And I'm still waiting for that Tequila finish to come out. Are you listening, Glenmorangie?
I'm sure all manner of casks are in circulation around the place, Frodo, and no doubt all sorts of different wines or spirits have been previous occupants. With the exception of unique finishes, or single cask bottlings, this underscores the important need for marrying, etc, prior to bottling, in order to iron out all that variability.
Tom, I believe all the Bowmore port influenced whiskies are finishes and not full maturations in port casks.
(Put it this way.....if it tasted great, everyone would be doing it. The virtues of ex-sherry casks are known, surely someone in the last 100 years has tried full-time port maturation and discovered that it's a dud!)
