being organic is not enough

[40%, sampled in Germany]

Tarpan vodka from Poland. Just like 360 before, this stuff is apparently organic. I found it online. It was sitting there on this website, looking at me, saying I AM ECO-FRIENDLY, so I couldn’t help but adopt it and take it home.

about the color green

Have you noticed how most things that are being marketed as organic or eco-friendly have a design that’s dominated by the color green? Why is that though? Will people soon start buying green cars? I can’t recall seeing many green vehicles on the roads, but maybe that’s about to change, as hybrid-manufacturers start painting their cars green to show that they belong to the good side.

Let’s get back to Tarpan vodka, though. The bottle is green, and it says BIO VODKA on it. Fine, but does it taste good?

Tarpan needs work

No, it doesn’t. In fact it tastes pretty harsh, and there was many a frown when me and a few friends fought our way down the bottle. There didn’t seem to be anything refined or aromatic about the aftertaste, either. It wasn’t terrible, but it wasn’t exactly good, either.

The bottle looked okayish, at least it was green. The price was good, though (14€/700ml).

I don’t know what to tell you about this one. I can’t really recommend it.
