What did you do, Sangsom?

Recommended Posts

I enjoy my weekend imbibition of Sangsom and diet cola. It has sustained me through the COVID BS.

Today, I switched over from my regular Sangsom ( LHS ) to "superior" Sangsom, aged 5 years, a prize garnered from a golf event.

While I don't want to appear ungrateful, the "superior" stuff tastes like it has been aged for 5 years with the jockstraps of 100 footballers. I hasten to add I have no direct experience of this taste, just the smell of numerous locker rooms in my younger days.

What did you do, Sangsom? Did you farm out production of this bottling to an Issan Lao Khao distillery? Are you exporting it to Trump troglodytes? No wonder they are revolting.

Yeah mate, I enjoy a good drink and I can understand if you are out somewhere and that is all that is available. Hell, I would drink it too. As far as my experience with it, I prefer dark beers but I'm on Budweiser at the moment as Tesco and Big C have it.

 

I'd say Sang Som is sweet with the feeling of it nor being clean. Gets the job done well though! Cheers!

 

Hell they should riot given how much the government doesn't work for the people...

Sangsom = for proofs

 

Lao Khao = for men ( until premature death )

 

No self respecting rural peasant would drink Sang Som unless it was given away free with a bottle of coke.

 

I have just finish a bottle of small Lao Khao and bitter lemon and am about to tackle wifey with back turned under the sheets.

 

Who will benefit from this remains to be seen.

Kool Aid and Sangsom. 
Worth a try. It can go on my top shelf.

I like the 5 year, a more robust taste and flavor than the regular which I suspect is just alcohol with a bit of flavor added. But have stopped drinking this stuff as it will mess up your stomach over time. Do not be a cheap charlie it only cost 100 percent more to go first class

There is a nice rum at Makro from Charles House at only 195.-(sugar cane spirit) and it taste almost like Havana Club.  Cheers.

Thai  rum does not improve with age.

it's not like whisky. :thumbsup:

 

 

The "5 Year" bit is the length of time that the rum was (supposedly) matured in a cask before being bottled and not the time from when it was bottled, if I am not mistaken.

Ah.  COVID is "BS", but a bottle of whiskey is real?

 

Alcoholism really eats up your brain, doesn't it kids? 🤭

Tesco have a great deal, Morgan’s Spiced 399 a bottle. Not as good as the dark but great value nevertheless.

I'm forced to be a Cheap Charlie nowadays, but used to love spiced rum.

Thanks I never thought to try it. I get through a bottle of Sangsom a week, so it'll be nice to have a change!

Enjoy the odd Sangsom but will not drink that Lao Khao which rots your liver .

Someone drinking Bude", that surprises me, if ever there was a "beer that deserved the label

<deleted> water, that would have to be it

I buy the standard Sangsom by the case and enjoy it, price and quality OK for me, I prefer it to 100pipers and Red label, maybe influenced by drinking it daily for last ten years, a bottle lasts 2/3 days, I drink with plain water and ice

This was during the first big lockdown back in March. We had escaped to the folks' place up north. Ah, nothing like that fine, Scottish quality, brought to me by the Pied Pipers. I'd prefer Jameson or Jack, but I'm just a teacher.

 

When we head out to the farm the bros-in-law try getting me to do a few shots of Lao Khao. It can be described as thus:

1) Hits you like paint thinner.

2) Fruity aftertaste. Ah, maybe this ain't so bad. But then...

3) Terrible headache within seconds.

No, you are not mistaken. As I said in the OP, I think the spirit in this bottle was matured in something else.

.... and still choose/can only afford Sangsom?

I can afford Johnny Walker, I just like the taste of Sangsom. Not the "5 year" stuff, obviously.

A good Scotch is wasted on me, I once horrified a Scottish millionaire by saying I liked whisky with Coke. He owned one of the Scotch whisky distilleries in Edinburgh. When I asked him his opinion of Glenfiddich as a whisky, he said it was a reasonable blend, more a good marketing exercise.
