  • I'd like to know what you guys think if this. A buddy of mine is invested in this product and I'll admit, I'm intrigued. You think something like this will actually work the way they say it does?

    Side note: when he first told me about them he was calling them whiskey sticks which I think is totally a better name. Way less douchey IMO.

  • I like Elements better because it sells to the snobby, dickish market that will buy these.

    On the other hand, as someone who enjoys whiskey, I am definitely going to back this very cool idea. The Acetaldehyde in well-whiskeys or even Jameson (what I of course purchase when mixing) is a significant issue. Love the idea of being able to limit that as much as possible while creating your own unique tastes from your favorite cheap whiskeys!

  • What I would wonder is if it applies to the Glen Levitt or Johnny Walker level of liquors. That would make things a bit more intriguing.

    Was it a part of the experimentation? I only see where they did the experiment on the one bottle. My caveat here is that I did not watch the video. If they only used, say, a set of rye whiskeys for the test...then the different series of whiskeys may not apply. I dont know. Also, would the flavor change if you left the twig in for 48 hours to a smoother variety? Do you have to change out the twig for a better flavor after 24 hours? Have they tried to go to Shark Tank and see what happens there? Just a few questions on my mind. Causing me a headache too...maybe I need a liquid beverage. LOL

  • I'm not a huge whiskey fan, mainly because I can't afford to drink the whiskey I like. I'm not a snob, but I just far prefer to drink a decent tequila rather than a cheap or decent whiskey.

    I think I'm going to pledge it. In regards to Seahawkfan80, Shark Tank is a last resort, yet awesome show. They always want a gigantic cut of your company, lol. If you can fund through Kickstarter, it's literally a million times better of an option.

  • Hey, thats different. I can't stand the taste of whiskey, but maybe this makes it pallatable for me?....Not sure and probably not curious enough to try.

    BTW, whiskey wood is a better name. Although "whiskeydick" is not associated with wood.

    It's weird to think that I hated tequila as a youngin' but now I love it. Probably because I stopped drinking Sauza and Ceurvo.

    My current tequila of choice is Espolon Silver. Cheap, 100% aguave, never has given me a hangover. Best cheap tequila besides Tapatio Blanco.

  • Sonic, have you tried Costco's Kirkland Signature brand of Anejo tequila? I recently did, and was very impressed. I highly recommend picking up a bottle; check it out. The Kirkland Signature Silver tequila was only decent, IMO, but their Anejo blew me away for the price point.

    (Sorry about the hijack, guys.)

  • I've never had it straight, but a friend made margaritas with it, which is not a normal thing for anejo's and it wasn't bad, very smooth.

    It doesn't taste like a good Anejo, but I can hardly complain at that price. Not much of an aftertaste.

    Funny enough after Googling who makes the Costo Anejo, it's the same place that bottles the Agave 99, which is a very decent Anejo.

    I may have to give it another shot, straight.

    I've had one. Once. I think the chemical they use for the "lime" flavoring is a rearranged acetone molecule.

    Nasty stuff. I cannot believe that they still sell that crap.

    I don't think you realize how Kickstarter works. :) If you want a free sample of something, go to a grocery store. Kickstarter is for brave pioneers unafraid to dip their feet in from the beginning...Or something like that; but seriously, free samples are an "existing proven business trying something new" kind of a thing, and that's definitely not a Kickstarter campaign.

  • Kickstarter is for crappy ideas and like 3 or 4 great ones created by people who have no experience in being successful.

    Basically it's a waste of money. But of course, I'm backing this crap.

    So you can't contact the guy, and say hey I like your idea, I've got 2k I'd like to give you but I want to see if the stuff works like you say it will?

    Not talking about a free sample. Talking about knowing the stuff is worth investing in.

    But yea, I have no clue how kickstater works.

    True for many, but let's be realistic here, too. It's a fantastic platform for someone who wants money without giving up any control of a new company. If you have a legitimately good idea, it can be a fantastic platform where you don't get screwed out of ownership of your company by a billionaire entrepreneurs.

    Plus...Chris Roberts used Kickstarter to start Star Citizen.

    Not really, no. Most Kickstarter projects don't have the item "made" yet to even demonstrate. Many are concept ideas and a lot of the funds go toward manufacturing/producing said item.

    Give us an update once you've sampled, and try to do a comparison/taste test against the same thing but untouched, be honest with your feedback, don't let confirmation bias play into it. :)

    Canadian Mist is my favorite dirt cheap mixing whiskey.

    If you can taste a difference using that, then we'll know it's legit.

  • Assuming I get mine in time to do a bottle with it prior to the start of my poker game this Saturday, I plan to do a bit of blind taste testing with some people. I will post results. I'll probably empty about a quarter of the bottle to use as the base/stock comparison and "stick" the rest.

  • Looking forward to the results!

  • R&R/Canadian Mist/Canadian Club are all really about the same price/flavor/quality. If this shit can turn any of those into a real, drinkable whiskey I'll be super impressed.

  • After about 29 hours the whiskey is noticeably smoother. I feel like the flavor profile has changed subtly as well but I'm not doing an A/B test so I won't say anything definitely yet. R&R tends to taste a little fruity to me, that's mellowed out and I feel like I'm getting notes of vanilla and maple, as advertised. I'm no whiskey connoisseur though.

    'Notes' -- do you mean significant flavoring or light hints?

    I'm sure it's not significant.

  • Another 24 hours and the whiskey has taken on a significant smokey flavor, almost like the flavor of slightly overcooked caramel popcorn, or maybe the flavor of slightly over-roasted marshmallow. Whereas yesterday I was uncertain as to the degree of difference in flavor, tonight there is no question. IMO it has improved the drinkability, at least moderately.

    You're forgetting to capitalize "Lord's", Okie. It's more mocking to the religious people that way.
