Partisan vodka. What a name! Apparently, this one is being manufactured in Belarus, but the brand seems to be German. I am not sure about the specifics.
Again, I have no way of knowing where this Partisan vodka is really from
Is it me or do I have a hard time finding out where these Belarusian vodkas are from? It was the same with Etalon, which I eventually declared to be Russian after meditating over the issue for a while. This one might be German. But I’ll just assume that it is Belarusian. Like a referee in a World Cup game, I’ll just make one mistake and then intentionally make a counter-mistake to make up for it.
Okay, let’s talk about this vodka.
The bottle basically just looks like someone said the word “bottle” and then went ahead and made one – I liked that very much (8/10)! The vodka itself is no kiss on the cheek. It goes down like a cat on fire (5/10). But that doesn’t mean that it’s a bad vodka. There is a certain pleasant aftertaste to it (7/10). And after all, the price is very competitive (11€/700ml: 9/10).
I recommend you try Partisan vodka this way: prepare some pickles, some dark bread and some kielbasa. Pop in some Soviet nostalgia songs, preferably “A Partisan’s Song” performed by the Red Army Choir.
Then go ahead and have your vodka.
