Штоффка – Shtoffka vodka, a Russian brand. Oh how I loved the name!
Shtoffka vodka made me silly
You know how sometimes you get an idea stuck in your head, a totally random idea, and you just can’t get rid of it? To me, it was the idea that this vodka’s brand name was somehow funny. Comical. Hilarious. I thought it was the best ever. Shtoffka. Think about it. Shtoffka. It sounds funny in English. It sounds funny in Russian. Shtoffka. I had a shot. Shtoffka. I had another shot. Shtoffka. It was getting funnier and funnier. It was starting to get annoying.
The vodka itself was okay. It was bit stingy actually, certainly not of very refined quality (6/10). And another thing about it was that it seemed to be lacking that certain aftertaste that makes good vodka so much fun (5/10). The bottle design, meh: 4/10. The price was good though, you could get this for about 15€ for 700ml, making it an 8/10.
I would recommend this for mixed drinks, not for pure enjoyment though. It’s not a bad alcoholic beverage, but remember: there are better vodka brands out there. They might not be as funny though. Or maybe…?
