Extra Aqua Vitae Nulla Salus

2.28.2006

Scotch so nice, they distilled it twice... twice

Keywords: firewater, usquebaugh-baul, quadruple-distilling, 92%, US Secret Service, chemical weapons.

The writer had fun with this assignment for the Times:

***LINK A LITTLE BETTER NOW - Miguel***

Try the 92 per cent weapons-grade whisky that will take your breath away. Literally

“Two spoonfuls of this last liquor is a sufficient dose; if any man should exceed this, it would presently stop his breath, and endanger his life.”

The strongest whiskey I've had is George T. Stagg, at 72.5% ABV. It's not really made to be sipped before first adding water, but of course I will break that rule on occasion. It's pretty intense but, naturally, no more so than Bacardi 151. Everclear and Diesel are both strong enough to be pretty much undrinkable before dilution (at least by me).

And oh yeah, what Oded said.

Glad to hear they are doing this "just for fun." I look forward to trying it in 10 years.
