+1 to Belvedere
Isnt there a new-ish brand called Wodka?
Sorry for partyin'...
+1 all the Smirnoff posters. Can't tell the difference. Hate to encourage liquor stores to devote even MORE space to vodka. Would prefer they give more to Gin, Rye.. heck, anything but a spirit that strives to taste like nothing. I may spring for Tito's since I spent a decent number of years in Austin, TX. If you can taste the difference and appreciate it, more power to you. I wish I could. Old man tastebuds/olfactory perhaps.

Favorite right now is Svedka, excellent Sweetish vodka that is very very cheap! Least favorite would have to be Van Gogh.
I could probably load Tabac on a Q-tip and still get a decent lather
I have to say Dry Fly from Washington. It it super smooth but what sets it appart from others is it's texture. It is velvety and at $25.00 it is a steal.
I highly recommend SUMMUM Vodka.
France - Extremely elegant and silky. An artisan vodka from the finest wheat and spring water from Cognac. A slightly floral bouquet complements hints of lemon and baked bread on the palate.
It's ridiculously cheap (cheaper than ABSOLUT) yet it can hang with even the most expensive Vodkas on the market. Give it a try, you'll have a new favorite!
I agree with all the Smirnoff posts. On the rocks with a lemon twist (skin only!) Although, back in the day, I drank quite a bit of Stoli.
Nothing lasts forever...not even your troubles.
Tito's or Glacier if sipping. Smirnoff for mixing....Hell Smirnoff for sipping as well ;)
Seagrams, here. I dig the old school textured bottle. I think it might be cheaper than Smirnoff, too, and I don't feel sick after drinking it!!!
I second the Sobieski. It's cheaper than Smirnoff (for those going cheap) and rated higher than Svedka, among others. Also, it's the number one choice in Poland, and they know their vodkas!
Grasovka from Poland
Please dont mind my bad english, i´m still learning :-)
My favorite is Russky Standarth Platinum. I think I can pick it out in a tasting too. But if you going to mix it with different kind of fruits and things, no. But I prefer the real way ... pure. The same destillery also make the expensive, Imperia. But in Russia there are loads of good vodka. Don't forget about Ukraine with their famouse(?) Khortytsa and Nemiroff. Polish vodka ...
When I was in St Petersburg I was planning to get some small bottles to bring home and try out. I quit counting after 40 different brands and all people arguing about wish one was the best.
Ocean (Organic- made in Hawaii)
Kirkland (Costco Brand)
I only drink Vodka when I am trying to loose a few LBS.
Word is that a shot of Vodka and soda is under 80 calories.... ?
I like Tito's and Perrier lime on the rocks....I declare, Tito's has a slight botanical flavor that suites me just fine.
Fine Bourbons neat or Innis & Gunn beer when I get back down to fighting weight.
