one of the best tasting vodkas in the mid price bracket

Advantages: great value for money and should be more expensive for the price
Disadvantages: none really
Stolichnaya (or stoli) is a vodka that has a mid range price, but a premium taste.
it is one of the vodka's I call 'pure vodka's, where rather than having it's own distinctive taste like Russian Standard (pepper) or Zubrowka (herby/nutty taste) the mark of quality is a total lack of taste- pretty weird paying a premium for even less taste, but if you're used the the horrible aftertaste and burn of cheap vodka then you'll be surprised at how easy it is to drink stoli. Drink it neat and cold and savour the lack of flavour.
If you want to mix it then there are cheaper vodkas to put with some coke, but if you do mix it you will notice the fact your coke tastes as pure and clean as if it had no alcohol in it at all- if you buy it in a bar you might think you'd been ripped off.
The bottle looks great, the gold cap gives a premium feel- all in all a fantastic vodka if you can stretch your budget a little.
Summary: a premium vodka for a mid range price
