My brother in law bought me this bottle of Grays Peak Small Batch vodka for Christmas. Dang nice looking bottle. I haven't opened it yet. But I'm wondering who here has a preference for vodka and if you really can tell the difference between one American Vodka and another?
This one is going to end up in white russians anyway. The Dude would doubtless approve.
I’m allergic to liquor. It makes me break out in handcuffs.
I know nothing of this brand.
Here are some recipe suggestions...
Send it to me, I’ll taste it and let you know.
Try Sobieski from Poland.
Vodka, cigarettes, fireworks. What kind of a sick woman brings this to a fifteen year old?
At least with Hennigan’s, you don’t smell.
But she would have been a great date back in the day.
What is it made out of? A lot of what is sold as vodka is basically neutral grain spirits, maybe filtered, cut with water and perhaps flavored.
If you are looking for real vodka, look for potatoes on the label.
Otherwise, just get some Golden Grain and bottled water, and make your own ‘Vodka’.
That is a beautiful vodka.
Do NOT mix it.
It is meant to be drank straight.
Neat or on the rocks.
Use an el cheapo vodka for White Russians.
Most vodkas can not be properly identified except by the most discerning of tastes buds and even then, only in a side by side comparison. Mix it with anything and it is next to impossible to distinguish for most people.
Put it in the freezer and drink shots. A slice of cucumber as a chaser. I learned d this drinking with a Soviet officer n Hungary in 88.
I was just thinking of that epi. Must have been from looking at the VCR at my parents. Still had all the parts...(but it was dying).
Tells me all I need to know: “The purity of Grays Peak vodka is only achieved by using premium corn that is distilled five times using water that undergoes a proprietary reverse osmosis process that removes any trace minerals typically found in spring waters that can produce “hot” flavors.” Sounds like corn whiskey and filtered tap water.
Vodka is alcohol and water. The best stuff is pure and will not give you a headache. Impurities give you a headache.
I’ve always preferred Stolichnaya. Not the flavored ones.
Your article is titled “Vodka Vanity”: I’ve often suspected many vanity posts here should have had that label. I’ve come dangerously close to posting one myself more than once.

Me also and I get three days of bottle flue. My kidney and liver have still not recovered and it has been over 30 years. Most people don’t realize that alcohol is a poison and can dissolve even neoprene.
