My vote:


Doesn't taste like antifreeze and not Grey Goose expensive.

Anyone know a reliable place to get some online?

Picked up a 750 of Svedka ($15) and a 375 of Tito's ($12) at lunch. score. will test soon!

Sam: NY may have laws against outside liquor shipments in which case nobody will do it. go to the tito's website and look for a place and drive.

Sam -

I know they sell it in the 5 boroughs - why go online and pay shipping?

I did that already, which is why I asked him when I saw he said he knows places in the five boroughs.

The authorized retailers on their site are all in upstate.

I bought my first-ever bottle at Morrell's in Rockefeller Center. Tito's used to advertise a ton in the NYT, and I just grabbed a bottle first time I saw it. I would think they have it in any bigger place, like a Buy-Rite(if they're still around).

Just looked around - they have it at the Greene Grape on Fulton in Fort Greene.

RESULTS!

chilled both a bit and poured into sample glasses.

Tito's: smooth with a little bit of spiciness. not harsh at all, but not quite "neutral" in flavor either. I think I'd save this for drinking straight or in milder drinks or SUPER dry martinis (ie just the tiniest touch of xdry vermouth)

Svedka: even smoother. you'd swear there was some heavy cream in there somewhere. it's a notch less harsh than the Tito's (and Tito's isn't harsh at all) and doesn't have the spiciness. for the price, I'd mix it in just about everything where you can taste the vodka or even have it straight if the mood suited me. the dirty martini I just made with it has a nice mouth-coating savoriness with this stuff.

Luksusowa: giving this one away at my next party. too much rocket fuel harshness that overwhelms the flavor. I might just be sensitive to it since the gf didn't have the same reaction (nasty face and tongue hanging out).

not bad not bad. thanks for your help everyone!

Good to see you had some good results. I have been following the thread with interest but without any advice. Looked for Tito's in the grocery store last night with no luck, but Svedka was $13.99.

I will be buying one or both soon.

seriously, start with the svedka. I hope all the bars I go to have it because it's what I'm gonna mix with when I'm out as a bench mark. unless they give me free tastes of other cheapies.

I'm a straight/rocks guy. Will likely try both but will be picking up the Svedka.

grab some ciroc if you like it straight. it's not the cheapest, but quite drinkable by itself.

We have a bottle of Sveda at home right now and I think it is fine, though we tend to use it for mixers. I'll have to look up that Tito's stuff next time I hit a liquor store.

On a dare I took a shot of straight Everclear when I was young and stupid. I'll never do that again.
