Oyster sauce preference?

My brand of oyster sauce has become pretty pricey over the years. What brand do you like?

Although it's as ubiquitous these days as Kikkoman soy sauce, I like and use the Lee Kum Kee brand. There was a brand I liked better for being a little less salty and a little more wine-y that I used to get when I lived near a large Vietnamese community, but where I live now LKK is what's available, and it's fine.

I use two of the Lee Kum Kee brands. The cheaper, their Panda Brand (with a red label), I buy in the large bottle for use in most cooking situations. For dipping sauces and other cases where I want the best oyster sauce flavor, I use their more expensive Premium Oyster Sauce (which has a different picture on the label).

They are both very good products.

I get the same as Paul mentions. Just checked the premium bottle (just picked up a new bottle last week), and it has a blue label with a boy and woman in the picture.
