Высота Люкс – Vysota Luxe vodka. This stuff has “deluxe” in its name. Wow.
Vysota Luxe vodka is a quality vodka, but not a deluxe vodka
I got this at the Russian store around the corner. It came naturally: I just pointed at the bottle on the shelf and bought it. There was no use asking the owners if it was any good. They wouldn’t know, because they apparently only liked cognac. Maybe I should try cognac too?
Yes, maybe. Some day. But first I needed more vodka!
So I carried the bottle home and opened it with a few friends. I didn’t know what to expect. With “deluxe” in the name, it could have been anything really. And it was decent.
It felt smooth (7/10). That’s about all I can say about it, because there was no significant good or bad aroma in the aftertaste (6/10). That makes it still a good vodka. Good, not great. The bottle looked okay to me (5/10), and the pricing was awesome (10€/700ml: 9/10).
I wouldn’t have called this Vysota Luxe, instead I would have dropped the “luxe”. It’s a decent vodka. It’s nothing fancy, but it’s not bad either. Isn’t that enough?
