    Re: Bourbon lingo for Newbies...

    nice work !!!

    Here are a few more terms from the web (found on Scotch sites):

    Angle's Share is the part of alcohol that evaporates from the cask during Maturation . The Whisky loses about 2% Vol. alcohol a year.


    Coffey Still is also called Patent Still and allows a continiously destillation. It is used to produce Grain Whisky and also industriell alcohol. It's very clean, but less aromative than alcohol destilled in a Pot Still.

    Pot Still: It looks like a big onion and is used for the destillation of Malt Whisky
