Into the Wood

Very informative discussion of why oak, which oak and what it does to whiskey / whisky and other distilled spiritis.

Thank you for posting that. Very informative. Especialy enlightening was the fact that "Char (carbon) removes sulphur compounds and immaturity from new spirit." Not having tasted white dog, my only experience with unaged whiskey is Georgia Moon, which I think has a cabbage smell. It all makes sense now.

White Dog does not taste bad....some are better than others, while FR is so good I would buy it right out of the doubler.:bigeyes:
