Laksoy

Photobucket

Laksoy is a liquor commonly found/made in Butuan and other Caraga areas. I happen to pass by a local store selling Butuanon pasalubongs ("presents") at Gaisano mall and saw these prettily packaged bottles of Laksoy. It was a good thing because I planned on making a post about this Butuanon drink and didn't realized there are flavored varieties available in the market.

Laksoy is also known as Nipa wine, or palm liquor. These flavored ones are priced at 150 to 200 pesos. The middle one being the most expensive in the store. I wonder what these taste like. I've tried the pure laksoy and I liked it. Delish. But I better stop because I'll expand on this post tomorrow.

Not to be confused with NAPA wines from California! Beautiful and interesting photo. What does it taste like? Served before, during or after dinner or whenever? Regards from EAGAN daily photo

These are very good-looking wines! I wonder what they taste like? What are they flavoured with?

I've never tried laksoy yet. Next time you come to Manila, bring me a bottle? ;)

this reminds me of my husband who drank tutti frutti flavoured lambanog and got a bad, bad hang-over the next day. so stay with the natural..

hilda-- which do you prefer, the pure or the flavored one? =) On second thought I'll bring both kinds. That is if I remember to. Hihi hopefully di ko makalimutan.

Vlado&Toni--Just smelling lambanog I can already feel the headache coming. hihihi
