Excellent! Looks like a great way to celebrate Repeal Day and I'm looking forward to tasting and watching the judging of the PFJ Challenge entries.

Merc and I are coming down for this event and I've even convinced my PLOWED partner in maltcrime, Slur Dave of the Local Barley, to come along for his first Julio's whisk(e)y gathering. ...if you thing I'm obsessive-compulsive and are amused by this sort of derangement, you're in for a real treat here!

Hope to see y'all there!

slainte! Tim

Now that I have recovered, (mind, body and soul), from Saturday’s judging and snowy ride home, here are the official results!

1st Place, the winner of the First Annual Pussyfoot Johnson’s Folly Whisk(e)y Challenge Invitational is:
Andrew Hobgood!
Andrew gets his name on the Pussyfoot Johnson Memorial Jug, a Loch & K(e)y barrel trophy to take home, two VIP tickets to The Whisky Life cruise in Boston (May,2010) and a $50 gift certificate To Julio’s Liquors!

2nd Place goes to Dave Johnson who gets two tickets to The Whisky Life cruise in Boston (May,2010)

3rd Place goes to Brian Blackwell who gets a 5liter empty barrel from Wasmund’s

And finally,
The K9 award goes John Gill (wear that dog tag proud!) who gets one ticket to The Whisky Life cruise in Boston (May,2010) so, he may taste what whisk(e)y is suppose to taste like! Wink

I would like to thank everyone who participated in the Whisk(e)y Challenge!
I think everyone had fun with it and learned a little along the way.
Would all the entrants please post what they did to the whisk(e)y?
All the entries, (except Johnny Gills), were interesting and many were innovative.

Thanks to our guest Judges, Professor Rick Wasmund and Professor Jeff Karlovitch.

To Everyone: GOOD LUCK NEXT YEAR! (rye?)

Congrats Andrew Exclamation Exclamation Exclamation Have any left that the rest of us could taste Question

I'm happy that I wasn't the K9 award winner. Whew! But there's always next year. As requested, here's my recipe in bottle number 7001:

Wasmunds Single Malt began aging in the barrel 7/9.
Emptied the barrel on 8/24 for a total of 46 days of aging.

I did not season the barrel before adding the single malt. I did however add roughly a cup (what was left in the bottle) of Knob Creek bourbon at the same time I added the single malt to the barrel.

On 9/5 I adulterated my whiskey further by filling a mason jar with the following:
dried sliced apples (used 2/3 container)
2 almonds
3 walnuts
2 pecans
1/4 tsp nutmeg
3 cloves
added Wasmund's Single Malt to fill container to the top.
I then bottled the blind pig on 9/26/09 for a total of 21 infusion days
Filtered 12 times when putting into the pig

The Idea was to come up with something holiday like for this time of year. Tasted like a weird mulled cider whiskey combo. I also didn't realize until the last minute that the nuts in the ingredients above classified as "something that could kill someone." Yikes Shocked Luckily I was able to mark my container before anyone sampled Exclamation

Indeed, I do have some remaining that I can bring to a Whisk(e)y Wednesday to share.

I'm already looking forward to the next one! A rye contest would be great, the Wasmund's rye spirit was actually rather enjoyable when we tried it back in August.

Andrew ,

That would be brilliant, I am sure we would all like to taste and hear about your "Hooch" and how it was made and matured.

See you Wednesday...

I think John should wear the dog tag proudly. I tried a sample and was not able to get through it. I don't believe I've ever had the Pleasure(?) of saying that about a whisky before.

It was a terrific night and the entries I tasted were really quite good.

How about scheduling a Whisky Wednesday where folks bring in their concoctions, tell folks what they did and have us taste them together. I know there are some excellent stories lurking out there.

I'd come down for this event. Only Wed we can't make it down for sure is Wed Jan 21 when we'll be out of town. Maybe schedule it out after that to give folks plenty of time to get it in their schedules and clear the holiday madness?

Thanks again Ryan, The selection of commercial drams was astonishing - really liked the new unchillfiltered 15 yo cask strength Glenfiddich and it was a treat to try the 17 yo Stitzel Weller (Presidential Reserve) again. All the drams were great - didn't get around to trying the Tyconnell lineup though - talking again too much as ususal... Shocked

slainte! DrE

I actually bought two entries but did not bother to submit them. The problem I had was the both came out of the barrel with a nose having hints of new make spirit but the flavor too heavy of wood.

I was to say the least disappointed.

Barrel number one was filled with Wild Turkey 101 to condition it.
Barrel number two was filled with a Ruby port.

Both barrels had their contents in it for one month and then were drained and filled with the single malt.

Gotta figure out how to fix that problem next time around.

Jim
