Favourite vodka?

post #1 of 86
Thread Starter 
What's your favourite vodka? I haven't tried Chopin or Vox yet. I prefer GG and Belvedere because they complement mixed drinks quite well, and I find their presence sweet and not overpowering. K1 I despise... it has an unbelieveably dinstinct flavour that takes over whatever you are doing.

Tanqueray Sterling. Call me a vodka philistine but the superpremium vodkas just taste like marketing to me.

Well, people whine about Grey Goose being a whole lot of marketing... big deal..... it's like $35. Smirnoff, which I firmly do believe (along with other brands like Stoli) is much more coarse, if not more "authentic" vodka.

I have a bottle of Grey Goose in the freezer right now. I think it's better than Belvedere. It seems like a waste to use good vodka with mixed drinks. I only do shots of Grey Goose. Well, sometimes I make what I dub "The Most Expensive Screwdriver In The World Of All Time": Grey Goose with freshly-squeezed orange and pineapple juice. The local Central Market has an on-premises juicer and sells freshly squeezed juices for $6-7 per half-gallon.

I have a bottle of Level, but I have yet to open it. Has anyone had this vodka yet?

I feel like Grey Goose is the smoothest to me, but I recently had Chopin, and it was great. However, I've taken the shot of Chopin unchilled, which means I am still slightly unsure which one is better. In my opinion, marketing, hype and everything else aside, they are very good, smooth vodkas. Some people don't like smooth, but I do. Oh, and Slate had a quite entertaining article on vodkas a while back: http://www.slate.com/id/2106004

Why do both of you prefer Chopin? I also wonder, GG, Belvedere and Chopin all share remarkably similar packaging.... I wonder if they are at all connected.

Monarch or Five Star. Nothing better than a $10 half gallon of vodka. Plus, if you are worried about the taste and hangover, try this. http://www.ohmygoditburns.com/wordpress/index.php?p=4

Chopin as well. Belvidere and Chopin are distilled by the same firm in Poland. Belvidere is distilled from grain; Chopin from Strobrawa potatoes. I doubt if they are related to Grey Goose, which is distilled in France (unless a major conglomerate owns them both). Anyway, GG always tasted medicinal to me. Used to enjoy Smirnoff Black Label, but can't find it anymore. Regards, Huntsman Edit: Anyone tried Hangar One?

Chopin... so good there's no point IMO in trying anything else.

Anyone tried Ciroc vodka, distilled from grapes?

Finlandia, but I'm biased.
