Title: Liqour/Whiskey/Bourbon Master Thread
Post by: rover771 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

Post by: coralsnake on July 21, 2008, 09:34:06 AM

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?

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)

Title: Weekday Booze
Post by: henche 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.

Would a Japanese whiskey fall into the "Scotch" category? Obviously it is not and cannot officially be defined as a scotch, but it is more similar to scotch than to other whiskeys and is considered by many to be scotchÖ. If you get involved you will find that there are some rather interesting and tasty bottles to be hadÖ.

I love Sapporo, a great Japanese beer :)

Yamazaki, delicious - especially the 18yr. A bit pricey though, recently the price has gone up evEn more.
Karuizawa, incredible as well. Price is also a bit steep and the good bottles are becoming harder to come around.

If you truly appreciate scotch you will love both of these. The tastes are rather similar to scotch but an educated pallette will notice a difference.

They are both aged in sherry casks which may be a problem to some....

the "vintage bourbon" 21 year cost roughly $90 (IIRC) and is a super smooth full flavor sipping bourbon, you could drink it with a straw! :) very strong oak flavor but not overpowering also somewhat spicy (some people prefer the 17 year version which is a little cheaper and has a slightly sweeter more complex bouquet)

Blanton's is my go to gulping bourbon if you what a great shot which shines the whole way down and leaves an awesome taste in your mouth go with the blanton's there are a couple variations i like the gold horse one. This bourbon has a rougher feel but not too harsh.  It has a classic boubon flavor (read caramel/vanilla and some spice) and some prefer it cut with a bit of water as this mellows it while bringing out the flavor

hows that for "pretentious" and snobby?  :) :)

This is kind of related since they sell it on many liquor sites. If anyone finds any deals on red bull, let me know! I like to buy them by the case. Just finished my last can from when I bought 2 cases of 24 (my DDF handle is not for nothing  :)).

did you try contacting them direct? They seem like a good company to deal with direct. Just based on the PR I've seen with them.

For the bourbon lovers out there. Try Michters American Whisky (not the bourbon. I know). My new favorite. Sold out in most places in NY/NJ, and the places that still have it have doubled their prices.

IME I couldn't find any of the big hechshers here in the US or Canada who recommended Baileys but they did recommend certain hechsherim that recommended it. I can't remember 100% at the moment their names. One was from London and one from Australia. I actually emailed them about this a couple months back.
I'll double check my info and let you know the names of hechsherim that do recommend it.
Title: Re: Liqour/Whiskey/Bourbon Master Thread
Post by: sky121 on February 18, 2013, 07:18:11 AM
KLBD and KA (kashrut authority) both have Baileys on their recommended list last time i checked.

CRC recommends both those hechsherim BUT only for products actually bearing their hechsher.

Do you know if they recommend it b/c they've checked it?
Maybe the US hechsherim haven't been involved b/c it's manufactured overseas (assuming it is).

It is manufactured overseas.
I am going to assume if a hechsher recommends a product its because they've looked into it, no?

Title: Re: Liqour/Whiskey/Bourbon Master Thread
Post by: sky121 on February 18, 2013, 07:39:11 AM
One of my many emails...this ones from KLBD.


American Kashrut Authorities only permit alcoholic drinks which are kosher certified or supervised. In the UK, it is more difficult to obtain such drinks and so the LBD allows products like Baileys which are not certified but have been checked by detailed correspondence with the manufacturers. It is preferable, where possible to buy supervised or certified products.
We recommend that you follow the advice of your local kashrut authority.

np - As for Southern Comfort that's a bit more complicated. I believe different people have different opinions depending on where it comes from.   I know that you could even buy it with a hechsher a few years ago.

Some of the bottles have hechsher issues because of whey.

i don't know the answer but I'm curious, is that special edition a special Kedem run?

