Not sure what subby is getting at, but what China is trying to kill in Hong Kong is democracy, not capitalism.

For that price I hope it comes with a bottle of Coke to mix it with.

Is the rare booze market kind of like the art market, and just another way to launder money?  I guess I should get on google and answer my own question...

100% yes to that, plus there is puh-lenty of forgery/counterfeiting going on, similar to the art.

Apparently their is quite market for empty whiskey bottles so they can be refilled with cheap whiskey and sold for a lot.

Nonsense, I've been assured by Farkers that China is a runaway capitalist state.

I'm fairly certain about two things here.

1) Anyone who is actually a serious "collector" of this stuff is a pretentious tool. Who the hell buys Scotch to NOT drink it?

2) That Scotch is probably terrible. Oldest I've had is 30 years and all you taste is cask.


More than a finger or two gives me a headache and makes me regret my poor life choices the next day. I still have that 30 year because the only time I drink it is when I'm drunk enough on better, "cheaper" Scotch to think it's a good idea to hit it. The other stuff doesn't give me the hangover on it's own.

The 30 year is the only booze I've found in my 47 years of life that gives me a hangover. I'm impervious otherwise as far as I know. I've been falling down sloppy drunk and woke up happy and smiling after sleeping it off.

My thoughts about subby is that they aren't aware that Capitalism is what Communism survives on.   It's a "pay no attention to the man behind the curtain" thing with the Chinese Communist leadership.

Has someone at Fark imbibed a wee bit too much today? I'm seeing 9 comments in this thread, 3 of which concern Hong Kong Capitalism, the rest about (possibly counterfeit) whiskey...
