      Not exactly obscure but we have amassed quite the collection of Van Gogh Vodka at home. The Dutch Caramel is crazy good.

      usually go with the grey goose, since it's super smooth and doesn't leave me feeling like crap the next day, but if i don't feel like springing the dough for that and i want something cheaper i go for Rain

      ketel one or belvedere are my go-to vodkas





      ciroc is NOT smooth, IMO. very sharp


      i hate flavored spirits that aren't schnappes.


      *ON TOPIC*

      Blavod


      it's a "black" (really dark blue) tinted vodka that's pretty damn good, and fun to mix with

      I guess obscurity varies where you come from....

      but Ketel One seems to be one that surprise people. It's not super cheap, not super expensive, and is very smooth; i prefer it over some of the bigger brands like Belevedere or Skyy.

      I don't think I've ever had Ketel One or Belvedere but I can't stand Skyy.

      ive never cared for belvedere, i dont think its very smooth vodka. skyy is a bit lower shelf than ketel 1 even, but I do order ketel 1 in a dirty martini, i prefer it.

      Grey Goose is disgusting and overpriced imo. Although saying this is cliche, this is THE smoothest vodka I've ever had:

      Zubrowka with sugar free apple juice is the way to go!
      Belvedere
      Effen

      Three Olives Chocolate with Three Olives Cherry is good as well.

      My wife buys Pinnacle brand whipped cream flavored vodka that is delicious, though I'm sure it is frowned upon for actual vodka drinkers.

      On another note, "NutLiquor" made me lol at my desk at work.

      my favorite brands of Vodka?

      Kettle One & Tonic with a lime twist.

      neat, simple, delicious.




      as well as Stoli, one of the most underpriced, great tasting smooth vodkas



      I do love my grey goose martinis as well as if im going to drink a drink neat.

      extra dirty and extra olives please!

      I LOVE that Pinnacle stuff. At first I thought, "wow .. whipped cream flavored vodka? Seriously?" Then I tasted it. Majorly yummy! It really doesn't taste like whipped cream to me. More just like very sweet vodka that covers up a lot of the unpleasant taste that lower end vodka typically has.

      The chocolate one is decent too. But the whipped cream version is by far my favorite.

      Used to really like Ketel, which I dont consider 'obscure.' Now I mainly stick to Effen.

      I tend to think Vodka is yet another example of Russia's failings, but Chopin potato vodka is about as good as rubbing alcohol can get. I do like Gin though.

      That stuff is excellent, I'm a huge wine and beer guy, and while I don't get into Vodka much, Boyd and Blair rocks. They're local to me and have only been open a few years, but apparently Spirit Journal ranked them as the #1 Vodka in the world and the 22nd best liquor.