(at first i thought there would be no point, even for those who are makpid as rum isn't wine based but then i saw this on the Angels Envy's website: "We chose rum barrels that had previously been used to age French cognac")
Title: Re: Liqour/Whiskey/Bourbon Master Thread
Post by: henche on August 12, 2013, 12:33:10 PM
Went here yesterday http://cacaoprieto.com/
Tour is 8 dollars each, but if you buy a bottle, the tour is free. Bought a bottle of rye for 39, so it really cost me 23 bec I did the tour regardless.
The chocolate is really amazing. But 10 bucks for a bar.
The whiskey is excellent, but it isn't made by them yet. Their stuff is not on market yet, but meanwhile they are selling stuff that they bought from a different micro-distillery (I'm guessing the other one went out of business before it could get it's stuff to market, but it is excellent regardlessly).

The Credited Response: Go at 1:00 next sunday. Go Kayaking at Red Hook Boating for free which is 2 blocks away (parking is no problem at all), then do 4:00 tour at distillery/chocolaterry,  then buy bottle of rye and bar of chocolate.

The caveat: We were the only ones on the tour and the tour guide was umm not exactly dressed to R. Falk's standards.

Ask your LOR because it is most probably fine, there are those who are makpid more specifically kashrus organizations but i know  a few very chashuv mainstream rabbanim who are connected to kashrus agencies who advise against buying such whiskeys but when asked personally will tell you that it is totally mutar L'chatchila

Anyone want to buy my Macallan 25 years old which comes in a green gift box and is now stuck in New York.

Would be easier for me to sell it then to organize it being shipped.

I belive the list price is around 800 USD but would consider offers..

Also, you should just pack it in bubble wrap and Fed ex it.

Also, you can take it into a liquor store and they might let you trade it in at a loss

What's up with newark airport.
I flew on Jan. 2nd and they had only one single malt scotch, a highland park.
If I would have known this I just would have bought in bengurion before I flew.
Is this typical for newark.
I never saw such poor duty free shops in an airport.

Discussed here (http://forums.dansdeals.com/index.php?topic=12083.msg154769#msg154769). They ship from California.
beltramos.com has Glenlivet 12 for aprox. $28ea shipped to NY if ur getting 4 bottles. The more you buy the cheaper the shipping comes (ie. 6 bottles = ~$27ea shipped).

Also Glenlivet 18 comes out to $69/bottle shipped if your getting 4.

I ordered a case of Glen 12 750ml from them last month and it came out to $356.90 /12 = $29.75 each. Local liquor shop in Brooklyn has it for $51.
Breakdown is $25.99 per bottle + $3.75 shipping (when dividing shipping by total bottles ordered).

Best Bourbon I've has is Angel's Envy followed by Blanton's followed by vintage bourbon

That being said, Basil Hayden's is a delicious bourbon it's just wildly different than most bourbons in that it doesn't have the "shine" or full body, it can almost be sipped with a straw! basically it's a segue between scotch and bourbon.

Per the CRC (http://www.crcweb.org/LiquorList.pdf), Ealanta is recommended, and Astar/original are recommended when bearing an OU. Just saw Astar with an OU a few minutes ago (got glenrothes alba reserve, which is excellent IMO for <$50)

It was on Shabbos, so I don't have a link but I imagine they were talking about the regular list (http://www.crcweb.org/LiquorList.pdf). Perhaps it was recently updated. Says Jameson is something to avoid because of the casks. Has it always said that? When I was at the factory a few weeks ago, they said the regular Jameson is usually stored in old Jack Daniels casks.

30 years is a nice high bar to set, but for starters it has to be a single malt, no blends. What's your recommended bottle? I liked Glen Ord 30 but does not exist anymore :(

Ppl in Shul were murmuring about a new CRC list that says not to drink a lot of the stuff that people have been drinking for years. No hock here about that?

http://cor.ca/assets/static/node/201409/files/541/RH.web2.pdf

"There has been much discussion and debate regarding the kosher status of scotch whiskeys that are aged in wine/sherry casks. Scotch whiskey, by definition1, contains only kosher ingredients. Notwithstanding, the spirit must be aged in an oak barrel for a minimum of three years. Scotch manufacturers generally reuse barrels that were previously used to store alcoholic beverages such as sherry, cognac, bourbon, rum or beer. The kashrut concern raised by the use of sherry or wine barrels is that the absorbed wine is almost certainly stam yaynom which is not kosher. Halachik clarification was required to determine whether or not this non-kosher taste that is absorbed in the barrel could render the Scotch as non-kosher.

