I bought the best stuff my local place had (not this store as they have more) and out of Belvedere, Grey Goose, lesser Stoli's, Crystal Head, and Ciroc, ELIT was my favorite. Smoothest crispest one. I have yet to add Beluga and The Exchange or Kauffman to the list to compare it to, but I heard those 3 are in the same class of elite vodka's.
Stolichnaya Elit Vodka
97 Points-Beverage Tasting Institute
"Clear. Extremely neutral nose with faint hints of bread and custard. Supple and satiny with a dryish medium-full body and a very long, dried citrus, meringue, anise, talc, and powdered sugar accented finish. Amazingly clean, smooth, lively and elegant. A truly world-class vodka."
