Went to Moas good selection tried a couple around $5-7 a nip not bad , you get water and ice to addto your liking, good service helpful but not pushy, you can buy your favorite bottle to keep behind the bar at 6-7 100% markup , not a great deal imo.
What bar doesn't have a can of coke, and no offers to get one, you can have a sprite if you like only $2:50
The entrance to mao's I don't know looks like some hotel being renovated not invited at all in fact nearly didn't go in , but the iron stairs to the whisky was calling
Decided better buy whisky by the bottle so off to local

Two very nice ones
Then this I've had to buy a bottle of drambuie to make it taste ok

I'm nearly giving up research and going to repeat my yummy one's

Preferred by some of the world’s most frugal whisky connoisseurs, this Cambodian specialty starts off with an eye watering burn, leading to a finish that becomes smoother with each consecutive drink.

You seem to know your thinner-related stuff...
In marketing terms, sometimes the simpler name the better. Probably couldn't a better one after a few shots of this anyway....

It’s literally cheaper than mouthwash or gasoline. It should sell itself.

I see it is near the baby's bottle. Adding a dash helps to get him off to sleep?

Used to drink it all the time, at $9 a case of 12, it's good drinking with plenty of coke at only 20% in this heat, but last few months have gone a bit upmarket in my whisky prices and would never go back to it.
There's another one with ginsing in it , after half bottle it keeps you up if you know what I mean.

Cognac only, no cheap stuff. I don't really believe in whisky or those other barbaric throat-burning solvents.