COR has taken interest in clarifying this matter since it is apparent that many leading Rabbanim in our community are of the opinion that scotch aged in sherry casks is permitted for consumption. Over the last several years, COR has consulted with several industry and kashrut experts in an effort to research the involved issues and formulate a position on its halachik status.

COR further consulted with our communityís Rabbanim; including Rav Dovid Schochet shlitĒa, President of the Vaad HaRabbonim and Rav Shlomo Miller shlitĒa, Rosh Bais Din of Kollel Toronto amongst other leading Rabbanim, as well as CORís Rabbinical Vaad Hakashruth. In light of the conclusions of our research and according to the guidance of our Rabbinical Vaad Hakashruth, COR policy will now allow the use of scotches aged in sherry casks at COR-certified venues and events. This policy applies only to scotch and not to other types of whiskey which may involve other halachik complexities including non-kosher wine or glycerin which can be mixed into the whiskey recipe.

Throughout the next several months, Mashgichim who supervise events that are using scotch aged in sherry casks will post signage at the bar indicating the status of the scotch."

No, I haven't.  I usually reserve that for some strong bourbon like Bookers.

The common ground here is the alcohol content.

Bourbons are usually sold at cask strength (depending on the year it usually ranges from 45% to 60%) Bookers specifically range at very high alcohol contents.

 In contrast, generally scotch is already cut (watered down) to precisely 40% alcohol. Nadura is an anomaly and is uncut remaining like many a bourbon at it's original cask strength, in this case a potent 57% or so!
 It will have a MUCH stronger bite than the average sipping scotch, hence if you want it to drink like a more traditional scotch ya gotta water it down!

Jack Daniels is owned by Brown Forman. On the bottle it is listed as a Tennessee Whiskey. However if you go to other bourbon plants owned by them (like Woodford Reserve) they are very quick to point out that Jack theoretically is a bourbon. At the very least it is crafted in the bourbon style.

That's not true. Most Kentucky bourbons aren't produced in Bourbon County. Towns like Louisville, Frankfort, Versailles, Loretto, etc. all are outside of Bourbon County. Take a look at any Bourbon Trail map.

My comment was based on what was told to me at a distillery tour at Woodford Reserve, another Brown Forman facility. From what I've seen and heard bourbons can be charcoal filtered and Bookers for example is also charcoal filtered and it sounds like many others are as well.

Unlike anything you have ever tasted, Booker's is one of the only uncut, unfiltered, straight-from-the-barrel, bourbons available today. It's bottled at its natural proof of between 121 and 127, and aged between six and eight years. Booker's Bourbon delivers a range of intense flavors from oak tannin and smoky vanilla to lighter tones of mocha and coffee. Add spring water to customize the taste and finish to your palate. The complexity provided by this straight-from-the-barrel bourbon makes Booker's the rarest, absolute best bourbon you'll ever taste.

My shul conducted a bourbon/whiskey tasting one Succos and brought in a rep from Jack Daniels that explained all the different varieties. Technically Jack Daniels has all the right ingredients but since its produced out of Bourbon County it doesnt count as Bourbon therefore they call it "Tennessee Whiskey" and their only bourbon is  Woodford.

My mistake, I misread a link about Jim Beam Choice (green label) which is charcoal filtered. In any event, from what I've read, any bourbon could be charcoal filtered and still legally be called a bourbon.

My reading of the law led me to agree with that to a degree

JD is emphatically calling themselves NOT a bourbon, but that may just be their attempt at differentiation.

I just wonder if the law's provision about using new charred American oak precludes the use of maple.

I was thinking about that also because they seem to be pretty clear about new American white oak (to the exclusion of french oak).

At the end of the day I'd rather stick with the whiskeys brewed close to home like Stranahan's, Tincup and Fireside.

