Which distillery does the new make spirit originate from?
Received this gift as a birthday present.
A novel and quirky idea but the proof of the pudding will be in the drinking so these are my initial comments:
Kit arrived without any form of instructions. Had to phone and was told to access the site. Could do with a simple card referencing the web-site.
The "instructions" on the web-site are rather poor eg states that leave in barrel for days or months. It could advise what to expect as time goes on eg the colour changes, the taste, when to sample.
Further feedback in due course, and looking forward to sampling.
received my kit today and filled the cask with port to add a port finish to the whisky. My first thought was that the cask was smaller than I expected, but when I added the port it ended up taking 3 750ml bottles of wine. Almost twice what it claimed! I am going to need more new-make, or perhaps I will blend something to top it off with? I get the impression jura 16 would work great but I'm not sure I want to sacrifice such a fine whisky to a first time experiment...
