What is the best tasting vodka?

Also a friend of mine told me I was a swine for keeping my vodka in the freezer for 4 days before drinking it, he thinks only lightly chilled is acceptable. Is he right?

>> No.12204963

Vodka is shit tier anyway OP. Tell your friend to get fucked and drink how ever you want.

>> No.12204992

You and your friend are both plebs, the proper way to enjoy a bottle of vodka is to boil it on your stovetop and hold your face above the pot to catch the alcohol as it evaporates.

The cheapest vodka that doesn’t taste bad and not make you sick the next day I recommend New Amsterdam. Absolute is great when you are out drinking. When you get high quality expensive vodka then you do t have a lot of taste with it and you get drunk fast not knowing you are drinking alcohol so it’s not worth spending a lot of money.

>> No.12205162

It's apparently distilled from sugar cane. Wouldn't this technically make it cachaca or rum, depending on whether they ferment the cane juice or molasses?

>> No.12205168

Brandy is made from fruit, not sugar cane. It would be more accurate to describe it as rum/cacacha.

>> No.12205179

huh....that’s weird, ‘cause I stood in the distillery watching them throw pineapple husks into the mash; I guess they have to supplement somehow, and the sugarcane industry is essentially dead in Hawaii, so maybe that is how they keep it “local”

Ah, you've posted the wrong brand. Ocean Vodka's 'organic sugar cane' is one of their selling points, and they tout their product as the only vodka distilled from cane. This is a bit deceptive, since all you'd have to do is label it 'vodka' instead of what it technically is.


This is the pineapple vodka you're thinking of:

LVOV is decent and relatively inexpensive.
I drink it room temp straight from the bottle. It comes in a stupid-big bottle.

>> No.12205612

It all 'tastes' the fucking same. The only difference between cheap and expensive brands of vodka is how smooth it is/the similarity to paint stripper.

Keeping cheap vodka in the freezer can help with the smoothness. I used to drink decent vodka but then realised that bottom shelf vodka is just as good if it's from the freezer.

And honestly, you're only drinking it straight regularly if you're an alcy, and at that point you don't give a fuck about 'taste' anyway.

Wrong. I always keep a bottle in my freezer. Also the best is Russian Standard. Sobieski Polish vodka and Grey Goose are good, although Grey Goose is not really worth the money. Everyone always say Stolichnaya and while Stoli is good, this is not American Psycho. We're not in the 80's.

it should taste like nothing according to the U.S. gubment

Pursuant to the Code of Federal Regulations (27 CFR 5.22) defining the standards of identity for various alcohols, Vodka is in the class of neutral spirits and is defined as follows: "neutral spirits so distilled, or so treated after distillation with charcoal or other materials, as to be without distinctive character, aroma, taste, or color.”

>> No.12212516

Russian Standard, Moskowskaya, Danska, Absolut, or Wyborowa. Grasovka if you want the bison grass taste.

Stay away from the expensive stuff like Beluga, Five Lakes or Grey Goose - you won't taste a difference, it's just marketing. "It's four times the $$$, it MUST taste better!" - Well, it doesn't.
The 'good enough' threshold for Vodka is relatively low.

You can drink good Vodka at room temperature; lightly chill or take it on the rocks if like, but it's not necessary. The really bad swill is only drinkable when frozen, that's true; but a good one is ok at higher temps.

There's a lot of things in this world that 'should', but aren't. If vodka really was completely tasteless, then it'd all be the same, yet there are subtle flavour nuances that are often intentionally left in or even introduced by the distiller.

Oh and as for chilling vodka, I used to do that but don't anymore. I put vodka in a shaker over ice, then whatever other mix-ins aside from something carbonated, and shake it really good until the shaker is very cold and the ice has melted a bit. Then I'll do a small taste test keeping in mind that I'll be topping it with cold club soda or maybe sweet soda and adjust if necessary until it's right. The I fill a 20 oz glass halfway or 3/4 with ice, pour the drink over the ice and top with the carbonated beverage. Sometimes I just do ice cold water to thin out a strongly sweetened and flavored syrup.

Your friend sounds dumb as shit. Vodka is one of the few spirits that isn't supposed to have a distinct flavor. Unless he drinks shit tier Vodka it shouldn't taste like anything other than rubbing alcohol chilled. It isn't refined to enjoy that taste, it's stupid.
