I abolutely love the Absolute pepper flavor for the occasional Bloody Mary, But the Skyy in the pretty blue bottle looks better on the bar shelf. I honestly can't taste a big difference in any of the vodkas,though.( Maybe the kids have been watering them down too much?) Money well spent for a premium liquor is in the Tequila brands,where you most certainly get what you pay for. But I have two problems the next day when I drink tequila. First, I have to find my car. Then I have to return the one I took.
