Rating Description

90th Percentile
This score falls in the 90th percentile of all spirits in the Vodka category and is an example of the very best in its class.

Notes

First launched in 1928, Luksusowa Vodka is named for the Polish word for "luxury." It is made with potatoes grown in northern Poland and artesian well water they claim is from the Oligocene Epoch (about 30 million years ago). It is filtered through charcoal and--interestingly--oak chips. The name should be prounounced "Luk-soos-so-vuh."

I know nothing of Vodka... I am a former Gin drinker. I have not had a drink since 1999. Anyway, I tried a little of this. The smell right from the bottle (and fridge) is just like rubbing alcohol. I put a bit into the freezer and it lost a bit of the smell and taste. When I tasted it after it had cooled in the fridge I found it tasted like rubbing alcohol. The taste disappears fairly quickly. No "creaminess or smoothness" as noted by other reviewers. Not something I could drink neat on a regular basis but mixed it should be OK. This does not rate any higher score than a two.

This Polish gem is extremely smooth with a rather pleasing sweetish finish. It's a potato vodka so has a slightly creamier feel, which is quite enjoyable. It'd rate it higher than even Sobieski, probably equal to Tito's which is slightly smoother, but doesn't have the mouthfeel or finish that this does. Grey Goose < Svedka < Ciroc < Sobieski < Luksusowa.

My 'go to' vodka on a normal day. Not at chopin's level, but very good, with a great price.

Don’t let the price fool you. If I could only take one brand of wódka and live in a hermitage the rest of my life, this would be the one. I drink this very, very chilled maybe with nothing else but a solitary anchovy olive. You will appreciate the taste and smoother texture that comes from potato mash. It is a rich tasting spirit diluted by pure artesian water containing no mineral content. I can’t think of any other wódka that gets as viscous when chilled in the freezer. But, don’t keep the bottle in the deep freeze for more than a couple weeks. Potatoes like bananas don’t fare well in low temperatures. After a while something in their chemistry starts breaking down.

Not a big vodka drinker but at least this one doesn't remind me of rubbing alcohol.Smooth for an unaged spirit butmost importantly for a vodka disappears when mixed.

Now that I've tried this I definitely prefer it to Skyy or probably Pinnacle. It's pretty clean but it's got a nice sweetness and a subtle character kind of taste, something maybe related to the potatos in it. Very sophisticated for this price range.

Not a vodka fan at all but this is alright. Rich textured vodka with a low burn. Very fair price at $20 a handle.

I normally mix vodka with something.  But for this review I poured a glass neat.  The smell starts off with the usual grain alcohol smell.  The taste is neutral with some burn.  It fills your tongue and goes down smooth.  Very pleasant with no harshness.

One of my favorites. Inexpensive, available at local (Detroit area) stores. A great value and a great vodka.

I find that most vodkas trade between being either clean or smooth, and Luksusowa is definitely a cleaner vodka. With that said, like the other reviewers here, it's got some bite... though with a vodka I think smoothness is sometimes overemphasized -- I kinda like a vodka with some nice crispness to it. At the price-point, this is a really exceptional vodka. I think one of the more neutral vodkas I've tried.

Holds up very well against other, more expensive vodkas.  Smooth going down and no harsh after taste.

Very clean with no aftertaste makes it excellent to drink neat, frozen or room temp. Price makes it unbeatable value.

An good value for the money - One of the few potato vodkas out there and one that does no charge an arm and a leg. Many Poles consider this an "Old style vodka" - that's fine with me. It's not fancy, but a good solid vodka with a nice mouthfeel and taste.
