[LCBO] Crystal Head Vodka Onyx + FREE skull martini glasses and jigger 750 mL bottle $69.95

Crystal Head Vodka Onyx + FREE skull martini glasses and jigger

i have been waiting and watching for this to go on sale.

This is made in Newfoundland, below is a link to a bunch of promotion stuff and recipes, plus discussion of "Dan Aykroyd and John Alexander designed the iconic skull shaped bottle as a symbol of life, reflecting power and enlightenment. "

I think it became available today, unfortunately a bit late for halloween but still a very positive review for this vodka:

Thanks OP. I could be wrong, but i think the onyx vodka has a different flavor from the clear, so be aware of this as well when choosing your set. The difference is not just the accessories and skull colour.

This article from last year describes the difference:
https://www.google.ca/amp/s/www.maxim.c ... vodka/amp/

They have three different types of vodka - the original, aurora, and onyx.

“The original Head is made with Canadian corn, and has a sweet and slightly buttery character that works well in citrusy drinks. The second, Aurora, is made from wheat and plays well in savory cocktails—dirty martinis and bloody marys.”

“Onyx, the newest Crystal Head, is a vodka distilled from blue agaves, same as tequila. It’s the first vodka to do so commercially—and it’s the first vodka to taste of agave, to taste like tequila.”

Well yeah, that's one way to say high-proof tequila. By law (possibly American law) tequila can't come from a place that isn't Mexico or come off the still above a certain percentage, where vodka generally comes off at 95 or 96% azeotrope that has limited to no real flavor. Interesting.
