About Flavored Sugarcane Spirit

About Flavored Sugarcane Spirit
Flavored sugarcane spirits are made with a majority of sugarcane as a base and feature a variety of subtle to not so subtle flavorings. A leading example from Thailand is Mekhong, which is distilled from molasses and rice and then blended with a secret recipe of local herbs and spices. With its rich aromas of soy sauce, orange peel, balsamic and tobacco and spicy finish, this is a great mixer for exotic cocktails.

Mekhong "The Spirit of Thailand"
85 points
Copper penny color. Rich aromas of soy sauce, orange peel, balsamic, toffee and mint tobacco with a supple, dry-yet-fruity medium body and a dried fruit, cedar, brown sugar, and peppery spice finish. Interesting; try in adventurous cocktails.
