Vodka Taste Test

Vodka is a relatively flavourless drink, however there are differences between them. You will only notice these when you drink it straight, and as a mixer almost anything will do, unless it is really bad. Prices are in Australian Dollars, and reflect what I paid in early 2007 (normally lower than full retail).
I have tested the following:


Absolut:
Paid $34
Smooth taste.
3 1/2 stars

Finlandia:
Paid $31
Smooth taste, nice mouth feel.
4 stars

Smirnoff Red:
Paid $43 (for 1.1L bottle)
Quite acceptable, but has a ‘spirit’ taste. Good mixer.
3 stars

Stolichnya:
Paid $34
Smooth taste.
3 1/2 stars

My favourite way to drink vodka? A long glass of soda with juice of half a lime and a measure of vodka. Very refreshing in hot weather. I also enjoy it straight up, with or without ice.

Next tastings: I am going to buy some cheaper vodkas and see how they rate. I can hardly wait!
