Default Your vodka of choice?

I am currently tasting a bottle of Ultimat Vodka that I got for free to sample. It is very smooth, and I am comparing to my long time favorite Ketel One.

Has anyone else tried this vodka? I must say it is very good indeed.

What are your favorites?

Belvedere is the best bang for the buck IMO.

I buddy introduced me to Ultimat Vodka and it's hands down the best vodka that I've tried (I admit that I'm fairly new to good vodka). He also recommeded stoli elite, but I haven't tried that one yet.

Currently on a Luksusowa kick and have been since going to Poland recently. Good, clean, and it's cheap. Hard to beat that combo.

Edit: Another decent (and super duper cheap) one that I've had here and a ton of in Poland is Sobieski. Not as good as Luksusowa but you can get a handle of it for less than a decent cigar and it mixes just fine.

Luksusowa has now replaced all the more expensive vodkas I used to keep in the freezer. I actually prefer the taste of it (which is truly all that matters) and would still buy it at a much higher price.

Edit2: My true favorite is probably Zubrowka (the Polish one made with bison grass, which is illegal to import to the US--the version they sell here is crap).

Edit3: Wow, looks like I've become a Polish vodka whore

I drink Svedka. If I want something a little more refined, I will buy belvedere. But not very often. I only buy nice vodka when making martinis.

My girlfriend doesn't care what kind of vodka she drinks, so for her it's whatever is on sale for 9.97 for a half gallon

So what do you do with the vodka while pouring the gin?

I am one of those "purists".
Enjoying one right now, as a matter of fact.

Don't get me wrong. I like vodka, too. Even shaken over ice and served in a martini glass with a twist (lemon or lime).

I like gin martini's as well. I really think gin is an acquired taste tho, I remember the first time I had gin I wanted to spit it out right away.

That said, I am by no means a purist, I enjoy both vodka martini's and gin martini's from their own respective stance.


Also, I made up my decision, Ultimat is hands down the best Vodka I have ever tasted. Get yourself a bottle or order some at a bar if you see it. On the rocks this baby shows its true eliteness.
