Whisky, Brandy, Bacardi Rum, etc, are all better. Plain Smirnoff Vodka in my experience is completely tasteless and utterly awful; like drinking some sort of antiseptic wound cleaner ... or paint stripper. It's not that I'm weak with alcohol, I like stuff like Aftershock and the spirits mentioned above, I just hate Vodka.
I do not like this question, wheres the range of choices dude? I mean if I had to pick one I'd probably go with the person above who said Whisky neat on the rocks and Vodka with a mixer (can and will drink it neat though). Above all though I love a nice Absinthe with sugar, can't beat it!
