    Re: The Fake Whiskey Challenge

    I was trying to think of catchy names that would hint "prunes" but not say it.

    I don't drink to excess. But I'll drink to most anything else.

    Re: The Fake Whiskey Challenge

    Test 2 is now officially a failure.

    In a blind taste test, two testees (not testes) indicated that Evan Williams was bourbon and the other stuff was darn good barrel aged, Rum!!!!

    Darn it. I feel like the scientist looking to create a filet of flounder, crossed a flounder with a jellyfish and came up with a bony jellyfish

    Test 3 will now commence.

    It's not as easy as it seems.

    Re: The Fake Whiskey Challenge

    My first attempt is under way:
    • 2oz Vodka
    • 1 drop imitation vanilla
    • 2 small (or one large) drip light pancake syrup
    • 5 uncrushed black pepper corns.
    • fresh wood shavings
    • toasted wood shavings
    • charred wood shavings
    The initial results are good, but the barrel/smoke/char flavor is notably off; it is more campfire than bourbon barrel.


    On another note, my imitation scotch is indistinguishable from the real thing: 2 sweaty work socks (if you work with cattle the taste is much more authentic); half an ashtray of cigarette butts; 1 cup of mulch. Let it sit in a bath of vodka for a week and you are golden.

    Hope is subversive, for it limits the grandiose pretensions of the present by calling into existence the possibility of something better.

    Re: The Fake Whiskey Challenge

    I got the same thing in my preliminary test.
    Charred wood gives a wet fire smell/taste.
    Heavily toasted gives a better smokiness without that wet burnt newspaper quality.

    I'm going to grate some barrel char off a stave on this next round.
    This is used cooperage.

    Ben you forgot the eyedropper of iodine for the scotch.
