Another smooth vodka with great reviews!2940465.jpg
  • Classic, full-flavoured Polish vodka
  • Produced from 100 percent rye grain spirit
  • Smooth and creamy spirit with grainy, fruity and slightly flowery notes
  • Great base for your favourite mixed drink

Wyborowa Wódka, pronounced "vee-bo-rova" was founded in 1927 and translates to "excellent."

Wybo is genuine Polish vodka produced of Pure Rye Grain and pristine water from our own well. Wybo is smooth and creamy spirit with grainy, fruity and slightly flowery notes.

Best enjoyed neat or chilled as a shot the Polish way.
Wybo’s smooth taste also makes it a great base for your favourite mixed drink.

2940465.jpgA very good, and very traditional vodka. Like many of the Polish vodkas it has a full bodied flavor and a bit of an edge, but no unpleasant aftertaste. Smooth, but not as much of a "slippery" or oily mouth feel as Luksusova (but even the best grain vodkas often differ in this regard from potato vodkas). Great out of the freezer and for a quality martini.

To all the people saying that all vodkas taste the same: you either have no idea what you''re talking about, or your taste buds are gone for good!
That said, everyone has their own taste; what I can say is that Wyborowa, which I am sipping right now, is one of the vodkas I have liked the most so far. The smell is not very different than that of other vodkas I''ve tried, but it has a rather impactful taste (much more so than, say, Russian Standard), distinctly alcoholic notes (almost reminiscent of grapes?), and it gives a really pleasant burning sensation. Finally, the aftertaste is much more persistent than some other vodkas (Stolichnaya, for example).
As with many other things, price is only half the story! I suggest giving it a shot if you have the chance.

Did an Absolut course with those crazy swedes in New Zealand and they taught us everything about vodka and we did blind tasting of lots of different brands. When your being taught about them you can taste the little differences. This one was my fave over Absolut, Russian Standard,Smirnoff and Skyy. After that course I will never say all vodkas are the same. Its like saying an Ardbeg Supernova is like a Glenfiddich 18.

absolutely the smoothest vodka to drink straight up or on the rocks which is my favorite way to drink it. mixes with ease and can't be beaten on price. in a taste of this and grey goose ((blind folded) 15 of us and all but one picked wyborowa

This is a great vodka, the Polish really know their stuff when it comes to vodka and this is a classic for all the right reasons. Smooth, pure, no unpleasant burn and all at less than £20. Has to be up there with one of my favourite vodkas. You won't be disappointed.

Many places call this "Wyborowa Blue" - though there's an Exquisite version (?) which is a bit pricier and the "Blue" bottle's design has been changed, which confuses matters a tad.

Here's the agency who (I assume) did their rebranding cartils.com/bra…ka/2940465.jpg

37.5% no make water a vodka yet.
I am Polish and I can say that this is some of the worst vodka out there. Heat.
That’s an average vodka at best. There are plenty of better Polish vodkas out there.
Every polish guy will tell you that THIS vodka is the best and another one will tell you that it's the worst. It's a subjective thing but one thing you can be sure of.... it will get you smashed.
I was lucky enough to be given a bottle of the old state produced polish vodka back in the 90s, think it was about 90% abv and was the finest alcohol i have ever consumed, never tasted anything like it since, like ice cream on the tongue and hellfire in the throat

My sister works with a few Polish people, so I've asked her to add their opinion (whenever she replies on Facebook Messenger, haha).

Edit: Apparently she's not in work today (she does weird rotas) but will report back tomorrow.

Many reviewers are comparing this to Luksusowa Potato Vodka (some prefer it and call it THE Polish vodka) which Amazon also has - £21.13, 70cl from Amazon amazon.co.uk/Luk…KBO
33807020-BeYKl.jpgVodkaphiles has some reviews about this one: vodkaphiles.com/rev…134

33807020.jpg 5, easily! I was always partial to Wyborowa, but the price kept going up on it, where the price of Luksosowa has stayed about the same and it's every bit as good. The only thing I like better is Koskenkorva (anyone else here partial to it?), but I only get that when my friend's wife goes to Finland and nabs a bottle (haven't been able to find it in NJ-US). Also, I think it's a good bit more expensive. Glad to find this sight and know I'm in good company! Cheers...
Reviewer:Gary C.

33807020.jpg I've been a vodka drinker for at least 10 years. Of the high priced imports: Grey Goose, Stoli, Ketel One, Absolute etc., I've found that LUKSOSOWA beats them all by far for taste, fragrance, and smoothness. And distilled from potatoes! Excellent! Too bad they don't have better marketing in the US. I've turned many vodkaphiles and liquor store owners on to Luksosowa.
Reviewer:Larry B

Great Vodka! I was going to swing for a bottle of Chopin or Belvedere but I didn't have adequate funding. I'm glad I didn't. It has a definate "luxorious" taste, as the name would imply. My polish girlfriend raved about it (she's got a bit of Polish Pride when it comes to Vodka). I only gave it a 4 because i'm rather a dilletante when it comes to vodka but it is my liquor of choice and I'm still going to shop around but something tells me i'll be coming back to Luksusowa!

IMO this is a great example of rye grain vodka. I am not a massive fan of potato vodka (or gin) therefore wyborowa would always be my go to vodka when I fancy a some with tonic or in a cocktail.

No. I’m saying this because I’ve tried it many times. But remember. If you want to drink vodka properly you must put into the freezer for at least one hour. Preferably leave it for few:)

At 37.5% it is safe for Britons
£3 a bottle (70cl) in Poland

A Polish lady at work gave me a bottle of Spirytus as a "thank you" for fixing her laptop. She said if I can handle that I must be a "strong man". It evaporates on the tounge and leaves an odd tingling in your throat when drinking straight (not recommended). Guess it would be good as a base for homemade Gin.
