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?

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.

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.

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.

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

>>12204953
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.
