In the late 1970's I started drinking vodka and was a Stoli drinker. My dad said "daughter, try Luksusowa, a Polish potato vodka, it's better and much less expensive than Stoli." My Dad was a bartender at a high end Russian restaurant in Manhattan at one point in his life. He knew his spirits. He was correct! It's been my go-to vodka ever since. I've tried many others like Belvedere, GG, Tito's, Ketel, etc. but Luks beats them every time. Very smooth and almost creamy. Plus never gives me a hangover as grain alcohols tend to do. Bonus points for the very reasonable price!

Poland Spring Vodka

For $13.99 it's not the cheapest vodka in York Maine but its better then Orloff or Crown Russ so I'm happy. Great for mixing but I have not had it straight yet but surprisingly when smelling it the vodka does not smell like pure rubbing alcohol.

Tito's Handmade Vodka

It is average. That's it. Nothing special. They have saturated the market with ad after ad and the idiots fell for it. Don't get me wrong, it's fine, not like Stolichnya it Grey Goose but it's ok. However they charge as mush as the still so nope.

Vodka and Smirnoff are basically interchangeable words. Whatever you drink, Smirnoff is the staple of Vodka that everyone tends to go by, It's not particularly great but it can be great for its price which is usually cheap. Good stuff.

Nue Vodka

This Vodka rocks...pardon the pun! Bought this today on a whim. Very glad I did. Kept in the freezer till Happy Hour. It is made of corn, distilled six times and made in Dallas, Texas. The taste is semi sweet, grainy, biscuit, grainy and buttery. It is very viscous with a note of confectioners sugar. One hell of a gluten free vodka for the vodka connisuer. So smooth and creamy. Very, very...did I say creamy goodness! A top 4 for sure!

The Quest for Purity

How many times should vodka be distilled? And when does the quest for purity go too far?

Many nations of the world have a singular drink that they have come to be identified with and that has come to be identified with them. For Russians (and Poles, Belarusans, Finns and Ukrainians), it is vodka.

Vodka on the Zakuska Table
Vodka on the Zakuska Table

Vodka is an essential part of the Russian zakuska table. When a liberal amount of the potent stuff is supplied to guests, the meal not only will be off to a fast start, but to a rollicking one as well.
