  • This, like all of the flora and fauna range, is excellent. If you're a sherry cask fan you can't go wrong, extremely well balanced, touch of spice and very subtle smoke on the finish. Also a cracking example of an alternative for Japanese whisky fans as you can pick up a bottle for under £60.

  • I've gone bourbon blind! You probably just have cooler Sainos than me.

  • Aren't Hudson the ones who play music to their whiskey to "sonically age" it?

  • It said something about subwoofers and sonic agitation in the blurb somewhere, so yeah, probs.

  • I’ve been to a vineyard where they play Gregorian chanting to the casks

  • I wonder what particular flavours such mystical staves might impart.

  • Did he row a boat with enough oak in it to build 10 casks for 3000 miles?

  • I was reading about bourbon that is bottled with wooden sticks in the bottle.
    Seems gimmicky

    Oak&Eden but I can't seem to find it in the UK

  • A lot of "oak aged" stuff isn't aged in barrels, it just has bags of oak chips dunked into a massive vat.
    Definitely for wine, probably some whisky too.

  • Compass box got in trouble for this a while back- addition of internal staves into a cask no longer renders it a cask and so cannot be called Scotch.

  • I didn't know that but it doesn't surprise me. I come from wine area so I've seen a lot of their tricks and you just know they're doing it with other drinks.

  • This years Ardbeg committee release is on sale today at 10am for anyone interested. I won't be getting this years one myself sadly.

  • Getting stuck into a bottle of Woodford Rye, and it is good.

    Happy Friday folks, cheers!

  • Sounds nice. Get involved.

  • Sazerac Rye is on offer in Waitrose, £35 rather than £45.
