We’ve only had one Uzbek vodka on here before, and that one was Qalampir, a pepper vodka that really wasn’t all that good. So I decided to try a few more. This one is called Stopochkin (Стопочкинъ), and it seems to be pretty rare. At least there was not much on the internet about it.
So anyway I’m listening to Joyner Lucas’ “Gucci Gang” remix (after wondering if Lil’ Pump was actually a parody account). But it’s all good now.
Stopochkin vodka means sweet fire
So about the price. Yeah, the price, the price. I’m seriously thinking about changing the way I’m rating these brands, because vodka is just too cheap all over Central Asia. Anyway, this one was like 4€ for 500ml, so it’s another 10/10.
The bottle design is okay. Again with the ground glass, just like Shohona Platinum, and again it’s nice, but just a bit uninspired. I’d give it a 7/10.
I tried this stuff while I was outside, but even then it smelled a bit too strong and too fiery, like an attack on the nose. A bad sign. The taste was okay at first. It tasted easy in the mouth, but then it started fighting back on its way down. A taste of fire (6/10).
The aftertaste was surprisingly sweet and lasting. It made for a nice hot feeling in the stomach, and it was quite aromatic. An 8/10.
