Turkey on the map

[40%, sampled in Germany]

I didn’t expect much of this. Another bottle made of stylish frosted glass, another cool name, another brand that sells an image, not taste.

That’s about what I thought. But I picked it up anyway, because you never know, maybe I was in for a surprise?

the Istanblue surprise

And what a surprise it was! This vodka was really, really awesome: the initial taste was just smooooooooth, the aftertaste was rich and perfect.

Even the bottle looked good. And here’s another thing: it has a built-in dispenser that makes it very easy to fill shot glasses.

the dispenser

I love dispensers. If the bottle makes that nice gurgling sound so be it, but if it doesn’t, then I want a dispenser. I think they should make this mandatory for all vodka bottles, unless they manage to have that particular sound when you pour the stuff out.

Anyway, the bottle was great. Oh, and the price was good too (15€/700ml.

Seriously, this is a vodka brand to try out!
