Still spirits scotch essense

Postby WTDist » Mon Dec 14, 2015 11:40 am

Im seeing my mate one night this week and i have made him 2 bottles for his time in checking my power controller for me.

Im not a scotch drinker so i dont know if it taste good or bad or average but this is what i have made below. i also aged it for a week at 65% first on oak which wont do much considering it was a week.

anyone tried this and thought it was alright?

cheers

have a go at heat distress aging, youll be surprised how easy it is and how much more aging you get over night.

:text-+1: Nuclear aging is awesome and makes a massive difference. Just be sure to air the spirit for a little while after the cycle is complete as it is crazy how much headsy acetone comes off of it!

I use the microwave mate. There is plenty of talk about it on all the forums.
I just 3/4 fill a jar and microwave for about 2mins .... Get it to about 165•f then screw the lid on tight and leave it to cool to room temp. It creates a vacuum and you can literally watch the colour being drawn out of the oak. For the best results repeat this process at least 3 times and you will have the equivalent of 6 or so weeks of natural aging. Just make sure you air the spirit for an hour or so afterwards to allow the headsy smells to dissipate.

If your going to put your gear in a microwave please make sure it's below 40% ABV :pray:
