This was a new descriptive phrase for me, so...I wonder if she comes with the obligatory Beam funk?
I had some years ago that I believe they just poured a little food coloring into. Rough stuff.The problem with that is, short of Vodka, all bourbons, whiskey, and Irish whiskey is infused. That’s what the barrel is for. As well as the staves being used now.
I may know someone that has a friend's uncle that makes shine.My Grandad was a whiskey maker from way back in AR. In fact, his Dad kicked him out of the house at 11yrs old for being a spotter for men that made it and he refused to stop because the paid him well. He used to take a stick of burned oak and stick it in the jugs to give it a little tint sometimes.
When me and my brother were teenagers we used to sneak drinks of his moon shine so he started putting a pencil mark on the bottles at the liquid level. We discovered how he knew it so then we would fill the jug back up to the pencil mark with water when we were finished.
One day he went into the kitchen and poured himself a glass and then sat down in the living room and took a sip. He said, "You know I must have did something wrong with that last batch. The longer it sits on that shelf the weaker it gets", while he was staring directly at me with those rattlesnake eyes of his.
I knew the water and pencil mark jig was up. Those old guys just had a way with words.
