was very good. It reminded me of Belvedere. Utterly smooth taste: 10/10. Rich aftertaste: 10/10. Beautiful bottle design: 7/10. The only thing bad about it was the price (34€/700ml: 4/10).
Get this if you have something to celebrate. Have it straight, at room temperature. Treat it well.
