Here is what Wine Enthusiast said about Ikon True Russian Vodka.
Inside Scoop: As super and ultrapremium vodkas' popularity continue to score major profit-margin points for distillers, the age of $15 unflavored vodka seems like a generation ago. There are, however, a handful of really good values left. IKON and Seagram's Platinum are all well below $20 and all taste as though they are priced above it.
Rich Dobbs of the Martini Lounge has this to say about Ikon True Russian Vodka:
" The nose on this vodka was extremely appealing and I went back for a few extra sniffs. I took a swig and was very glad I did. It's not a vodka trying to be tasteless like some of the other one's out there and it's not trying to be a big grain vodka either. It has a great middle of the road feel and it did something that most other vodkas do not normally do, it made my mouth water. I was blown away at the rich flavors inside of this one and it had a big, round feel to it. "Round" is the best way I can describe it and, no, not like your mother.
You will not, ever, find a bottle of vodka that is better than Ikon for under US$20. Ever. Never. Never ever. This is a bottle that I could easily put in to a taste test with self-proclaimed vodka aficionado's alongside some of the premium vodkas and come away with a pleasing sense of self-satisfaction at calling them morons. Yet, the vodka is cheap enough to be a well vodka. Oh praise to the bar that has Ikon as the well vodka, long will it be loved."
