Polish potato vodka, what could be more classic? This triple-distilled vodka is far smoother than its budget price tag would indicate, offering a light sweetness, a light to moderate medicinal body, and a touch of vanilla on the finish. There’s some charcoal in the nose — a by-product of the filtering, to be sure — but otherwise Luksusowa (Polish for “luxury”) doesn’t ring a false note. A traditional vodka with some modern flair, this spirit is perfect as a mixer and can work straight, too.
