Is it true that there is no serious difference in quality among vodkas?
>>
>>718456980
I'm preferential to Absolut. I hate Grey Goose and Sky.
>>
>>718456980
>Is it true that there is no serious difference in quality among vodkas?
depends on the region. but the supermarket shit in western countries is solely about taste.
in east europe it is about going blind or not.
>>
>>718456980
for me it's smirnoff, the best vodka.
>>
>>718456980
Try Zubrowka. The best vodka.

That and some proper nice and smooth Ukranian vodka I had at a wedding a couple of years ago.

If you're mixing vodka with something like tonic and/or juice, then you might as well get the cheap shit. Expensive vodka only when making a martini or neat/on the rocks.

Just how many times its filtered, guess you can get a brita and filter it a bunch yourself if you want, might help hangover, maybe taste.

Stoli for mixing
Goose for shots

stoli good?
i use absolut for mixing
and smirnoff for washing my windows because that's all it's good for
goose for shots 100%

Eristoff or Absolut
>>
>>718456980
Really cheap vodka (handles for 10 bucks depending where you are) taste like shit. The better than dirt tier brands like Tito's or Russian Standard are a lot better for a little bit more money. The difference between those brands versus "expensive" vodka like grey goose or skyy are not worth the price difference. The taste is barely different.

The whole distilled X amount of times is also nonsense. I wouldn't pay attention to the "filtered 12 times" or whatever; higher doesn't always mean better.

Yes there is a serious difference.

I love stoli for mixing... primarily for making white russians

Stoli is pretty good on its own too

>>718459548
Sure. In an effort to make more with less they stop the distilling process to early meaning that they have a lot of methanol left in the vodka instead of ethanol ( the normal alcohol ). Methanol is processed into formic acid in your body and reaches the blood stream where it can make you go blind and can even lead to death.

why do i get the feeling that would be good as fuck
like those two flavors seem like they would go really really well together
>>
>>718456980
not in high end ones.
there is a noticeable difference between very cheap ones, and medium-to-high price ones when you drink them neat in room temperature - filtration does its thing.
however all differences are gone soon as you chill properly (in the freezer overnight) or just have it mixed
>>
>>718459578
I agree on crystal head. Hot fucking garbage.
>>
>>718456980
They differ a lot.
Just stay away from the really cheap shit that's made from molasses and from smirnoff or russian standard, which is just shit. You'll be ok with any of absolut/finlandia/stoli tier. Buffalo grass is an acquired taste but I hate it. Finlandia is best imo.

Ciroc is the smoothest vodka I've ever had compared to, new Amsterdam skyy grey goose etc

PROTIP: Buy a Brita(or any brand, I guess) water filter. Buy some cheap $10/gallon gutrot vodka(or any liquor really). Filter that shit a few times and it will taste just as good as top shelf.

I regularly refill old Grey Goose, Patron, etc. bottles like this and bring them to parties. No one knows the difference.

clear alcohol is for pussies.

Blanton's bourbon or Jefferson's Reserve is the shit.

There was a tragedy in Estonia where some boys got their hands on barrels of methanol thinking it was ethanol. Eventually they made it into "vodka" and started selling it underground like people do here. About 70 people died and over 100 were hospitalized.
Also, ironically it happened on september 11th, 2001
>>
Fuck all you queers , I'm getting Belvedere once I get out of work. swag bitch
>>
>>718456980
Vodka is for mixing or getting fucked up ASAP. People who get all finicky about the exact taste of ethanol and water are unbelievably pretentious. Plastic jug vodka tastes like garbage in general. Basically anything else is the same and if it isn't, a few passes through a brita pitcher will shore up any extra garbage
>>
Yeah I think Absolute or Russian Standard definitely taste noticably crisper or cleaner than Smirnoff, which in turn is better than own-brand cheapo vodka. Dunno about the more expensive ones though, maybe even better than A or RS.
>>
and btw , fuck Tito and his handmade vodka.

Vodka from texas. c'mon man

THIS. I'm in my late 20's and haven't drank cheap liquor in nearly a decade. Went to a friend's for NYE and they used Komchatka (cheap $10/gal shit) for the punch. Drank a little more than normal, but not a super excessive amount.

I had a hangover for two fucking days afterwards. Never doing cheap shit again even if its free.

Skyy for mixing Belvedere or Goose for drinking by itself. I can certainly tell the difference between a higher end vodka and your garden variety plastic jug gut rot. A good litmus test for you to use is if it is in plastic, don't drink it. This is true for other varieties of booze as well. Personally I think Belvedere has the best taste among the vodkas you have pictured and I have drank most of them several times.

Vodka filtration Mythbusters

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kO077nu2m5E

As far as value for money is concerned I would lean toward stoli, Russian standard, and skyy. All are relatively cheap comparatively to top shelf, and have an acceptable taste. Of course this is just my opinion. I would say the most 'over-rated vodka' is Grey goose. Not that I think it is bad, it's popularization and branding is more impressive than the vodka itself.

>Protip
>forget about vodka and start trying scotch
>>
>>718467711
What's your point with the mythbusters video?

All they do is confirm that filtering works. No it's not as 100% perfect as buying top shelf, you've gotta be a tasting expert to tell the difference.

Do you know how they make Skyy vodka? Azeotropic ethanol from tanker cars mixed with plain water.

High tier (for holidays, special occasions or if you're a richfag) - Absolut
Mid tier (for everyday use) - Stolichnaya
Don't but Stolichnaya vodka in any of the eastern european countries though.

I did a blind taste test with 8 friends, and no one could tell the difference between top and mid class. Less than 20% of people could tell the difference between belvvedere, absolut and smirnoff when blindfolded doing a taste test.


Seriously. next time you have a bottle of low/mid shelf and a bottle of top shelf, do a blind taste test with your friends and you will realize pretty much all Vodka tastes the same (not bottom shelf i.e. taaka). People just like to drink expensive vodka to show people they have "expensive taste". Its all the same shit at a certain point.
>>
>>718470111
those tests are often false because after u dranke 2 shots of one vodka and move to the nex one u cant tell the difference anymore with three or more a tast test is absolutly impossible
>>
>>718456980
trash vodka tastes sweeter, like they literally add sweetener to cover the harsher flavor.

More expensive vodkas have more of a "burn" but feel almost like water.

If you're mixing drinks with soda or juice there's no real difference.
If you make vodka martinis then there's a noticeable difference.
>>
>>718470815
So why dont people take 1 shot of a top shelf and then drink straight well liquor if the first shot will cover the taste?
>>
>>718464610
Niinpä!

In the UK pretty much all vodka tastes good, only stuff I'd really avoid is the budget cheap ones from aldi/lidl.

Try some different ones though they all a have different taste, I like Russian Standard.

"Vodka" is neutral spirits so distilled or so treated after distillation with charcoal or other materials, as to be without distinctive character, aroma, taste or color.

you drink ig a glas of water and than a glass of water that tasts completly different than youd see that the second water tasts like the first one if you took two shots of the first water.
if you drink the second water imidiatly after und than the first water imediatly after that one you can see an imense difference
it is kinda odd but true

for mixing it does not have much of a difference, but for drinking straight at least Russian Standard or Stoli. Grey Goose is nice, but too expensive compared to others of similar qualities.

Best vodka ive had is zelyonaya marka and its dirt cheap as well
