    Vodka, what's your pick?

    Vodka still is my latest bright idea.


    What's your poison, and/or price limit?


    Wanting to see if there's any agreement on the supposed flavor deference.

    Svedka for home. I don't buy anything else because I always mix. If I am getting a greyhound or vodka martini I will go Belvedere.

    Svedka. Don't see the point in spending dumb money on a liquor that is supposed to taste and smell like nothing.

    Bourbon/Whiskey/Scotch on the other hand.

    29.99 for a handle of stoli. Classic, smooth, flavorless (I drink Hendricks gin if I'd like flavor). I don't quite understand the flavors that go into the goose, like it's trying to be more like gin or something. The Ruskies know what's up. Then again, taste couldn't be more subjective. Ketel is my second choice, but it kinda just tastes like someone added water to it.

    I'll have to try some of these other ones, Monopolowa or whatever.

    Svedka or Monopolowa for basic mixing at home. For fancy stuff Cooranbong is pretty legit.

    Cheaper Polish Vodkas are good: Monopolowa, Luksusowa. If you can get your hands on Zubrovka (I think the FDA nixed an extract that is in the bison grass), its great but an acquired taste. Slightly more expensive is Pravda, but another good Polish.

    Finlandia and Svedka are great at the price.

    I like the bite of Ketel One if I am drinking neat (not an opinion people often share with me).

    And finally, my all time, middle of the road go-to: Chopin.

    I'll let this go awhile, and then post the flavor chart I've got. It has most of the fancy ones, and not many of the rot gut USA ones.

    Normally Stoli, but if you haven't tried it, check out Tito's ... good stuff.

    If your a hipster in this town, you only drink this. Can't speak for it's quality based on others. It is kind of cool to go in and see where it's made and grab a bottle from the lounge after a quick tour of the distillery. Not a vodka drinker so I just grab them for gifts.

    Dolgoruki, Kettle One or Tito's are my martini vodkas. Mostly for the wife though, I prefer a gin martini. Isn't the point of vodka to get girls drunk or for highschool kids that can't yet drink beer or whiskey?

    Kirkland Signature Vodka is pretty impressive for the price (rumor has it that it's relabeled Grey Goose but I'm not sure I believe it). On the high end, Youri Dolgoruki takes it.

    Polish bison vodka is good. If flavored vodka is your thing, I've had some other Polish vodka with a subtle honey flavoring that was really good. Honey flavor was subtle & not sweet. Can't remember the brand & searching mainly brings up krupnik which is a much sweeter liquor.

    I like 94 Karlsson Gold- which is potato-based.

    This on wins the bottle category, however:

    Silver Tree by Leopold Bros. I prefer bourbon , but my wife drinks vodka during the summer and I'll have some over ice. I find it really smooth.

    I haven't drank vodka for years, but I always like ciroc when I tried it... Used to drink Absolut or Finlandia back in college.

    Like many here I've never been a Vodka drinker, so probably not a good idea to make it, but don't want to die of old age aging whiskey.

    There is a Vodka named BONG?
    Please god, tell me it comes in a plastic bottle.
    Although a glass one with a hole properly melted into it would be sweet.
    If I ever found my 'music only' pot...
