What are you drinking?
Hi Carlp, it's all good! The scotch was very smooth! The chinese white spirits are all pretty similar in flavour (very different to scotch or other western spirits). They do have subtle differences, the moutai is probably regarded as the best, though the Wuliangye is also very good. Just searching, and in Aus the wu lian gye is priced at around $250 per bottle and the Moutai at around $400 per bottle

The beers with the exception of the Tsing Tao IPA are all very light and refreshing. The IPA has a very strong flavour (which I like, but a lot of people would not).

I don't know what the 7th picture is. I thought I was going to be having a break from the alcohol consumption, we were eating in a restaurant with my wifes friend and I actually had a soy milk, thought I'd give the liver a rest, and a guy at the next table recognised my wifes friend (apparently he was the head guy for the local football fan club) he comes over, plonks the bottle down on the table (I thought so I could take a picture) goes off, comes back with a rather large glass and fills it half way and toasts me! After a bit I decided to get up and go toast him, and timing was good because just as I arrived the whole table was doing a toast, so I joined in when we were leaving I still had a good inch in the bottom of my glass so I went back for one more toast and did gun bei (bascially bottoms up, drink the lot). They were most impressed

The blue bottle came in a large box with a picture of a rooster on it. I unfortunately didn't get a picture of that. I think it was disposed of before I got a chance. It was at a dinner thrown by one of my wifes cousins. It's a 2.5L bottle!!! They tried to get me drunk, I think I had at least 300mL of it. I believe it was the precursor to Moutai. That dinner was huge. I'll post a picture of the dining room.

Of the spirits here, most would be too expensive for me to consider buying myself. I was very fortunate to have had the opportunity to partake in so many extravagant dinners!

The Scotch was at my wifes cousins whiskey bar, quite the selection available (I just asked for his recommendation)!!

Tony.

A bit of a cut'n'paste here, but it fits good here in this nice thread.

Cheers guys!
I'm toasting you all with my homebrewed half pilsner, quart sour ale and quart bayer, with a little bit of maple syrup thrown in for good measure.

I'll go fill up another beer... And take a picture of it!
Very happy with my primitive tap system., much easier than all those bottles!
