    Re: Whiskey Tree

    Josh, I just want to echo others' sentiments here: this is really, really great work! You have no idea how often I reference your "tree." Thanks!
    "Good" may be subjective, but that doesn't mean it's arbitrary.

    Hey, Josh. Here's something else to work on. Barrel char. I'll start. Wild Turkey uses #4.

    Mind if I butt in Josh?

    Char #3;
    Buffalo Trace
    Tom Moore
    Old Forester
    Heaven Hill
    Woodford Reserve
    Maker's Mark
    George Dickel
    Jack Daniels

    Char #3.5
    Four Roses

    Char #4
    Jim Beam
    Wild Turkey

    As Jimmey Russell said, " We use a heavy char for our Wild Turkey bourbon. It's called 'The Heavy Char'."

    Re: Whiskey Tree

    Oscar, I had also read that Buffalo Trace used a #3 or 3.5 char. However, while watching the BT Oral History with Ronnie Eddins and Nelson Riddle, they mention that Buffalo Trace moved to #4 char. I assume that happened in the last few years.

    Good work Josh, this sort of information is useful to all but especially new members, or those just visiting.

    Re: Whiskey Tree

    Thanks again everybody. I'll try and update this week. Some physical problems are currently limiting my interwebs activities. Hopefully things will shape up later this week.
