I stayed in and had some of that good Столичная – Stolichnaya vodka today. This is a Russian brand that seems to be mainly targeted at foreign markets. The guys in Mad Men are having this all the time, so I was pretty excited to try it out myself. Something that’s good for Don Draper can’t be bad for me, right?
Cool people don’t say Stolichnaya vodka
Of course the Mad Men dudes never used its regular name. They called it: the Stoli. So that’s what I did to. I, the cool guy. The connaisseur of the Stoli.
And I must say, it didn’t disappoint.
Stolichnaya was very smooth and it tasted like one word: quality (9/10). It did a good job leaving that nice warm feeling in the stomach (9/10). I liked the classy old school bottle design (6/10), and the price was surprisingly affordable (14€/700ml: 8/10)
Yes, this is a good vodka. Call it the Stoli. And drink it at room temperature, with a bit of bread, some pickles or a nice kielbasa! Or do it like Don’s boss: mix it with milk. Because milk is good for your health. And it’s really not about the alcohol. But about the MILK. Right.
