The world's best-selling vodka, Absolut is a Swedish institution and its stylish, innovative marketing campaigns are legendary. Famed for its purity, Absolut has been producing quality vodka since 1879.
Not my favourite, but the price is decent. It has something about it, I don't know how to describe it, that just doesn't do it for me. I actually prefer Russian Standard.

I see some Diageo people have posted enough. Try Absolut next to any other vodka and it will stand up to the competition. Superb vodka for the price

Yes, Absolut is one of the best selling vodka brands in the world but that does not mean it's of a lesser qualty than those ultra-premiun brands selling for +30 euros. I don't like big-brand-bashing, if it's good it's good and if it's bad it's bad. In the case of Absolut it's good; easy to enjoy neat and it makes an excellent screwdriver, what more can you really ask for?

This is just pure alcohol. Love it or leave it. Very good for mixing etc. because it does not ruin the taste of the drink like most other vodkas.

I disagree with the previous posts, I think this is a good vodka. It has a pleasant, neutral taste when drunk neat, much better than Smirnoff, which I find has a nasty sweetness to it.

I agree; its a harsh tasting vodka. Prefer nearly any other brand e.g. Smirnoff, Stolichnaya etc

Awful! I am literally using it to clean my windows. At least it's good for something.

Good mixed with Cola but not on it's own like Stoli!

As with all of the Absolut range, it really is a case of style over substance. With a harsh heat and sharp aftertaste , it really goes to prove that in a neutral spirit purity does not equate to a quality vodka. Try Luksusowa for a smooth neutral vodka with a delicious buttery aftertaste!
