Get Platinum or Imperial, tastes much better.

It's sweet, 6x distilled, American (go merrica!), and $13 for 1.75l. Supposedly distilled at the same place that distills Tito's

Smirnoff is deadly for hangovers

Ciroc is pretty clean as is Belevedere

Kettel One is a fav too, don't mind Grey Goose.

All on the rocks with ice and lime.

@Dude3737- Also got to give a shout out to Tito's vodka. Great stuff for the price. Pot stilled 6x.

@Cr33pin- You are correct on the Pinnacle Whipped vodka. Fine for me as an after dinner drink, but girls love it. Mixes well with OJ also. Got a bottle in my slut kit right now.

RE: The Vodka Thread
I am pretty spoiled when it comes to Vodka. My dad works in Siberia and brings a bottle home every three months. Can't remember any of the names though.

My favorite vodkas following the Russian stuff in order:

Deep Eddy Sweet Tea Vodka
Tito's
Ketel One

RE: The Vodka Thread
Fusel oils and congeners are what you're avoiding in multiple distillations.

According to The Penguin Book of Spirits and Liqueurs, "[Vodka's] low level of fusel oils and congeners — impurities that flavour spirits but that can contribute to the after-effects of heavy consumption — led to its being considered among the 'safer' spirits, though not in terms of its powers of intoxication, which, depending on strength, may be considerable."

Tito's is good. No burn, no hangover.

It's the vodka version of El Tesoro tequila. Smooth, no burn.

RE: The Vodka Thread
Tito's six times distilled from Texas -- mid priced in Canada -- in between Smirnoff/absolut and grey goose/belvedere at $35 for 750ml..
Grey Goose is the real popular among the 18-25 in the general Toronto area but I prefer to mix it up and try new stuff..
Absolut Elyx was good, Belvedere is a good substitute for Goose if that's all you're used to.. Nice bottle and on par with Goose going down.

Slava in a triangular bottle with a dark blue label, that was another good mid priced vodka but I've only ever seen it once downtown Toronto in a random LCBO(private alcohol sales store)

Didn't read the whole thread - good to see other people know what's good! (Titos/Slava)

Has anyone tried these? A worker at the liquor store said V5 is the best bang for your buck, but Northern Peak is alright.

My favorite vodka is Tito's.

I fuck with Ciroc too because it's made from grapes.

RE: The Vodka Thread
My drink of choice is a glass of Goose on the rocks. Not a fan of mixers. Can anyone recommend me a brand of Vodka that's of comparable quality to Goose but not as widely known?

This vodka is literally one of the most popular within Russia due to its cheap prices and noticeably good taste. I loved it when I tried it, and 1L was only around 9$.

Sadly I think they only sell it in Russia. It was top shelf and there were two left in an isle stocked with vodka in the Prisma, so I assume it's good.

Anyone tried Beluga Vodka?

This bartender was pitching me on it. $24 for a cocktail.

I declined.

Got a shaken Sobieski on the rocks. There was such little bite of alcohol that I spent the rest of the night giving dirty looks to the chick bartender. Still can't figure out if I got an ultra smooth drink or if I got a bunch of mixed swill...
