      Yea Rob, they were pretty hush hush when it came to flavouring up.
      Sure, we had the token "exotic spices" bit, but the aged "whiskey" was
      pretty pale. I'd guess the corn distillate was taken off above
      finishing abv (perhaps the usual 60ish %). That does still leave plenty
      of corn flavour. Add to that (presumably untoasted) oak and then
      caramel derived from malt, and bob's your uncle! (oh, no, you're bob!)

      p.s. on a 1000 litre mash at ca 1050 with ambient temp at 20 decG the
      temperature of the fermentation can rise 15 degrees in less than 10
      hours. The temp rise can be really nice in winter when a certain
      brewery was unheated. 5 minute break to hug the fermenters!!
