“ Brand: Liviz / Type: Vodka „
Had a little bottle of each from an online shop in a luxury hamper. The nicest vodka I have tasted. I'm no expert but this compared to a red or blue label Smirnoff is no comparison, the Diplomats all tasted cleaner and crisper. The red one was maybe a little too strong for me but I'm sure some will like that. I've not seen it in the shops though unfortunately, but I've seen bottles online for around 20 GBP, might splash out on one.
I recently received an ample 1 litre bottle of Diplomat vodka from a friend in St. Petersburg and whilst it is hard to review vodkas - here goes!
Diplomat is a Russian vodka which was initially created in 1721 as a gift for the King of Spain, I'm not sure how it is considered in Russia (to be fair..anything that isn't in a plastic bottle is classy lol) but a 70cl bottle retails for about £17 in the UK.
Sold in a bottle with a blue label and the words Diplomat across, there's a nice little emblem featuring swords and the date which the vodka was established (1721). To the bottom of the label is a list of medals for the awards it has won, many of which are recent (Grand Vodka Masters 2007 and a more random award that I've not heard of in 2008)
Diplomat is a good honest vodka and is miles better than your generic rubbish like Smirnoff. It has a smooth taste with a final kick to it. I suppose I should point out that I'm reviewing the Premium version and haven't tried Strong (50%) or Special (different refining process). I would recommend the brand, it's clean, goes down nicely and leaves you completely without a hangover (unless of course you drink other alcoholic drinks along with it as well - wine being the worst in my opinion)
