Got me of of these guys:http://www.binnys.com/spirits/Age_Your_ ... 97952.html
Never had it before, never aged anything so have no experience with it.
For the first batch i'll go with a regular "per instructions" set up: white dog + some water and wait. Nothing fancy.
1. Since it's a small barrel (2Liter) what would be the max amount of time you'd keep white dog in there? I usually love the richness of older whiskey and always preffer 10+ years over 4-8 years (eagle rare 10 and EC12 are my favourites) but def don't wanna overdoit and keep it there till it goes bad. With 2 Liter sized barrels it's only a matter of a few months so.....
2. What would you recomend for microclimates? Once it gets colder out I can keep it outside overnight everynight and bring it back to a heated home when sun it up ifit'll help with anyhing. Basically what I'm asking here is what effect exactly each change of temperature/time brings? I'll baby this thins as much as I need to, just need to know what I gatta do here.
For my next batches I'll experiment some with adding already made whisleky, some flavour additives to age together with white dogs and/or other whiskeys.... What would you recomend here?
