Proof66 Notes

Svekda vodka is made from Swedish winter wheat and claims to have been voted the best vodka of 2033. That's not a typo... they have claimed victory at a future date; which is nicely in keeping with their robot-lady (the party bot) mascot. The label is owned by Constellation Brands.

Lantmannen Group is a cooperative that today comprises over 40,000 Swedish farmers. It was founded in 1880 based upon improving the production and profit of farming through economies of scale. Today, it is involved in many sectors including (still) agriculture, communication technologies, energy, and machinery.

    This use to be my go-to Vodka for mixers until I found Sobieski - since then, I haven't looked back! Decent for the price but better options are out there in this price range.

    I'll go with Jaketaz on this one. The nose is not objectionable but don't think there is anything else to recommend. It is has less bite than Ketel One for example, but I don't like those squirrely flavors (indescribable) in the back finish. Of course, it was room temp. If you chill any of this crap, it can be choked down without too much difficulty. However, note the number of chaps who mention "headache/hangover". The Rabble have spoken. I note that "taste" is subjective, but "headache" is an objective reference.

    If I'm not having a martini or other drink composed mainly of vodka, this is my go-to. Use it for vodka tonics, lemon drops, cosmos and other mixed drinks. Not good for martinis, though. For that you need Tito or Stoli or Russian Standard

    Not good, leaves you with a severe hangover and tastes of rubbing alcohol. Far too expensive for the way it tastes.

    3.5 stars. I find this vodka to be very smooth and a fantastic mixer (with lemonade is a summertime favorite for me). The price is great too, miles ahead of most of the "mainstream" vodkas (Smirnoff, UV, etc)

    don't be fooled by the high ratings, it's total garbage. very cheap and very gross. I love a good vodka as much as the next guy, but you want to stay away from this, it tastes like rubbing alcohol and will make you sick if you have more than 5 ounces. go get some Tito's or Russian Standard instead, or Vox if you're the type that likes to drink vodka without tasting it.

    (2.5 out of 5). I'm torn on this one. I'm not a vodka drinker, but gave this one a try. On its own, it's oddly complex for a vodka (using the word complex pretty loosely). Has faint tastes of citrus, albeit with an alcohol burn. However, I don't think it mixes very well, and after drinking very little of it (maybe two ounces) I got quite the headache, which makes me question the distillation. Get Sobieski instead. $17 or so in my area.

    Exquisitely smooth, virtually tasteless, with subtley pleasant floral notes . Great quality, great price. I have a special preference for drinking freezer-chilled straight.

    A staple in my house.  Smooth vodka for mixing.

    Agreed. For the price point, it's one of the better choices. If you can't afford Stoli, this is a good alternative.
