Proof66 Notes

Absolut vodka is one of the top-selling brands of vodka in the world and is one of the great visionaries in the marketing of vodka. Their aggressive and occasionally scandalous ads in the nineties helped launch the cocktail culture.

Absolut claims "all natural ingredients" with "no added sugar." It officially began production in 1979 and, to this day, they take great pride in their production facilities in Ahus, Sweden where "every drop of water" comes from a sin

I have tried at least a dozen brands of vodka. When it comes to vodka used for mixing...especially for a vodka martini, Absolut is the best there is. I make a vodka martini with three ounces of Absolut, a splash of dry vermouth, and extra olives. The result is the same each and every time....perfect, perfect, perfect. I have only one reservation regarding Absolut, and it is a reservation more for the company, rather than the spirit itself: The original Absolut vodka is smooth, silky, and delicious, either neat, or as part of a cocktail. I believe, however that Absolut is spending too much time, money and other resources on producing their considerably wide range of flavored vodkas: acai berry, mango, wild tea, pomegranate, etc. I have never been a fan of flavored vodka. Absolut should stick to their original vodka, plus maybe four other varieties. I would recommend Absolut 100, Apple, Citron, Mandarin Orange, and maybe Vanilla. With around twenty flavor varieties to choose from, the Absolut brand has become diluted. Stick to producing outstanding bottles of vodka without the foo-foo flavors, and Absolut will remain the best out there in terms of quality, smoothness, taste, and price.

That's a fair review! I get tired of all the flavors, too. Ridiculous. But at least Absolut avoided all the candy flavors (whipped cream, candy cinnamon, etc.). Their flavors are often well-thought out. And I personally loved the Wild Tea and the Orient Apple. They weren't sweet at all and very interesting. But for all that, I agree: it's good to have a nice, clean vodka.

It's a decent middle of the road vodka. The more you expand your horizons by trying other vodkas the less you'll like it though. A good choice for a house party.

Best cheap vodka. Not much else to say, it's better than Smirnoff.

Nice vodka. Great for shots, not really made for sipping. Works incredibly well in cocktails.

This vodka is heavy on the ethanol nose and harsh on the palate. Obviously vodka but not as balanced, for instance, as Blue Ice, which is clearly a vodka but with no rough edges. Absolute is clearly not the equal of Blue Ice even when Absolute is on sale and the price is equal to Blue Ice. There simply is no good reason to buy Absolute if Reyka or Blue Ice are available, or even cheaper but tasty vodkas. For instance, Boru is more agreeable to the palate than the Absolute, and is 45 cents cents per ounce cheaper.As always, tastes are subjective but I think the Rabble Rating reflects the truth. The Proof66 rating is somewhat exagerated. I do not mix, but do drop in a frozen lime slice.

Worst fucking vodka ever... Not only does it burn like the most damned place in hell, gives you a deadly headache followed by wicked hangover that lasts througout the day from morning to evening. At least smirnoff does not hit your head like a truck after drinking few shots of it.

Excellent mixer, enjoyable straight but a little bit on the pricey side. I don't like the grain taste, gives the burn a bit of a kick which is good when you mix it up, so you know it's still there, but smoothened up.

One of the better mixup shake-stir vodka, really good body, a little bit weak after taste but a good companion to drink with cocktails or lemon-citric sodas, but if you want to drink it on shots it falls in the middle table of vodkas but that's not bad if you drink it cold, it's a vodka that it's bottle will always get everyone attention and your friends would love you if you bring one of this to a party

One night many years ago, a pretty redheaded coed sat on my lap as we shared sips of Absolut straight from the bottle. Fond memories aside, it is still an enjoyable vodka.

This is my mainstay vodka because I have no reason to try any other. Affordable and available and not overpowering.

This swedish version of Koskenkorvan Viina, which is very awful, but traditional finnish vodka. Absolut has the same disgusting ethanolic aftertaste. And in Finland this ain't even cheap.

what is there to say? It's vodka with no taste other than alcohol and water. Doesn't seem to give as bad a hangover if you have one to may. But then again if you drink enough for a hangover you probably aren't drinking for quality.

Drinkable is the word for it; it's not any better than that. Maybe it's my imagination, but I can taste a remnant of the charcoal they used to filter it, and I don't like it.
