    I suspect that the Russians are drinking it all, drowning their sorrows.

    Yep, judging on their economy they'll be a lot of depressed Russians :/

    Anyway. In the traditional 'vodka countries' aren't trends changing? Young people are drinking more beer?

    That doesn't really make sense as a lot of drinks taste completely different mixed (And often taste better).

    in terms of whiskey (spelt whisky for those Scotch snobs lol) rum and cognac you can't beat an good quality drink on its own.

    When I mix I want to mix great ingredients together. Preferably not to drown own ****ty tasting liquor.

    Oh yeah of course, stuff on its own is great too. I though you meant you don't try anything mixed on the basis of how it tastes neat. Which didn't make sense to me

    Have you never watched a Smirnoff advert? And less of the racism.

    Minimum pricing.

    This only really affects the bottom end of the market tbh. A standard bottle of vodka can cost no less than £8.89 under the minimum pricing regime.

    It smells like a woman's nail varnish remover, I have no clue why people drink that crap.
    Your sense of smell is a bit broken if you can't distinguish between acetone and ethanol.

    Bottle of Smirnoff is about £12. God I love that stuff -drink it neat.

    Smirnoff really is the pits... try some nicer, more expensive stuff and you'll soon see the error of your ways.

    Paint stripper and nail polish remover are the same thing.

    Russian Standard pretty **** and overpriced. If you have something like Zubrowka it smells nice and tastes nice. Without paying through the nose.
    False. Acetone and Turpentine are completely different.

    Russian Standard is as low as I go these days. Zubrowka is nice though, I'll definitely agree.

    people on the web seem to rate it :yep: but tbh it all just tastes like watered down alcohol to me :unsure:
    I think vodka connoisseurs are just being taken in by some clever marketing.

    I've not noticed. The ****tiest vodka I'll buy is Smirnoff though and it pretty much stays the same price. Ciroc is the stuff you want. The only vodka that I've actually liked straight up.

    Why a woman's? Women and men use the same nail varnish removers.

    I'd give the more expensive stuff a try, but I can't buy it myself and so I can only have it when the oppurtunity arises.

    That depends on how much you drink. I'm not going to a club to do shots of scotch...

    Most vodka isn't even made in Russia.
    There are dozens of different kinds of vodka in any average supermarket of any Russian town.

    My father and his relative had court trial and divided the house and lands, which we got as our heritage.
    In short - we got 3/4 and he got 1/4, after that he sold it. New neighbours (in your country you call such people chavs) bought 1/4 on state material help, which they got for two their children. That's one room in the old (1950-s) typical soviet-times private house.
    They drink vodka already for the 3d week, just every day.
    And you continue to say that vodka is too expensive.
