Q: Anyone ever tried the chinese whisky that looks like Jack Daniels?

Is it safe to drink?  The price seems pretty good, but I have never tried it.  Hoping to get an experienced opinion.

Haven't tried it. It is most likely not worth it. 

 

I've come to the conclusion that the only thing that is done well in China, in terms of alcohol, is beers and rice wine. Sure the beers might not be as inspirational as e.g. Belgium beers, and some rice wine is more like industrial waste than a liquid you would want inside your body. Yet, on a hot day, a cool Tsingtao does the trick, and a 50% rice wine spiced with dates or other commonly used flavors can also be a nice drink. 

For whiskey, I happen to know the count of Chinese manufacturers is ZERO. So what you see in that bottle isn't whiskey. At best it is a vodka like pure alcohol with some coloring and flavors added.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
