Vodka for a picky vodka-lover

Illuminatus | May 13, 2009 11:44 PM

My uncle has a birthday coming up and he has been a vodka drinker for over 40 years. He is very particular about his vodka. He drinks vodka straight on the rocks with a splash of water. He always says he wants the vodka with the least amount of taste in it, the most pure and clean. He has said that most vodka's he has tried give him hangovers because they have too much flavor in them. Brands such as Stoli, Finlandia, Grey Goose etc etc all do not work for him. Smirnoff has been one he says he could always handle that would not give him bad hangovers but most of the popular brands he says he cannot deal with.

So my question to you is, I would like to buy him a bottle for his birthday. Which one can you recommend that has the least amount of flavor and is the cleanest and purist without costing an arm and a leg?

Some reco's I have gotten already are:

Iceberg Vodka from Canada

Tito's Vodka

Any more please?
