    Smirnoff is cheap and works perfect. Anything more and you're wasting money. I mean, it is vodka. Lol

    Stoli. The only time I was ever too drunk to fish.

    Stolichnaya is the complete name in case anyone is living in a sheltered place. Despite that, I still keep some around!

    Kirkland has 2 different Vodkas, an American and a French.

    The American is around $16 and the French is around $26.

    It is the French one that people say is made by Grey Goose.

    I read something a while back that said Costco bought a Grey Goose distillery in France, don't know if it is true or not.

    Disgusting is putting mildly, that stuff is vile......

    While I have never tasted fuel oil, the one night that I did drink 5’ o Clock (straight), fuel oil, for some reason, kept coming to mind.

    When I use to travel to Europe a lot this was the duty free booze that was a must have.

    Great vodka should be consumed in shot form or on the rocks.

    That said I’m drinking Smirnoff at the moment because mixed who can tell.

    Seagram's vodka is a staple. Backup if we're running low on Kirkland.

    Can't go wrong with a handle of Titos. Toss in some ginger beer and limes and you got a party.

    Personally, I cannot taste a difference, at all, with anything more $ than 5 o'clock. Why anyone would drink straight vodka or pay for a "premium" brand is beyond me. But to each their own...

    Just get something in a unique bottle.

    I just can't get into straight vodka, no matter how "good". But, I agree on if it is mixed you can't tell.

    One of my best friends sister drinks Grey Goose and only Grey Goose. She says she can tell the difference, so who knows. She has also said that the cheaper stuff gives her a hell of a hangover, maybe there is something to that.

    Every Vodka tastes different. Quite different usually. I cant believe you couldn't taste the difference.
