tastes better than Smirnoff ice, sociable drink

Not for those who like their drinks sweet!

I’ve always drunk Smirnoff ice occasionally but I find it quite sickly after a while but a friend told me Smirnoff Black Ice was more refreshing so I decided to try that instead. The bottle is black and grey and contains 275ml of the drink. The typical Smirnoff logo is written across the bottle...

“Thin Ice”

Not as tooth curlingly sweet as many alcopops

Not anything special at all

The one problem with having a party is what gets left behind. I don’t mean the people who you find sleeping on your sofa the following morning, but what you find in your fridge when everyone has left. More and more often these days, these tend to be pre-mixed drinks, or alcopops. This can be a...

“Don't tread on Black Ice.”

published 31/10/2002

Tastes good.

None really.

Smirnoff Black Ice. An easily recognisable product, to anybody who has seen a bottle of Smirnoff Ice! Smirnoff across the bottle, with their shield underneath. The label is in black and silver, and is 'better looking' than the origional red one. The drink itself is clear, unlike Smirnoff Ice...

“BLACK ICE - QUITE NICE!”

published 15/11/2003

nice, good price, refreshing

too strong for some.

Another sweet concoction aimed at the text message generation that causes them to do bizarre things after a few too many. Basically, this is the epitome of alcopops. As with large bottles of Vodka, Smirnoff red label is the bog standard £10 a litre stuff whilst the black label is the triple...

“Black is NOT the new Red”

Contains Vodka

Leaves a manky taste in the mouth

I work part-time in a pub, and we've been stocking Black Ice, as it's commonly known, for some time now, and I have to say that we still sell far more Smirnoff Red Ice than Black Ice - despite the marketing campaign. OK. Hard facts. 275ml bottle. "Citrus" (undefined) and vodka mix. Bottle is...

“The 007 of alcopops”

published 19/12/2002

An alcopop for adults

Those ads!

If James Bond were to order an alcopop - and that's a very big if; let's say, if Scaramanga put the golden gun to his head and forced him to - it would be this one. The sleek, clear bottle with the Pierre Smirnoff name embossed in capitals around the shoulders and the sober black and silver label...

“A Sharper Bite”

Gets you drunk

Sickening after a while

Well tried these a few weeks ago just to see what they were like. I am a huge fan of Smirnoff Ice so as this is from the same suppliers (well its nearly identical - lol) I knew I had to give it a go. I did have it at home as friends had brought it up for me to try but to be honest I am not a very...

“pierre smirnoff - all hail”

published 29/12/2003

popular drink, fashionable

nice...just nice

'refreshing', 'blend', 'crisp', 'clean'; yep, Smirnoff Black Ice is exactly what the label says it is - and more. While I must say there are nicer drinks and those Smirnoff Black Ice public drinkers will agree, it is one of the only drinks to be seen with on a Friday night - forget your Reef, the...

“I'VE JUST HAD A RUSSIAN !!!”

published 26/01/2004

Mmm tasty, available in most places

Makes your mouth go like a carpet !

Having had a bit of a pants day at work I decided to buy some alcohol from my local Spar. Hmm, now I usually opt for lager but today something else caught my eye (apart from the eye candy behind the counter !). Amongst all the other bottles and cans of alcoholic drinks in the cooler was Smirnoff...

refreshing, cheap

stronger than you think sickly after a while

At first taste I wasn't sure about this! It tasted kind of citrus flavoured and a bit sweet, but also sour. Hmm! Sweet and sour? Well, not exactly. I then decided that the taste might be improved by chilling the bottle and pouring the contents over ice. Yes, it was markedly improved. The whole...

“BE CAREFUL OF THE ICE”

A nice refreshing drink

too much gets you drunk

Alcopops first came onto our shelves around mid 90s and since then there are more and more different varieties coming on our shelves. They seem to be very popular in younger drinkers but thats not to say us older drinkers can't have any lol. I am going to review Smirnoff Black Ice. Smirnoff is...

“Whats the point”

published 24/02/2003

Tastes nice

Pricey, pointless

smirnoff Black Ice is just a pointless drink. It was introduced to extend the product life cycle of the original Smirnoff Ice drink and lets face it, tastes the same. The product was launched last year in a blaze of publicity. It was advertised as a mans drink to accompany the ladies original red...

“What have they done!!!!!”

Trusted Brand

They've messed it about

I first started drinking Smirnoff Ice (Red) before the black ones came out. I loved the taste and smell of them and they weren't too expensive. The only thing was that they were a bit sickly. When they brought out the black ones I was slightly dubious that they wouldn't match up to the reds...

“Black Icey Quencher.”

Refreshing with vodka

Too easy to drink!

I have always drunk Smirnoff Red Ice until I got taste a friends Black Ice. I, like most people had been put off by the cold black and silver packaging, and as they aren't usually cheap when drinking in city pubs (as much as £3.80,) I tended to stick to what I knew. The drink is clear and...

Having like Smirnoff Ice over the other drinks on the market WKD, Red Sqaure etc. It wasn't hard to convince me to try Sminoff Black Ice. I found that the taste was in fact a lot crisper and where as Sminoff Ice would sometimes make me feel sick and would be heavy on my stomach Black Ice wasn't...
