    Re: Koval Offerings???

    I tasted through some of their offerings including the bourbon at the Indie Spirits Expo last week. As to impressions I will just politely say they had a couple of very personable and quite attractive woman working their booth.

    Koval is kinda interesting. As I recall from one of their tastings the light and dark don't tell you much about the age of the whiskey. Has more to do with the char. Light whiskey is in a "toasted" barrel while the dark whiskey is in a more standard charred barrel. I think these are also aged in smaller barrels but don't know that for sure.

    I think of them all the spelt was the most interesting to me. Can't recall if it was the light or dark.

    I'm a fan off their offerings. Dark oat being my favorite of their line

    The place Gary and I have been going to for spirits/beer tastings on Monday nights, will be serving offerings from Koval next Monday. Maybe those same two gals will be there.

    Finding them really unsuitable for cooking or cleaning, I will happily offer mine up to anyone.

    I got a bottle of the Oat for being a groomsmen.... its decent but nothing to write home about.

    I'd take $50 it cost and go grab 2x ETL.

    Drunk kudzu! So it just grows around and around before it falls down on the ground and lies still for a while. Sometimes yellow and green flowers appear at the top of it. But what happens if a goat meets drunk kudzu?

    Re: Koval Offerings???

    I went to the Koval tasting with Gary tonight. Truth be told, I was expecting the worst. I was actually a little surprised, in a good way. Nothing super great to say, but at the same time, nothing really bad to say either. All their offerings were different and interesting. Drinkable, and not offensive. Not too bad at all.
