Popular Brands of Vodka

I prefer Grey Goose. In my experience, it's one of the finest vodkas around. It's very smooth and very high quality. It's one of the only vodkas that I would drink mixed with a bit of water, straight.

Drink the same amount of Grey Goose one evening and wake up feeling great, drink the same amount of Smirnoff or another low quality vodka and wake up feeling like death.
