Quoting the below text,
"42 | Chemistry World | December 2008
Age is everything
"The Act states that whisky is not
Scotch whisky until it has been
matured for at least three years.
And that it must be matured in
Scotland. `This isn't the industry
being protectionist,' says Eaton. `It's
down to the climate it's cold and
damp, which affects maturation. In
the US, the ethanol concentration in
the cask goes up because it's hot and
dry, here it goes down.""
I got that quote from that last whisky pdf post.
Arrhmmm, sorry about my prevous muck ups with the pdf links, I had
too many links at the bottom of my net veiwer, please forgive.
