    We shouldn't forget the most important one, perhaps - a good palate.

    No industrial vatting for me, I just use a 25ml graduated pipette. No need for funnels or any other equipment. Well, a distilled water bottle for clean-up.

    Re: Vatting Tools

    An area I'm already looking into acquiring a few overpriced 375 bottles and tools for vatting. Being a newb only a month into my love of whiskey, I'm sure I'll have many more bottles in the future that turned out like the disappointment that Devils Cut did for me. I don't think anything will make me Enjoy that pour...just below average. I look forward to trying this in the future with likes instead of just letdowns.
