An absolute wonderful bottle for a very unpleasant vodka. This goes down very soon but has an extremely unpleasant aftertaste once you swallow it. I am sure the quality of this liquor is high but I personally feel this is the worst tasting vodka I have ever had. I bought a bottle 2 years ago and will never buy it again. I saved the actual bottle and I pour Blavod vodka in it during Halloween… It’s great to have a pitch black vodka in this skull bottle.
I am not particularly a Vodka drinker, but I found it to be smooth and with a surprising amount of flavor. My initial motivation for purchasing this was the design of the bottle, but will definitely save this for sipping, and not just to make bloody marys
The bottle I had of this was not good at any temperature or way of serving it. I wanted to like it, I really did. In the end, it tasted to me similar to what I have had coming out of a plastic bottle from the bottom shelf. I was finally able to finish the bottle after using a lot of strong mixers. The idea of it being simple and pure was very alluring and the aesthetics were great, the drink itself was a pass for me. Now I am not a vodka aficionado and maybe the things I found distasteful in it are sought after, so take what I say with a grain of salt (though I did have several friends also try it and didn't like it without prompting from me).
Marginal Vodka - great bottle.
Kraken Black Spiced Rum is wonderfully complex in its flavour profile, a light taste initially, which is unanticipated when bringing this inky black liquid to the lips, then a bit of molasses and spice, a wee burn at the back of the throat ending in a pleasant glow; also great bottle. This Rum is worth keeping on hand at all times even if you do not live in the Caribbean.
I've too enjoy the unique bottle. Great conversation piece when sitting out. My bottle is autographed by Dan. Stood in line for over an hour at the product launch in NC some years ago. Never decided that the contents are worth the price, ,as I do tend to lean towards potato based ones. Just know it is a cut above most shelf brands.
