Initial Impression: "Yup -- that's vodka."
Flavor Notes: "I'm getting 'pennies', but it may just be the copper cap that's throwing me off. And the Lucida Calligraphy bold italic."
Deep thoughts: "The creator of this stuff is named 'Tito Beveridge' -- mind officially blown."

Dripping Springs (technically not in Austin, but close enough)
Initial Impression: "Ooooo, delicate and beautiful, like morning rain -- or an Enya song."
Flavor Notes: "It's soooper light, I mean, the water in Egypt is harder to drink than this vodka."
Deep thoughts: "Did you know the Russian word for 'vodka' is... 'vodka'????'"
