    Absinthe has that effect, I'm told.

    Re: Who Likes White Dog?

    My thought exactly. I think it's the drug "Charlie Sheen" under another name. New word for getting high: "sheening."

    I will give you that for sure... Absinthe drinkers are rabid.
    Hope is subversive, for it limits the grandiose pretensions of the present by calling into existence the possibility of something better.

    Re: Who Likes White Dog?

    Chuck's Assertion that whiskeys (grain based liquors) do need some wood aging is sound.
    Sugar cane, agave, potato, grape yadda yadda based liquors stand on their own or are consumed for effect. If flavor, complexity, smoothness, aroma are positive attributes of whiskey, a lot of that comes from the wood. So I think Chuck's point is that someone in the micro distilling world should listen. Either call all your short aged or unaged products Mixers or start maturing your product in wood.

    Re: Who Likes White Dog?

    I like wood. Some people talk about over-aged, but I've never experienced that. I'm gullible and fall for many of the "finished in something new wood" type products. I'm one of the few that fanatically enjoy the Woodford maple.

    With that said, white dog whiskey has a lot to offer. It's not because I sipped white dog from a mountain jug 45 years ago that sways my opinion, it's because I've found some unusual white dog and underaged whiskeys that are worth attention. One unusual product (rarely available outside of Virginia) is Catoctin Creek Rye white dog which is smoother than Blantons or Patron Blanco and definitely in the same league.

    to further drive home the point - in the nutty guy topic (see:
    http://www.straightbourbon.com/forum...ight=nutty+guy )
    I mentioned that it inspired me to do a wood flavor taste test which included the list below. One thing that came of it was the Catoctin Creek super impressed folks, one of which managed a liquor store and toured distilleries for vacation. Afterwards, one participant ONLY bought a Catoctin Creek from the list. Here's the list from that night per my post "BT white dog, catoctin creek mosby, pappy 20, WT tradition 14yo, saz 18, stagg, wlw, crown XR, bowman single barrel, woodford seasoned oak, woodford maple, yamazaki 12yo, yamazaki 18yo, glenmorangie 18yo, EC 18 yo, glenlivet nadurra, glenlivet french oak, and maybe a couple others I don't remember."

    and no, I do not work for Catoctin nor ever met those folks.

    I drink a fair amount of white dog, and new make from Scotland, yet I owe none currently. I see that changing for me this year.

    I liked the white dog I sampled on the Four Roses tour. I'd buy it were it available.

    Cheers!

    I'm thinking Jack Nicholson as Charlie Sheen wintering in a Colorado resort that's haunted with the ghosts of ex-porn stars.
