Booze: Veil Pineapple Vodka zero-stars
No published information or tasting notes available.

My husband and I recently threw a very large BBQ. When buying alcohol for our BBQs, we always buy both regular and flavored vodkas. This time, our local liquor store only had 1 bottle of Pineapple Cîroc. Instead of leaving (for a better stocked store, we (well, I) allowed the store manager to talk us into trying a “new” pineapple flavored vodka: Veil.

The manager gave us the hard sell: He compared the Veil to Cîroc: [in comparison] the manager told us that the Veil was a better-quality vodka with superior taste, smoothness and distilling. He praised Veil so much that we bought it.

Damn it.

The Pineapple Veil was opened at the BBQ but we didn’t get a chance to taste it until much later (after the BBQ). Strangely, by the end of the BBQ the Veil was still basically a full bottle. The Cîroc, on the other hand, was completely consumed.

Hubby and I learned that everyone who tried the Veil hated it. When hubby and I tasted the Veil ourselves, we totally understood why there was a full bottle left: it tastes sweet but medicinal.

Since the BBQ, hubby and I have tried everything to make this drink more palatable. We’ve tried it mixed with lemonade, with [clear] sodas, just water, and straight. Didn’t matter. No matter what we do, it still tastes like medicine.

I’ve tossed so many drinks away lately – and it bothers me greatly. I HATE wasting things (like my money and liquor).

Lesson learned. 🙁
