    Stoli is the old standby vodka and probably the one that most other vodkas are judged against for taste and cost. As such, it's ok as a medium shelf vodka for the combination of taste and cost.

    It is critical to distinguish the Stoli produced for the Russian market and then exported illegally and the Stoli that is sold in the USA. The Stoli from Russia is shit vodka with СПИ on the label in Cyrillic. The label with SPI in English letters is produced by a different company that uses Russian grain that is distilled in Russia and exported to the USA through the former Soviet Republic of Latvia. In some countries like Dubai and parts of the third world (especially countries with good ties to Russian illegal exporters), they import that cheap crap from the Russian market. But the product sold in the US and Europe from SPI is the real thing and is quite good. This is the same company that produced it in the Soviet times and is the only real Stoli.

    Other than wine, the Cape Cod, Cape Codder - or as I like to call it Vodka and cranberry juice - is my favorite drink. When it comes to Vodka brands I admit a lack of discernment - unless they're mixed with something they all pretty much smell as though they are meant to remove barnacles from the bottom of a boat. I like Stolichnaya because it does the job and by gosh it's just a cool sounding name.

    I lived in Dubai for 5 years, drank a lot of Stoli, why because it is the cheapest bottom shelf vodka from Russia. $5.72 for a 750ml bottle, this stuff is way overpriced here in the USA. Not worth drinking at the $28 a bottle at the local liquor store. Try Stravinsky, much better and you can get a 1.75 for a lot less.

    a good vodka shouldn't have any noticeable flavor...well, Stoli has a definite, unpleasant aftertaste.

    It's a ok Vodka with some burn to it. Does not mix very well either. This is a average vodka but by no means a real good Russian Vodka. Save your money because this stuff is way overpriced compared to Vodkas that are better in taste, like Burnetts vodka, Sobieski, and a bunch others that cost less and are better overall.

    At one time the best vodka you could get in the U.S. but not anymore. With the arrival of many other imported vodkas and boutique distillers like Pearl and Tito's in North America that is no longer the case. If you want a decent Russian vodka at a bargain price try Black Sea.

    Stoli has always been one of my fav's....way better than Grey Goose

    Stoli is a decent vodka but I prefer it mixed with something -- grapefruit juice, maybe, or tomato juice. I'd use a different vodka for drinks like Gibsons and Martinis. Yes, it's the perfect morning vodka.

    Expensive but worth the money. Goes down smooth, crisp taste and you don't end up hating life the next day.

    I like Stolichnaya or "Stoli." While not as pure as Grey Goose, it is relatively smooth. For this reason, it is popular in "Stoli Dolis"--which are pineapples (I guess the "Doli" comes from "Dole" tropical produce) soaked in the vodka overnight. It also comes in a variety of flavors. It is a good alternative to Absolut if you're looking for a slightly cheaper option.

    I agree it's over priced, but it is pretty good. Like everything else, it's a matter or individual taste. C'mon, some people actually like Smirnoff more than Stoli. Go figure.

    Stolichnaya is very good but has become far too expensive. They offer an extensive variety of flavors, some of which are ordinary and others great. I have to admit, I buy Burnett's since the last Stoli price increase.

    These guys giving it a low rating, I cannot understand it. I drink this straight from the freezer, neat, all the time. And love it. Highly reccomended.

    I bought it back when it really was a bargain. O.K. with a little more character than many others but now overpriced. I bet the Russians make this for under $5 per gallon.

    Definitely not worth the price tag.  I tried it straight at room temperature, and straight cold (bottle was in the freezer).  It had a nasty taste to it that reminded me of Smirnoff.  With ice it wasn't good, and even mixed it wasn't that appealing.  Save your money.

    This is awesome vodka. I've been drinking it since I was a lad. It's much less expensive and far smoother than some of the big names. Makes a great espresso martini or any martini for that matter.

    Was given a 92 rating by the Beverage Tasting Institute in Nov. 2006, and was described thusly: "Cotton candy and mineral aromas follow through to a smooth supple medium body with sweet cream, powdered sugar, and talc flavors. Finishes with a sweet white pepper fade. Classic Russian style with a good cutting character."

    Do not understand all thess excellent reviews at all. Clearly has a particular aftertaste, and certain harshness going down. Much worse than Elit, no comparison here. Really awful in comparison to REAL super premiums, like VanGogh, Blue Ice, and MANY others. Not as smooth, or neutral as Chopin, Ketel 1, Belvedere or Tito's. Too many vodkas are clearly a better choice. Stay away if UR looking for purity of Pearl, etc.

    What a great Vodka! I've been drinking Vodka for over 20 years and dirty martini's for about 5 and nothing is smoother than Stoli. I constantly try new Vodka's out but I always come back to Stoli. You can can serve Stoli to anyone without fear. It simply the best. Hats off to Stoli for a great Vodka at a ridiculously low price to boot!

    Hmm. I would give Stoli a solid 4 star rating when compared to other standard Vodkas in it's class like Schmirnoff and Skyy. It burns less than S-noff and tastes better than Skyy. When bought at Costco it becomes a bargain at 25 dollars a handle (1.75 L). However, overall, it's still not very good. My standard for 4 stars would be could you drink a Dry Martini with the vodka. And Stoli doesn't cut it. Keep it in the freezer and you will be fine.

    better than what?

  • by


    Sun May 28 2006

    Stolichnaya is a decent cheap vodka but is surely nothing to brag about. It is not especially smooth or good in taste, and additionally it does not mix very well either. I really want to try the Elit but cant get up the nerve to spend 50 dollars on fifth of this

    Once priced as a premium vodka, Stoli is now an incredible bargain with the influx of $25+ bottles in the market. Minimal burn (3/4) with subtle flavorings, unlike today's premiums which push the envelope with taste and character that are redefining vodka itself. A trusty, affordable standby that deserves a place on every top shelf.

    Not bad. A bit overrated though.

    This is a premium vodka made in Russia where vodka was first made. It's different from others because it is filtered throught birch charcoal and quartz, this make it very pure and gives the vodka a distinctive taste. This is a quality vodka for the fact that I can drink this straight from the freezer, I can't do this with with other vodkas like Smirnoff or Absolut. Lower quality vodkas can only be mixed and they also have a chance of causing a hangover the next day. Stoli is crystal clear with a clean finish, good flavor and finish when drank straight and also good for mixing. Sure it doesn't have a cool looking bottle and multi million dollar ads but it's what inside that counts.
