Play • 1 hr 2 min

On this episode we are taking a look white whiskey and specifically how it compares to the brown barrel aged stuff. You may know that whiskey does start its days as a clear spirit and it is the barrel that imparts the caramel color we all know and love. But what does that early spirit taste like? And why are we seeing a resurgence in its popularity? Imagine being able to taste the base spirit and the spirit after the aging process. Well in fact that’s exactly what we got to do on this episode with Eric Boujo who helped found Kin Whiskey.
