Week 4 of Age Your Own Whiskey — a big, boozy group project that meets on the Internet — is behind us.
If you're playing along at home, you might be wondering: How many more weeks until the whiskey is ready? We're thinking that you'll see good color and flavor around Week 5, so you are in the home stretch! But, you can go longer, stop early, taste along the way .... it's #whiskeymyway, after all, so it's completely up to you.
Age Your Own Whiskey works like this: a bunch of you dropped an oak stave into a bottle of our unaged White Oak Whiskey on the day after Christmas. Once a week, you post a photo of the bottle on social media and tag it #whiskeymyway so that we can all see each other's progress.
Just starting to age yours now? You're not too late - start posting!
Here's how some of your #whiskeymyway bottles are looking after Week 4:
Snap your Week 5 photo this Saturday, Jan. 30, post it and tag it #whiskeymyway. And let everyone know...
- Have you tasted it? What's the flavor like so far?
- Are you changing conditions at all? (Varying the temperature? Agitating it? Adding another stave?)
- How's the color?
We'll post another roundup next week!
