[quote=“Huang Guang Chen”][quote=“Namahottie”]I stayed on rice wine up to the day I left Taiwan…No joke. Being cheap I stuck with Tunnel 88 from 7-11 mixed with that Ocean spray red juice.
Two glasses(6oz) after work would have me on my butt in an hour. [/quote]
Tunnel 88, but that’s Kaoliang, made from one of the ugliest and foulest tasting grains on the planet. The thing that stops me from drinking that, aside from the head the next day that feels like you were squashed by a bus, is the taste of it in each and every belch, swallow and frightful regurgitation the following day.
Nama, I have a profound new respect for you . . . I think.
Yes kaoliang is something I could never get down, not even a shot. But if you acquire a taste of it, its pretty hard to get tho outside of TAiwan and Kinmen where they make the stuff. I understand its only made in Kinmen , is that true?
My uncle was a tank commander in Kinmen and he said that you can run a tank on the stuff.
