The stuff makes me sick. Just one shot and I feel sick to my stomach, with bad nausea. I bought if from a Bevmo store near my pad, and man that crap tastes horrible and is like instant hangover, without any pleasureable effects prior to. Strega = poop.gif

Good to know, I've eyed it before thinking it might be something worth trying at some point. Luckily, you tried it before I did harhar.gif

Another liquor to avoid is a Chinese Sorghum whiskey by the name of Wu Liang Yi. It smells just like horse shit and probably tastes like horse shit would too. I gagged and couldn't finish the glass.

I've had Strega, and you speak the truth.

I have a few pottery bottles of 19th centuryChinese "Tiger" whiskey decorating the apartment.

Luckily, they're empty, and were that way when I bought them. poop.gif

I've had that Chinese poison - probably the nastiest alcohol I've ever tried to choke down. God, that is some awful stuff. The brand I tried was "Old Awamori". I suspect Awamori was some Tang dynasty general killed on a battlefield in Okinawa and shipped to the mainland in a barrel of that stuff to rest with his ancestors - at least it tasted that way.

I keep a bottle on hand as a cruel reminder of what liquor could be . . .

Better than KOSG.

or so we assume...
Provenance
There's always Vietnamese vodka which smells remarkably close to rubbing alcohol. Actually, it smells axactly like rubbing alcohol. And there's the rub.

I wouldn't drink it because of the name. Sounds too much like smegma.
Apparently tastes pretty close to the same as well.

"Apparently". Nice cover. harhar.gif

I do not wish to meet the person who's actually done that particular side-by-side flavor comparison.
