As you can see the first one of the Charbay line I popped open was the "S" hop whiskey. It's crazy.

Joe

Charbay make great stuff! How's their Whiskey - Release III?

Camper English

Just tasted it: Intense. Still has that sticky resin/weed thing going, not even tempered by wood all that much.

Joe

Sounds good! Does the additional '8 years in neutral vessels' change the spirit much? I've tried a few old bottles recently that have been tempered by the glass, does it have a similar effect?

Camper English

It shouldn't change much at all unless there is a lot of oxygen in with the spirit. I doubt they'd do that as that tends to flatten out flavor.
