We’re moving… (physical address only)

We’re not moving our online location. This URL is still the best place to find Bodacious Booze’s liquid insights. However I, personally, am moving to a new house. Which means our bar has been sealed tight, bubble wrapped and boxed up.

I won’t be doing any tastings until the next deadline, Nov. 4. So, I thought it best to leave you with an article written by a man who is much more knowledgeable about whiskey than myself. In fact, I’m not sure there’s a man alive that who knows more about American Bourbon production and history across the entire spectrum of product offerings than Chuck Cowdery.

In this post he talks about how to properly store your whiskey so that it can be enjoyed for years… If you can keep it around that long, that is. This is a good segue from our last post about vatting whisky. If you’re going to do it, make sure you store them properly!

At the bottom, in the comments, you can see how worried I was about some of my personally crafted specialties created over the years.

Vatting is perfect for getting rid of that last little ‘swaller’ of whiskey you have at the bottom of the bottle. By combining the last few ounces to a larger volume of spirit, you are able to keep it from going ‘bad.’ You also prevent the embarrassment of having a pitiful amount in the bottom of one of the bottles on your bar. Plus, the blended whisky you create is truly one-of-a-kind and ever-evolving – a perfect conversation starter!

Have a happy Halloween and be sure to catch the next post, which will wax even more sentimental about Johnnie Walker® Green Label Blended Scotch Whisky.
