Pagoda Brand Shaoxing
Yet another 8 year old Shaoxing wine, from Pagoda Brand. We've been holding this bottle for quite some time now - maybe 3, 4 years? A gift from an uncle, just sitting in the cabinet. Under those stupid cheap corks that the Chinese seem to like using for these wines. See how dark the wine is? That's oxidation happening. Really delicious actually, just a shame that it's a bit damaged. Alcohol really roaring out of control a bit. A dry, intense rice wine, that was kept for a bit too long.
