We thought this was a whisky (it used to call itself whisky anyway) but further inspection reveals it to be a 'Thai spirit', which is distilled from around 95% molasses and 5% rice, then flavoured and coloured (thanks to diffordsguide.com for the info). So really, it's closest to a flavoured rum. Best when mixed long with plenty of ice.

very cheap to buy in Thailand which is why many Thais won't drink it. but I love it and have consumed many bottles without ever having a hangover.

I learned about Mekong while deployed there from Okinawa. While in Pattaya I hung out in a small bar and drank the stuff with coke, but loved it straight up. I thought it was the smoothist whiskey I have ever had and still love the stuff. IMO, Its a great and perfect for shots. People usually buy the sizzle, and not the steak. So a local drink dosen;t sizzle like imported whiskey.

Also contains glycerine to boost the alcohol content which leaves you with an almighty hangover.

I bought this stuff in Thailand for about $3.50/ bottle, even the locals hates it. Paying any more is a joke.
