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

the problem with this is, is that many scotch experts themselves argue whether or not it is noisain taam lshvach or is it just raicha, which would not be a problem. It is definately not clear whether it is noisain taam lfgam or not. Therefore most authorities say "not recommended" and some will say not allowed if made with sherry casks. I'd ask a rav for particulars...YMMV

(besides why risk it if there are plenty of good scotches on the crc list that are acceptable and quite tasty... i hope i dont get flamed for this)

Weekday Booze
« Reply #21 on: May 30, 2011, 02:08:28 AM »
When I was in yeshiva, there was no shabbos booze and weekday booze. Any booze I owned I drank anytime I wanted.

But my father has this mishegos, that he only drinks his scotch on shabbos. I have basically adopted this also, so now I need to have weekday booze and shabbos booze.

Now, I like bourbon just as good, so I would be fine drinking it on shabbos, but if I did, then I couldn't drink it during the week, and then what would I drink. I could drink rum, and I do (Belize Travellers One Barrel Rum), but you can't only drink one thing on 6/7ths of the days of the year.

So I'm drinking Elijah Craig right now. At 2:07E/1:07C/12:07M/11:07W. Which is a long time to drink for.

Care to be more specific about what you consider a nice bottle of scotch?

Personally I'm more of a Vodka guy.

Looks like it's going to have to be Dan's house. CLE is closer than LGA anyway.
