For anyone who enjoys a good drink every now and again, I'm sure you're all aware that a good drink can cost quite the pretty penny. And, if you're willing to go for the "cheap stuff", the quality tends to suffer. You know what I'm talking about. That 5th of quality liquor is probably going to cost you $20 or more... WAY more. Exlusiv however is both quality and affordable. You're looking at spending about $10 for a bottle of their Exlusiv Vodka.
Now, I'm not a big vodka drinker, mainly because I can't really afford it and the cheap stuff is definitely cheap. That nasty taste of poor quality vodka is just too much for me to want to handle. So, with the promise of great quality, and affordability, I could not wait to try out Exlusiv Vodka. With that being said, Exlusiv's vodka (in my humble opinion) is definitely a winner. The taste is smooth and doesn't have that weird strong aftertaste. The bottle of Exlusiv I received didn't last very long needless to say. Many times I have to over-mix a drink if the taste of the alcohol is awful. You know... 1 part booze to 10 parts something else. Not this time! This could have even been consumed on its own.
"From the gently rolling wheat fields of Moldova, near the shores of the Black Sea, comes an exciting new vodka steeped in Russian tradition begun centuries ago. A spirit so exclusive in taste we had to name it Exclusiv. Exclusiv evokes images of icy mountain peaks and crystal clear streams. It brings to mind expressions like clean, fresh and crisp. The best and truest description we can offer is… Perfect." ~ Exclusiv
Exlusiv has also won numerous awards, including the gold medal award in 2010 from the Beverage Tasting Institute, the Double Gold Award in 2012 from the San Francisco World Spirits Competition, and named the "2011 Best Value Vodka $10 and Under".
Exlusiv also sent a bottle of their new Exlusiv Rose Moscato. If you read my other wine review you'll remember that I have a great sweet wine, and even more a great moscato. The Exlusiv Rose Moscato is a gorgeous pink/light red color. (Hey - a good color matters regardless of how quickly it is consumed.) It looks lighter on their website than it does in person. This particular moscato is a great sweet, fruity blend of flavors. It's slightly more bubbly than I usually prefer, but if you're going for a sparkling beverage, this is a good one to try. Make sure it is CHILLED though. It definitely gets better when refrigerated.
This is also another great value. Admittedly I don't usually spend more than $6 for a bottle of wine, but even Exclusiv's Rose Moscato is only priced at $9.99, which is definitely an affordable price.
"Sparkling and sweet, Rose Moscato by Exclusiv is refreshing with a light, all-natural taste. Designed to enjoy with good food and good company, Rose Moscato brings forth an ancient Moldovan tradition of good eating, good drinking, good health, and happiness. Rose Moscato wine is cultivated from the Muscat grape, the only grape to produce wine with the same sweet aroma as the grape itself. The Muscat grape gives Rose Moscato wine a sweet and rich aroma of dried fruits, raisins and oranges." ~ Exclusiv
Unfortunately Exlusiv Rose Moscato is only available in select states as of right now, but they'll be branching out more in the near future.
Overall, Exclusiv products are a really great value for the price. $10 per bottle of their wine or vodka is a steal!
