Absolut Vodka versus... flavor test

Post Absolut Vodka versus... flavor test 
I was at the local supermarket today, and noticed that they had a nice sale on select vodkas. I thought, why not buy the competition and test them against Absolut Vodka drool

So I got myself some famous brand names consisting of: Belvedere ($25), Grey Goose ($26), Ketel One ($22), and of course Absolut (below $20) -- 750ml bottles.



I'm not a tasting expert by any means (these are just my personal preferences)... here's how I ranked them:

#1 Belvedere
#2 Grey Goose
#3 Ketel One
#4 Absolut

Anyhow, I had some fun with this... after a while, though, it became more difficult to clearly differentiate between some of them Rolling Eyes

I'd like to hear your thoughts... any other vodkas you like?

Cheers!

Nice picture ...

I completely agree with your rankings :

#1 Belvedere
#2 Grey Goose
#3 Ketel One
#4 Absolut

However , Belvedere & Grey Goose are very close in my opinion.   Ketel One and Absolut don't even belong in the same taste test. They're just that far behind....

Stoli Elit is also very very good and really smooth. But thats more of a premium vodka and really doesn't fit the price rance of the other bottles.

Crystal Head is also really a nice vodka.  I'm partial to that vodka because it has production ties to my home area.  The quartz crystals that its filtered through
are from a few miles down the road from where I live.  And the bottle is a piece of artwork.

Fantastic idea this is... although I would have recommended bringing Level & Elyx into it to spice things up!
for me...
1)Grey Goose is right up there at number 1... ( mainly because of its flavours)
2)Belvedere Intense Unfiltered
3)Level by Absolut
4)Chase Vodka - A must try english potato vodka
5) Christiania vodka in the states - good stuff.

in terms of same price bracket, the danzka vodkas are pretty decent for flavour & taste in terms of price.

hopefully i've persuaded you to try something other than absolut. Jesper, you've seen my vodka collection... Okay

Yeah, it would probably be a more "fair" tasting test had I used Level instead of the blue label. At KK -- there's quite a difference between vodkas, not only in taste, but also viscosity and smell. As part of the collectors meeting in Berlin (photos), the Akademi program included a great tasting class where we got to compare the different vodkas shown below (tough way to start off the morning right after partying until 5am the night before... ha-ha).
