Probably the smoothest, most balanced vodka I've ever had. Almost sweet, Zyr is amazing. I've only been to a handful of bars that carry Zyr; more should carry it because it is clearly one of the best vodkas in the world (based on my opinion and on the opinion of people on this site!).

Pyat Ozer

For the price ($19USD/750ml), it's really hard to beat. On par with Stoli Gold (actually quite similar in flavor profile) for quite a bit less. I would say it is borderline premium vodka.

One of the best top-shelf vodkas on the market. Smooth, minimal bite. Aromas of bread/yeast on the nose. I would have given this 5 stars 3 years ago...but the prices have just crept up over and over, to the point that I no longer consider it a GG/Belevedere competitor. I go to Zyr or similar now (in the $28-32/750 price point).

Russian Diamond

Solid, smooth. Not much of a bite - good for Vodka drinkers who don't like the taste of Vodka, I suppose.

Not super smooth, a bit off balance. Heavy bitterness. I've had this a lot of times (it was my go-to instead of Grey Goose before I was educated on vodka) but for $32-34/750ml there are many better options.
