Mekhong "Whisky"

by Oliver Klimek on February 5, 2010

A famous spirit drink from Thailand – 35%


My Tasting Notes:

Color: Dark amber
Nose: Very intense and herbal, mostly lovage
Palate: Herbal and slightly bitter but quite smooth
Finish: Non-existant
Overall: The only thing this has in common with whisky is its colour. No surprise, as its is made from molasses, rice and spices. It reminds a bit of a diluted Italian herbal bitter like Ramazotti or Fernet. It might be quite nice on the rocks as an aperitive, but don’t expect proper whisky, if you order one.

Score: 45/100 – Price Tag $$$$$ – Value for your Money $$$$$
