Blavod?

Rings a bell. It was fine stuff. Thought I'd bought some at the airport once but when I got it home it didn't taste too good. Maybe it was bad all along!

I just brought back some Apsinthion :)

Haven't had the chance to open it yet though. Waiting for the right night.

I'm sure you have plenty of liquor stores with PL vodka. Look for Wyborowa. Chopin is also good, but pricy.

What's the difference, FISZ, between this and the regular one, except the cool look?
My favourite is Luksusowa. Today I took all my alcoholic Christmas gifts back to the liquor store and since I didn't have any receipts I could only exchange for something else. The total credit was $92.50 (Canadian) so I grabbed three 1.14l bottles of Luksusowa. Beats all those wines and liqueurs people gave me for Christmas. LOL

It's made in smaller batches...kinda like a single barrel whisky, it's just better.

here's some info: polandforall.com/polish-wyborowa-vodka.html

Very interesting. I checked the cabinet and haven't opened the 2nd one bought in the US. There's still some left from PL, so I'll wait until that gets lower and try the two together then. That Bison grass looks like useful stuff with a lot of good flavors--the wiki said it's even used in pipe tobacco.

[Refer to Posts 182-183]

Well, we just tried the US version and the Polish version (a few sips of each straight). There's a definite difference. If you had it with apple juice you probably wouldn't know the difference.

The Polish version has a better flavor and is much smoother. It's worth noting that the Polish version has medals on the label that the American imported version doesn't. According to that wiki (quoted in an earlier post) there something in the bison grass that isn't allowed in the U.S. so it's eliminated and they use some flavoring to try and make up for the difference. The U.S. version (Chicago mentioned on label) is also greener in color.

That's a big no no. I don't like it with apple. maybe just a little Zuberek, but that's all. Maybe your taste buds are better :) I couldn't tell the difference. Even if they did neutralize the grass..I think that the flavors from the grass would still remain. Who really knows....Coke and RC tastes the same to me :)

I think PL wine will become more popular. I hear that there thy're growing more grapes than usual.

We were surprised - didn't really expect much of a difference if any. Of course (for anyone) another factor is a matter of how much one consumes! :)

Hmmm.... it's the weekend now - might have to revisit this experiment. :)

And? Did you come up with the same result?

Yes indeed. I have to admit, after comparing the two, the US version is not pleasant to have--reminds me of cologne by comparison. It's hard to take now.

In an off topic comment, I did have some Kilbeggan Irish whiskey recently (bought in advance of St. Patrick's day--it was on sale and hadn't tried it). It was pretty good, worth it for the good price, but isn't considered one of the best. It will be held in stasis until March 17! :)

I agree with that the US version was unpleasant, I'd drink something else.

That's because it's for tourists and people who don't know any better.

Finlandia - the vodka of choice for Poles !

You can make wisniowka homemade very easily....
All you need is 9% alcohol, sour cherries and sugar!!

Soak the cherries in alcohol for a couple of weeks, remove alcohol and put to one side pour sugar onto cherries to extract as much juice as possible.

Pour off juice and mix with original alcohol...

This is a very easy way to make wisniowka!

I vaguely remember drinking "bimba" (is that right?) at a wedding.
WOW.
I got given a bottle to bring (smuggle) back to the Uk. I give it to unsepecting English people who dont understand vodka.
Also useful for stripping down paintwork!

Still prefer Finlandia though
