Jul 13th 2006 12:15AM Belvedere is a proper vodka and I often enjoy it straight out of the fridge in hollowed out, frozen, limes. For cocktails I always choose Stolichnaya. However nothing beats my grandfathers own vodka. He distills his near the finish boarder. At a get together with me mates I had the pleasure of tasting one distilled in the Balkan mountains by a relative of the host. It was fruity; but not overpowering, to the taste with a nice citrus finish. But I must digress, Stolichnaya will do for all occasions.
