A few weeks ago, I ordered a bottle of Crystal Head Vodka from Wally's Wines.
The bottle scores a 10 of 10 for coolness.
The vodka scores a mere 9 of 10, if you were to be rating the taste of rubbing alcohol, as opposed to the taste of supposedly high-end vodka. Yuck. A strong foretaste of isopropyl followed by grimaces, groans, and vodka snobs laughing at me as they wait their turn to make the same faces.
Buy it for the bottle and don't ever open it.
Or open it, dump it out and fill it with Ketel One. An informal side-by-side comparison rates the KO much higher than Akroyd's personal brand.
