Delicate nuances vs. furniture polish
Lileks on the various varieties of vodka:
There is a difference between vodka brands. The cheap stuff is all varnish remover, as far as I'm concerned, but in the upper end, the rarified realm where the bottles look like something hand-blown to hold a relic of a saint, the distinctions are quite subtle. I'm a Belvedere man, myself. It's a lovely marriage of velvet and freon.
Can't wait until the Rev. Mr. Green gets hold of this.
