Kweichow Moutai Prince

Kweichow Moutai is the king of the baijiu world, and you’ll see that right away in the price. There are very high-end bottles, and it’s the brand of choice for gifting… and maybe also grifting.

Prince is a mid-level offering, and it’s a really fun version of the Sauce Aroma category with a great bold flavor. The initial nose combines the sour tang of low-quality semi-sweet chocolate chips and a finish that’s reminiscent of really high-end cocoa powder.

Buy it: I found it at China Place Liquor City in Chicago. But don’t mind that: Kweichow Moutai is probably the most widely-available baijiu brands – pretty much anywhere in the US that carries baijiu will have this.

    nose: less alcohol, more impurities like other cheap liquor
    palate: lots of alcohol, tastes like cheap liquor from college
    finish: burns, long aftertaste
    overall: takes me back to the days of drinking on the cheap.

    Strange smell, like a cross between some sort of weak industrial fluid with soy sauce and Brussels sprouts. Tastes very savoury like fermented black beans. Reminds me of the one time I drank some 女兒紅 (huangjiu, completely different category of spirits), except nowhere near as salty. Strength wise it’s very mild, but still stronger than Joyouth. There was chocolatey taste with the first few sips that drowns out later.
