The same company also makes Smirnoff and he's had me try some of their stuff that I haven't tried before like their blueberry and it was surprisingly very good. I would put it up there in the bang for the buck level with Svedka and Finlandia.
My old standby is Belvedere, to me its just ultra smooth. I find that Ketel One and GG both have a similar rough taste that I don't enjoy.
Was recently surprised by Pearl. Was smooth enough to sip, had a nice taste and smell, something that a lot of vodkas don't have as they tend to be very neutral.
Probably the biggest bang for the buck is Tito's Handmade, at under $20 its a steal and rivals most of the premiums. 100% from corn instead of grain or potato.
