Favourite vodka? - Page 2

post #16 of 86
I prefer GG mainly because it is the most consistent, moreso than Belvedere IMO. I have a bottle of Hanger One in the freeze, which I got as a gift, but I haven't tried it yet.

excellent vodka, this is now my new choice over CG, Belv and so forth. Do not get me wrong I would still drink the others, but i find Ciroc to be much smoother.

I like Vox, very smooth, I keep a bottle in my freezer.

I like Grey Goose, though Costco's house brand is apparently the same thing at half the price. I can't tell the difference. So I drink Costco at home and order Grey Goose when I'm out.

I just saw an advertisement for a brand I had not heard of, though I am entirely familar with its namesake:

Has anyone tried this?

Chopin for shots, Ketel 1 for drinks. Both smooth, Chopin packs a little more of a distinctive punch (plus I have a thing for potato vodkas) and the aftertaste is not quite as lingering.
If I'm making mixed drinks for a lot of people, I usually buy some Vikingfjord. An inexpensive potato vodka (that, honestly, most of the people I'm serving couldn't tell from Chopin) that doesn't TASTE like it's cheap. If you're worried about appearances, save your empty bottles of Chopin and funnel the stuff over. Chopin bottles are gorgeous and your guests will never know; it's going in a tall glass with juice and ice and whatnot anyway...

Homemade Zubrowka that I get from some of my friends in Poland. Otherwise, if I'm buying vodka I typically just get Smirnoff Black Label and spend the saved money on other things like nice Gin. Anyone ever have szarlotka (apple pie) mix drinks?!

I also wonder, GG, Belvedere and Chopin all share remarkably similar packaging.... I wonder if they are at all connected.

Belvedere and Chopin are owned by the same company. Personally I prefer Belvedere; although Goose and Chopin are good as well. For cheaper mixing vodka, Stoli and Sky are just fine.

I drink my vodka on the rocks with a lime. Belvedere, hands down. I tried Chopin, but I personally didn't like the taste as much, but I recognize it is a great potato vodka.

Grey Goose might be of higher quality than Smirnoff, Absolut and the like, but it taste like rubbing alcohol taken straight. Take it from the freezer, then you have thick rubbing alcohol. GG is fine if you mix it with soda.

Vodka like "Level 1" appear to be marketing hype like Vox water. Level 1, like GG, taste like rubbing alcohol.

Zyr is by far my favorite. Much more smooth than GG, chopin, Bell, Pravada, or anything else I have tried

Hangar One is the nicest straight-sipping vodka I've ever tasted, it's got a distinctive taste but not as overpowering as Grey Goose (which I find syruppy when unmixed).

Stoli's my usual fallback - cheap and excellent quality. Was surprised to find when I moved over here it's considered a cheap/generic brand, in the UK it's a premium drink.

Zytnia- Polish Rye Vodka.Wyborowa is pretty good too (potato vodka).
Grey Goose is overmarketed shit, BTW.
