This finishing lark is getting well silly .......
Maybe we should start a campaign for real whisky ......
Second, good for them for focusing on women, the more whisky sales made by every distillery means our favourite drams will SURVIVE. Does anybody want their favourite malt to go the way of Port Ellen for example? Strong sales would have prevented this. Besides women are great fans of scotch and they have an much more better sense of smell than most men AND they can translate those smells into words.
Third, finishes are a tiny fraction of all the malts produced, it's not the end of the world. Thank God somebody has the guts to do a little experimentation.
Fourth, I'd like to try it.
And finally as the demands increase on traditional sources of cask and the prices rise distillers will be forced to look for new types of cask as the Irish are doing by going back to Sicily after a 90 year absence.
