Is the hype real?

Some girls I know that is all they drink.

Ice cold shot is pretty good.

Like Bose gear, it's not bad, but it's marketed very well.

I prefer potato vodka.

I've only had it a few times. It's not bad. I buy Svedka because I'm a cheapass.

Waste of money. In blind taste tests vodka experts cant tell the difference between Smirnoff* level vodkas and the pricey brands. You get below Smirnoff in the price department and you can get some harsh vodkas.

*Needs to be in a glass bottle. Plastic is a no go unless you are making mixers.

Hype or not, I enjoy it.

Have what's left of a bottle sitting in the freezer now.

No, it is consistently beaten in taste tests by Svedka which costs about what Smirnoff does.

Way better.

Pretty much this. If you are talking other types of alcohol brand matters but I can't really tell the difference between the higher end vodkas. The cheap shit probably sucks I don't know never tried it.

I rotate between stoli, titos, belvedere, absolut, grey goose, etc and quite frankly can't tell the difference between any of them.

Get a bottle of Tito's.
Link Posted: 1/17/2015 5:53:48 PM EST
It is very good, bit also over hyped and over priced

FWIW. Kirkland Brand Vodka (Costco) is made in the same distillery, and about half the price. Is it the same? I don't know, it sure tastes like it to me. You can decide for your self.

The entire brand is fake.

It was created from day one to be an "ultra premium" spirit that relies on marketing and image to sell.

Part of that image is a hefty price tag. It costs more, so it must be better. It doesn't hurt that the people that it's marketed to don't know shit about booze.

You sir are correct. Other alcohols require some level of craftsmanship to make. All you need for Vodka is enough money to have a good chemical engineer to build and run a still for you.

If it ain't Tito's....it ain't all that.

Am I before someone suggests that nasty Tito's crap?

For a similar price I prefer Chopin which is potato based. I haven't drank vodka in a few years though since graduating to whiskey, so to speak.
Link Posted: 1/17/2015 5:57:48 PM EST
Vodka is vodka. Do a blind taste test with all the high end brands and Smirnoff and see which one you chose. Try it again a week later and see if the results are the same.

My favorite for vodka martinis, since it actually has flavor, but for other drinks a smoother cleaner vodka even if cheaper is usually better.

I used to travel a lot for business with a guy who'd have a shot of grey goose and a sleeping pill every night to get to sleep in the hotel.

Didn't seem like a good combination, IMO.

Was an interesting Myth Busters test.
They ran cheap vodka through a Britta filter, 1-5 times, and compared it against a 'top shelf' label.
One of the testers was an expert, he was 100% correct in his ID of top shelf, how many times each cheap brand was filtered, etc.
*ETA* Show hosts could not really tell the difference. Jamie was 2 for 5, IIRC.

Better the vodka, the less the hangover, generally.

I'm sorry but you guys saying there's no difference in taste between Smirnoff, Grey Goose, Belvedere, etc, are full of shit.

Mixed, yeah most vodka's taste very similar. Straight up, there are definite differences. Fuckin' heathens

Sobieski is good cheap vodka. A few years ago I had a blind taste test at a party and it won over like 6 high end vodkas .

Psychology can have a huge impact on taste. Have someone set up a blind taste test for you. Let me know how it works out.

Chicks dig it because it's smooth, tasteless, and expensive. They can drink without making not-cool faces.

I prefer potato vodka, or something with a taste.

As with any strong alcohol.
Should be sipped and savored.
Is fun to watch a person chug a shot, grimace, and try to keep it down.

Ignoring the stupid skull bottle, crystal head is very smooth and crisp. I wish they would put it in a normal bottle and cut the price by a third. Titos is pretty good, but I prefer belvedere or crystal head...however, titos is great for the price.

Can't compare to a nice bottle of Country Club . I'm not really a vodka guy, usually Smiroff is about as fancy as I get. I do like Grey Goose thou.

Grey goose is good but I drink Kettle One its a bit cheaper and just as smooth.
