Smoothest, Least GI-Irritating, Vodka

I'm trying to find a new vodka to drink and my only real experience is with Triple 8, which I like, but find has a bit of a harsh aftertaste.

I'm trying to find something that's both pleasant to drink and easy on stomach and parts below... I've heard good things about "Imperia," but sounds pricey, so wonder if there are more economical alternatives.

(And FWIW, I plan to throw some whole vanilla beans into to flavor the Vodka--not sure if certain brands work better for that or not.)

  1. Try Ceren Vodka; it's distilled from sugar cane, is very smooth and slightly sweet. Would work well w/ Vanilla beans.

      Thanks. I don't fully understand why they get to call that Vodka and not Rum...

        Probably because Vodka is distilled to 95% ABV, removing most of those other pesky flavor components.