Has Singleton on shabbos, pretty underrated scotch:

As of Now: (Updated)
Best Scotches
For 40-60: The Singleton
For 60-80: Balvenie 14yr Carribean Cask
For 80-100: Glenlivet Nadurra

For 40-60 go with Balvenie 12 Yr Single Malt Doublewood or Cardhu

IMHO the Balvenie 12yr tastes too much like glenlivet 15 which Singleton trumps; didn't try Cardhu yet

IMHO swap the Nadurra for Compass Box Hedonisim

Didn't try it yet. It's on the waiting list :). Sounds very interesting given the fact that it's a blended grain scotch

Because anyone can tell if it says it on the label. If you're looking at a list then you're looking for more info, so therefore "only includes Scotches that are certified and/or are known to not have any contact
with wine or wine casks."
meaning - unknowns are not recommended, in contrast to their actual policy (as a certifying agency) of it having to be on the label, which AFAIK is based on the IGM.
CRC does a lot of research into stuff, and the Chicago Kollel published a book on sherry casks, which has a lot of interesting research as well.

From the NY times, (http://www.nytimes.com/2013/06/05/dining/whiskey-producers-court-their-jewish-market.html?pagewanted=all&_r=0) doesn't seem that it was ever a sure thing
Quote
In a smaller-scale but similar enterprise, the Royal Wine Corporation, a New York producer of kosher wine and grape juice, asked Wesley Henderson two years ago if he would be interested in making a kosher-certified version of his boutique bourbon, Angelís Envy. ďWe were looking for a bourbon line in general,Ē said Shlomo S. Blashka, a wine and spirits educator at Royal, also the New York-area distributor of Angelís Envy. ďThe Jewish community is a very big bourbon community.Ē

Mr. Henderson did not have to be told. ďYouíd have to be blind not to notice it,Ē he said. ďI thought, if you had a kosher bourbon, that would be a great thing. It seemed a no-brainer.Ē

For the new whiskey, Angelís Envy was aged for six months in barrels that had held Kedem kosher port for 20 years. The run sold quickly, Mr. Henderson said, and may become a permanent addition to the bourbon makerís line.

The new Oban: Oban little bay which cost about $65.

Auchnagie, from the lost distillery. They mixed single malts to create the flavor of the original distillery that closed in 1911 and is supposed to be very smooth and good. They have 3 from the lost distillery: Auchnagie,gerston and Stratheden. I believe the stratheden is smokey and the other 2 smooth.

The cost of the Auchnagie was $60.

Usually very good selection and prices. I have used them before. You'll need to call about shipping rates for Canada. In general, the more bottles the cheaper the shipping for bottle will be.

Call    (516) 374-9463 and (516) 371-1133

Chateau de Vin and Rockaway liquor warehouse. Ask if they ship. They both certainly carry stuff in the $300 range.

This should probably be its own thread. I like:

Shiloh Secret Reserve (~$35)
Yatir Cabernet (~$40)
Psagot M-Series (~$40)

I bought:

Psagot Merlot 2011 ($25)
Capcanes Peraj Petita ($20)


Psagot was OK. Not sure I'd necessarily do it again.

For that price range, try Herzog Variations 3, 4, 5. I prefer the 5. They combine grapes from 3/4/5 different vineyards, so there's a bunch of flavors in one bottle.

Star-K (http://www.star-k.org/cons-appr-liquor.htm) seems to approve, cRc (http://www.crcweb.org/LiquorList.pdf#page=16) has a problem with something, not sure if it's the same item or not...
any definitive status?

Also, any high-end kosher restaurants in Islay? Minyanim for shachris (vasikin)? Daf yomi shiur (with tosfos)?

http://cor.ca/assets/static/node/201409/files/541/RH.web2.pdf

"There has been much discussion and debate regarding the kosher status of scotch whiskeys that are aged in wine/sherry casks. Scotch whiskey, by definition1, contains only kosher ingredients. Notwithstanding, the spirit must be aged in an oak barrel for a minimum of three years. Scotch manufacturers generally reuse barrels that were previously used to store alcoholic beverages such as sherry, cognac, bourbon, rum or beer. The kashrut concern raised by the use of sherry or wine barrels is that the absorbed wine is almost certainly stam yaynom which is not kosher. Halachik clarification was required to determine whether or not this non-kosher taste that is absorbed in the barrel could render the Scotch as non-kosher.

