Default Smoked Whisky

I just saw this article and it looks interesting. These guys are smoking Makers Mark. I'm assuming they are cold smoking it? Anyone else ever try this?

Well I don't know for sure, but being that Whyskey is distilled in the 160 to 180 degree F range, I would that yes they are cold smoking it.

Wonder if you could smoke things like mustard or Ketchup?

I don't understand the purpose in it to begin with. Most good whiskey is aged in oak barrels and it already has a ton of that flavor. Oaked beers are either aged in oak barrels also or fermented with oak chips in the fermenter...

Its a shame distilling is frowned upon by .gov type bodies in the US, i've thought a few times of the neat creations that could be made at home.

I sure don't get it. Although there are significant differences between bourbon, American whiskeys and Scotch, I just don't see why you would feel the need to smoke bourbon. It seems like an attempt to do something just to be able to do it. The great thing about Maker's Mark is that it is clean, light and sweet. Now, I could see someone doing a small batch whiskey with smoked malt, that might have the same benefit as a rauchbier.

I don't believe letting a good spirit sit out in a steam pan in a smoker can be good for it.

If you need more smoke flavor in the cocktail, smoke the cherry instead

Exposing liquor to even a small amount of heat will cause the alcohol to start evaporating. I hope this Manhattan comes at a discount price, because it can't be that strong.
