Vodka Taste Test #2 – Another 16 of the Best Reviewed

Well it’s almost been a year since I shot my “16 of the Best Vodkas” video so it was time to review another 16. This time I made sure to include Grey Goose, Ketel 1 and Ciroc since they were asked about so much after being excluded from the other video. I also review Chopin’s new Wheat Vodka, Jean Marc XO, Koskenkorva, Absolut Elyx, Heavy Water, Dry Fly, Cinco, Cirrus, Boyd & Blair, Hanger 1, Russian Standard Gold, Chase, and Three Olives.

In the end my opinions were that Jean Marc XO, Heavy Water, Chase, Koskenkorva and Absolut Elyx were my favorites (for “clean” vodkas).
Dry Fly, Ciroc and Boyd & Blair would be my choice for uniquely “flavorful” sipping vodkas (though Ciroc could also have been listed with the “clean” vodkas above).
The others all had their good points but they would also have a defect or two (to spicy, thin mouthfeel, noticeable alcohol, etc…) that would keep them from competing with the others.

As of 7-16-13, my current bottle count stands at 1101 total bottles. I have 701 different ones in the bar & another 400 in back stock. I’ve now been actively collecting for the last 19 years and what started as a small basic bar has transformed (with the help & understanding of my wonderful wife) into what I think is a pretty nice collection. Thank you for watching and sharing in my hobby.

zstidsen says:

couldn’t help but notice that the vessels you are sampling each vodka with are different… don’t you think that might create a variable in what you are nosing?
