    Chinese firewater

    "I thought it tasted like paint-thinner and felt like a liquid lobotomy," said Michael Pareles, manager at the U.S. Meat Export Federation in Beijing. "However, like many other things in China, I eventually grew to like it."

    Re: Chinese firewater

    I was gifted some Chinese "whiskey" by a post doc a couple of years ago, he said it was a traditional Sorgum whiskey - cracked that bottle in Bardstown and no one who tasted it wanted a second sip. Honestly, the nose was a dead ringer for vomit.

    Chinese firewater

    I can't stand the stuff - there must be a link between NJ & China when it comes to ethics.

    I'd hate to see how they made the rotgut.

    Apparently the Chinese haven't learned the advantages of aging in small barrels.

    Well, lumber is a premium in Asia (China especially). They just don't have vast oak forests (even for the micro shortcut of using small barrels) for that kind of luxury. Does Bamboo make for decent cask material?

    Re: Chinese firewater

    Perhaps aging in a panda's ass might improve it?
