I thought true vodka was potato based, a la Russian vodka. Or is that a new thing.
Myth. Grain alcohol may be made from fruits, grains or roots like potato. Once its a grain alcohol, it no longer contains any components of what it was derived from. If it does, its not vodka.

"Colourless distilled liquor of neutral spirits usually made from a grain mash (generally rye or wheat). Potato vodka originated in Russia in the 14th century. Today most vodka is distilled from cereal grains. It is highly neutral, most flavouring substances having been eliminated during distillation and filtration, the latter process employing charcoal purifiers. Distilled water is usually added before bottling in order to lower alcohol content to 40–43% by volume (80–86 proof). Vodka is not aged. It is traditionally consumed unmixed and chilled, in small glasses; in the U.S. and elsewhere, it is often used in mixed drinks."

Understood. But what I was getting at was that, weren't the first vodkas potato based? Since vodka is a Russian word and the originator of the vodka process. So if you're trying to be a purist wouldn't you desire a potato based vodka?

(Yes in essence all alcohol is vodka/grain alcohol until aged in it's respective flavor giving medium. I'm familiar with the distilling processes....thank you History Channel.)

Any Russian vodka's taste harsh to me and leave me with a hangover every time. Kirkland vodka (France) was good when opened, a week later it taste like rubbing alcohol. Grey Goose is over-rated and too expensive for the taste. It is about equal to Skyy in my opinion, but a little sweater. I have not tried Chopin, but seeing that I LOVE Belvedere and it is a Polish vodka like Chopin I could imagine it is smooth. Polish vodka is the way to go.

I drank half a bottle of Crystal Head one night. Was ok, but I woke up with a HORRIBLE headache. Maybe I just drank too much.

as others have mentioned. my criteria for vodka is not taste (Since i am usually using it in mixed drinks anyway), but if it gives me a hangover the next morning. best i have found so far is ketel one. i did just buy a bottle of titos which came highly recommended but i have not tried it yet.

Correction : There is Chopin... then everything else. =)
Everyone has their preferences.
I wouldn't touch Chopin or belvedere with a 10 foot pole.
Russian standard platinum is my choice of poison.

So you're basically paying for everything but the liquor here. I buy couple bottles of stoli when they're on sale at Costco. I like it better than Kettle One, aka, rubbing alcohol.

Reyka vodka. If I'm drinking strait vodka it's got to be Reyka now that I've tried it. If I'm mixing it, then whatever's cheapest. I'll drink white russians with bartons.

i can put away half a bottle over the course of the night but if its bad vodka you have a headache the next day. Any XO congac is still better than any fancy vodka out there.

A good potato vodka is Luksusowa. Its from Poland and costs about $11 750ml.
Another good Polish vodka is Sobieski its $11 for 750ml.

A good vodka from the US is 360 Vodka. Its about $18 per 750ml. It also has a good "Earth Friendly" program so you can feel even better when feelin' good.

Personally, I don't really like any Russian vodkas as they have a bitter finish to them no matter the cost level.
