Watch a Vodka Expert Taste Test Bottom-Shelf Vodka

Spirits expert for Playboy, Jason Horn, sits down to give a bunch of bottom-shelf vodkas a taste test. Watch, as he tries a number of brands, all selling for under $12 -- including Pinnacle, Popov, UV, Smirnoff and Smedka.

In the end, Horn finds that cheap vodkas are as good as the pricey brands. He says vodkas as essentially marketing and image.
