Five Lakes Vodka

Five Lakes Vodka

I was sent this bottle of Five Lakes Vodka a couple weeks ago.  I was sent a free product to review in exchange for my honest opinion.  All views in this post are mine and I was not compensated for them in any way.

Then the flu hit our house and we've been trying to survive it ever since.  Now that I see a light at the end of the tunnel, I can actually step away and try some vodka!  Here is a photo of the bottle they sent:

When I first opened the bottle and smelled the vodka, I could already tell that it had a different aroma to it then other vodkas that I have smelled.  One thing that I think is super cool about this bottle is the slow pour plastic insert at the top of the bottle:

Yes I have seen this on bottles before, but not on the 750ml bottles.  

The only 750ml bottle that I can think of that has it is my Bacardi 151, for good reason.  

I really like the fact that this bottle has the plastic insert as it always allows you to pour your vodka smoother and pay more attention to how much of it you are actually using.

Next came the taste test.  

I took a sip of the vodka by itself and I have to say it does have it's own unique flavor.  

I am happy to report that this brand of vodka did not make me feel like I was breathing fire and/or make a horrid face after I swallowed it.  It went down pretty smooth.  I then mixed it up in a vodka cran and am enjoying that right now.

All in all, I would say that this is a good vodka.  With its unique flavor, it is definitely worth a try!  Thank You to Olga for sending me this bottle of vodka to try and enjoy!
