Re: scotch flavor
- I recently made some scotch from an old batch of a mates beer. Not
sure what it was (dark colour and tasted terrible) But on tasting,
some say they could detect a peatiness about it. Certainly tasted
good, and is a testament to the power of oaking- the original product
was terrible! Far better than anything i have made with the Whisky
Anyone have any thoughts on where the peatiness came from? could it
have something to do with the hops, and if so, could it be reliably
Will have to make another batch of scotch, from unhopped malt (canned)
and see what happens i think. Shame it took 3 months to age- but then
again it tasted like a 10 year old!
