I'm sipping on Pear Wyborowa. My mother-in-law gave me some lemon vodka (2 shots) on Saturday which gave me a taste for it. However, I looked at the bottle as I pulled it out from the fridge and saw it was pear. Ah well, pear vodka is not bad.

It has a harsh quality to it, this one. Wyborowa usually do better but I'm only gonna have 2 shots anyway as it's calorific stuff, vodka. Polish shots, of course :) :)

Probably better than this Wyborowa although I will likely try the lemon one on Sunday. I gave it to my father-in-law today as a birthday present so he will likely crack it open on Sunday. I hope he chills it as vodka needs to be chilled. I miss those kamikaze drinks filled with sth blue (blue curacao??). They are brain-freeze drinks, wonderful! Filled with ice and they sink down the hatch ever so easily.

Orkisz is a smooth vodka that goes down easy.A little pricey but has good taste

If it's smoother than Wyborowa, I'd go for it. Wyborowa varies from vodka to vodka.

I think its Dutch actually. Although I may be wrong.

I was gonna correct you before by saying it is Dutch but I need to check more sources as the ones I'm checking are telling me it's Polish.

Vodka is vodka. Can taste good, can taste bad.
Although if you still want to find a difference you may consider one Orthodox and the other one Catholic.

[Moved from]: Polish liquor ('wódka korzenna')

My friend once brought a bottle of Polish liquor. She said it's vodka. The label on the bottle said something like "korzana". The drink was strong and sweet, amber in colour and had anise flavor. I was not able to trace thus far, never saw it in the stores. Maybe someone can give me some prompts.

I have been looking for Polish " Kosher " vodka, there was a large selection a fews years ago, now I can't find any in the large supermarkets in Warsaw. Any ideas which outlets sell " Kosher" vodka in warsaw?

^ What he said.

BTW did anyone see in the news this week that archaeologists have discovered evidence of winemaking in Armenia dating back 50,000 years?

I think they have to redo the slogan:

Alcohol, helping ugly people get laid for over 5000 years!

Sobieski is my favorite Polish vodka. Belvadere in my opinion is overhyped. I find Chopin to be much better than belvadere.

lol you kept a bottle of belvedere for a souvenir? haha

Sobieski is my favorite Polish vodka. Belvadere in my opinion is overhyped. I find Chopin to be much better than belvadere.

I got horrible 3 day stomach acid after drinking a good amount of Sobieski straight. Now it created a psychological disgust for me to hate that vodka and any other cheap vodkas.

But yes Chopin is my absolute favorite hands down, and goes down very smoothly.

Chopin is smooth, but doesn't have much of a flavor to it. Belvedere is worse, doesn't go down all that smooth and tastes a bit metallic to me. I actually like Pan Tadeusz quite a bit. It's cheap(er), but I'd rather drink that then the pricier stuff.

On a side note, "Tito's", made in Austin, is awesome! I had some when I was in the US, great vodka, and pretty damn cheap. Comes highly recommended if you like the clear stuff.

Really? The wine specialty store where I live has tons of it, and it's the only vodka they sell. I looked down upon it and never bought a bottle since it was made in Texas.
