Crystal head vodka is really tasty, and surprisingly, it does not hit me as hard as say Ciroc

Obviously this is about liquor, but close enough. Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have a French rosé worth trying. Given their situation it may not last

Too bad Aykroyd is an asshole who is suing a mom and pop hot sauce company because they also bottle their product in a skull-shaped vessel.

Michael J. Kox?

Funny, in the last thread all the Fark vodakkers reported that Akroyd's vodka tasted like diamond quartz filtered ass.

No suing involved. They asked chancer hubbie and wife to stop using the skull head, which they already knew resembled Ackroyd's, to the point of asking Fat Dan to partner up.

I like your story better tho.

All vodka tastes pretty much the same, with one exception. Double blind test it if you don't believe me(funny how everyone that disagrees with me will never ever do this)

So does most bourbon. You can't tell Old Crow from Blanton's in the dark and anyone telling you differently is selling you something or a fool.

that said, the skull bottle is ample reason to buy the vodka, at least once(I broke my first one)

Your "one exception" is apparently willfully obscured.

Sammy Hagar used to make a pretty fine tequila, but I think he's out of that business.

Any commercial vodka in a nice bottle passes

Maybe Akroyd can sue for better results.

If you typed "vodka" in this thread...
...instead of VODAK
You need re-education.

I have done it with both vodka and bourbon, and I can tell the difference.  The real test to pull on someone would be to claim a double blind taste test between 2 bourbons, but only use 1 to see if there is a difference.

For Farkers you have a pretty undeveloped taste for alcohol...

I met an 'expert' at a trade show who sampled some of my whiskey (why yes I own a distillery) and he could tell how quickly we added the water to proof it from barrel strength to bottle.  He recommended we slowly add the water over 24 hours vs. the two hours we currently do.  Yes, you can taste the difference!

That said, I like Clooneys Tequila but it kills me to watch people throw money at celebrity endorsed factory chemicals rather than embrace the more than 1000 craft distilleries across the U.S.

1. Could the author be any more bitter? The first half of that article was nothing but whining about rich people getting richer.
2. If you can't tell the difference between...say...Arrow or Mohawk vodak and something like Absolut or Smirnoff then your tongue is dead. Same goes for El Toro or Two Fingers and Jose Cuervo or Patron.

This. I've had all sorts of Vodak, from super-pricy to no joke, Somerville bathtub vodak (which makes varnish remover seem posh). Crystal head is quite tasty. Also my go-to for making Atomic Screwdrivers.

Crystal Skull has two things going for it, the bottle is pretty bad-ass and f*cking Dan Aykroyd who, if you ignore Nothing But Trouble, has never failed to deliver.

That said I prefer some cheaper vodkas such as Reyka or Svedka.

Being a vodka snob is like being a white paint aficionado.

Benjamin Moore Aura in Eggshell is the best but a 2015 Regal Select in Pearl is a best buy vintage.

Due to health issues I should not drink, and don't very often. But when I do... Tito's Vodak.

To me, Tito's is the backyard burger of vodaks.  Yes you could get a cheaper takeout burger that tastes comparatively like ass, or you could spemd 5x more for some artisanal work that - while tasty - is not really a burger anymore. Maybe that's nice once in a while, but - when it comes down to it - I want the backyard burger.

My go to for vodak, $14 at Costco.  In fact, most spirits I get are Kirkland and they are all just fine once you add mixers.  Usually they are about $10 cheaper than the brand names.

MJK is a very, very minor celebrity. If at all, outside the rabid fanbase with the eternal patience.

I like what I'm used to. I can tell if another one is different. Different is bad.

This explains most brand loyalty.
