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.
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.
This is spicy and nicey
