Review: Grey Goose Vodka

It’s easy to see why Grey Goose has become one of the most successful new liquor brands in recent years. This is a fantastic vodka, smooth and lightly sweet, with a nutty nose and aftertaste that works well in cocktails and adds an interesting complexity when served straight.

Grey Goose is very mild, quite neutral on the whole. Maybe a hint of pepper, or citrus fruit, if you search for it. It’s also not too oily, even when ice cold, a common trait of virtually all vodkas.

And yet, for all its heralded luxury status, Grey Goose is not all that expensive. $27 compares well to some similar ultra-luxe brands and it tastes far better. Sure, I’d rather have Tito’s or Boomerang at about $16, but those are boutique bottles that you aren’t likely to find in the average bar. Grey Goose? It’s everywhere, and if you’re calling a vodka brand, this is one that merits the hype that surrounds it.

    Grey Goose is made from wheat instead of grain – giving you NO hangover! For real – Grey Goose is the bomb!

    Having had many vodkas, almost universally neat and somewhat chilled, I can say that grey goose ranks as one of the worst vodkas I’ve tasted. The strong liquorice flavor is exactly what you don’t want in a vodka; it tastes much closer to Jaegar than vodka. Nice bottle; not worth the $32-$37 it costs around these parts; I’d be tempted to take a real vodka like Hangar One and re bottle it, but that would disgrace Hangar One.

    I remember when I was 12, I had to have Vidal Sassoon shampoo. But then, I became 13, 14, well I just kept getting older and older and, I don’t know, maybe more mature. If your date demands Grey Goose, then you are a dirty old man and if I were you I’d proceed with caution if you want to hold on to the ‘vette and the bank account!

    Grey Goose is overrated swill, blind you cannot distinguish it from a cheap brand like Absolut or Alberta Pure. Reviews like this really make me wonder about the integrity of these websites.

    Honestly, whoever is praising this vodka is brainwashed by the mass marketing machine. Is Grey Goose as horrendous as say, Smirnoff….no. But this is not premium vodka..not even close in fact. Stop listening to the dip shit rappers, idiot herd following sheep (aka celebrities) and start drinking ACTUAL premium vodka (Ketel One, Chopin, Jewel of Russia, Luksosowa.) Do a little research….Grey Goose is a complete fraud founded by an AMERICAN named Sidney Frank (’s not really French) who just placed the distillery in France because he knew Americans associated luxury with anything French. Also, the reason the price is marked up so high is because he wanted this vodka to be marketed to a certain crown that wants to feel special…ahem…celebrities. He figured that if celebrities love this swill..then of course dip shit regular folk will jump right on board the “I’m just as cool as a celebrity train” and start buying it. Pretty ingenious, right? One more thing…notice how pretty the bottle is?? Probably the prettiest on the shelf right? Yea, that was done on purpose. He knew we as a species are pretty shallow, and we always want the prettiest thing out there. Well, that’s your education for the day kids. In the future…start doing some research and thinking for yourselves…just because something has a good reputation, and looks good…that doesn’t mean it is. There’s always a fraud hidden behind most things…especially when money is involved.
