Re: making scotch with peat smoked malt
- My scots whiskey is the best brew yet. Yes, a small amount of peat
smoked barley is the key. And there is no reason to run more than once
in the old pot still as long as you are not greedy and make sure to
take out plenty of heads and tails. The flavor lingers, no problem.
and in a simple pot still you should end up with the heart of your run
ranging from 60-70% I dilute down to 50 and hope for 45% before
drinking. Love your pot still, It was good enough for George
