I have tried it by putting charred wood sticks right inside the bottle. It was a very educational experience. Some of the notes can be found here http://www.whiskyhead.com/whisky-aging-results.htm ...

There are many blends on my "do not drink" list but few single malts. The single malts that are on the list are from independent bottlers. A rather terrible 8yr Highland Park from Gordon and MacPhail...

Some scotch blends have all single malt and some have a mixture of single malt and grain whisky.

The Glenmorangie sample pack is really interesting. If it is the one I am thinking of you get a full bottle of Glenmorangie Original and four sample minis of cask finished whiskies. Can't go wrong...

Oban 18 is good but it is what I consider a safe whisky. Meaning I think it is a whisky that is meant for a broad audience and will never disappoint. However, it isn't unique and doesn't have a large...

I recently tried aging with dowels inserted right into the bottle and was pleasantly surprised with the results. The dowels were baked at about 360 degrees for three hours and then charred on my...

Lagavulin 16 is known to vary between batches but before you dismiss your newest bottle give it some time to open up. Your last sips from the previous bottle had a lot of oxygen to change or "open...

The square bottle may need time to open up. I have found that a bottle's taste usually improves as the level goes down. It should peak about half way.

You could try decanting some and then seeing...

I am glad things worked out for you.

In my experience, price is related to how good a whisky could be but as a rule should not be the only indicator. Rarity and novelty also play important roles....

Bowmore Legend isn't a bad whisky. It's just not as good Bowmore 12 or the other offerings they have. When I sip it I find myself wishing it was more like it's older brothers.

You could always use...

This is probably a bad idea.

1. You are going to lose a lot of whisky to evaporation.
2. The Proportion of wood to whisky is going to be VERY high compared with a traditional sized barrel and if...

You are right to assume that a higher alcohol content (not watered down) usually means a whisky is more expensive but that is not always the case.

Other factors play a role as well. How old is the...

The only draw back I see is if a person is trying to store a lot of bottles the wide bottom takes up more room. Conversely, the shorter bottles may fit in locations that have a lower shelf height.
