Can someone tell me why this wine tastes salty?

I'm quite serious. This Shaoxing wine tastes salty. I just don't get it.

Sorry, was hosed from work tonight, will post tomorrow.


  1. It's a cooking wine as it's said on the label. We Chinese use it to enhance dishes. You are not supposed to drink it like regular wines.

    1. Whoops, that's why I have such a terrible hangover. :P

      I understand you use it to cook. I meant, that when I cook with it, it seems to add a salty flavor to dishes. It's very unexpected for a cooking wine or cooking alcohol.
