Liqour/Whiskey/Bourbon Master Thread
« on: July 17, 2008, 02:48:20 AM »
im not talking about the sherry casks problem (from looking in the shulchan aruch IMO its not a problem) the problem is that till 2000 it was owned by the bronfman fam and therefore be chometz shovar aleho es hapesach if they did not sell their cometz. i emailed the ou and they say that no chametz was sold to them (i had heard rumors that it was sold to the ou so i was just checking)

anyone have any input on this?

According to the CRC (Chicago Rabbinical Council) Glenlivet is kosher:

http://www.crcweb.org/kosher/consumer/liq.%20list%20r.pdf

It lists Gelnlivet 12, 15, 16 (Nadura), 18, and 21.

thanks for the link to the crc i gave them a call and they said that this had been looked in to before and the bottom line is that its fine (they said they don't remember why but it was a logical reason)

Interesting that they note that Macallen Scotch and Balvanie 12 year doublewood Scotch
is NOT recommended. as far as i always knew that Macallen was Kosher.

Thanx for making me aware of this.

Macallan has always NOT been recommended since it is made in Sherry casks.

sherry casks is not a problem. if you look in the shulchan oruch (i dont have it in front of me but if you want i will find it for you) it is only nosen ta'am lshvach for wine. for any other liquid wine in the walls of the barrel is nosen ta'am lifgam. when i learnt smicha i was told this clearly by the rosh machon smicha

i think that there are prominant poskim who permit sherry casks

Im sure there are.

But most hashgochas do not allow it due to many poskim who classify it in "questionable" status (or worse).

My personal feeling is- where there is so much variety of other great scotches to buy, as there is nowadays, why do we need to even consider something that some deem potentially problematic?

Exactly, and besides Glenlivet Nadurra is kosher-what else do you need?  ;D
