Mekong Gold Label Whiskey “The Backpacker Shitshow”.
Sweet caramel notes, more like corn syrup really, definitely a rum more than a whiskey. Has this margarine flavor like on the finish of Khmer coffee. Reminiscent of home brewed root beer, no definitely more like the syrupy sweet of a red bull vodka. The creme soda of liquor?
New sales pitch: “tired of drinking red bull vodkas with the mates all weekend? Try Mekong, you’ll sleep less restlessly in the ditch tonight!”
Tastes delicious with Shcwapps ginger ale and fresh lychee, you barely even notice the booze. We’ll call it a backpacker Shitshow, the drink version of Tui beach, Koh Rong.

Affordability: 10/10 A pint costs about 25 cents US, so ya, pretty cheap.
Cannabis Pairability: 8/10 The sweet caramel will smash you munchie cravings to smithereens.