COR has taken interest in clarifying this matter since it is apparent that many leading Rabbanim in our community are of the opinion that scotch aged in sherry casks is permitted for consumption. Over the last several years, COR has consulted with several industry and kashrut experts in an effort to research the involved issues and formulate a position on its halachik status.

COR further consulted with our communityís Rabbanim; including Rav Dovid Schochet shlitĒa, President of the Vaad HaRabbonim and Rav Shlomo Miller shlitĒa, Rosh Bais Din of Kollel Toronto amongst other leading Rabbanim, as well as CORís Rabbinical Vaad Hakashruth. In light of the conclusions of our research and according to the guidance of our Rabbinical Vaad Hakashruth, COR policy will now allow the use of scotches aged in sherry casks at COR-certified venues and events. This policy applies only to scotch and not to other types of whiskey which may involve other halachik complexities including non-kosher wine or glycerin which can be mixed into the whiskey recipe.

Throughout the next several months, Mashgichim who supervise events that are using scotch aged in sherry casks will post signage at the bar indicating the status of the scotch."

not a new shaila Reb Moshe Feinstien zt"l held it was not a problem. bigger problem is the bourbon/chametz issue. it doesnt seem like there is any easy out of that one

that what's it? Company was definitely purchased by a Jew who doesn't sell his chametz. The consensus of all poskim is that whiskey is chametz. Unless it's more than 5/6 corn, or you want to be someich on an unspoke hava amina in the noda beyihudah, I think it would be chametz sheavar alav hapesach. I'd be eager to hear another heter.

1) If you hold whiskey isn't chometz.

Not backed up at all. Just contemplating.

1)The only tzad heter to my knowledge say that whiskey isn't chametz (or my correctly, is chametz nuksha, or zeas chametz) is a tzad of a shoel in a noda beyehuda. In the teshuva the NB has a workaround and doesn't address the point. hardly an endorsement. There may be a biur halacha that brings this as a non halachic point, but I couldn't find it last time round. 
2) 1/60th batel before pesach helps how? I did ten times better for you, I said if it's ,ore than 5/6 corn (1/6) you can drink it.

seems to be a machlokes CRC and Star K regarding general quidelines on tequila.

CRC: There are four types of tequila: Blanco (white/silver), Oro (brown/gold), Reposada (aged) and Anejo (extra aged). [Unflavored] Blanco is recommended without hashgachah, but the other three require certification to avoid concerns that flavor, color, and glycerin were added.

Star K: Tequila (Anejo, Resposado, Gold)

The issue is in the aging stage,  when it's in the manufacturer's barrels for a number of years,  by default encompassing pesach.  Definitely a Jew and definitely doesn't sell his chametz. I believe that the metzias is very clear.

Major distilleries all have their own aging warehouses, in fact in this  (http://bourbonr.com/blog/bourbonagingexplained/)article Buffalo Trace is used as an example. Good Bourbon is usually 5 or more years old. Only new upstarts, who don't have their own aged stock will outsource, or store brands and the like.

during the buffalo trace tour I was told that pappy was not owned by the distillery
Could be the same owner owns the distillery and also owns pappy but it didn't sound like that to me


The Pesach issue with pappy comes from the fact that the distillery makes another label called W L Weller which is the same exact thing as pappy.  What happens for example is that they make 100 barrels of that recipe mash and put it in barrels after a couple of years pappy comes down tastes the barrels and decides which 50 they want which only then get marked as pappy bottles. The remaining barrels become W L weller

A Lil ot, but I have great maaseh about Buffalo Trace. I had gone to the distillary on my Kentucky Trip, and unknowingly decided to buy a bottle of the stuff.
A week later, I was flying intl and my suitcase was overweight, so without thinking I transferred a heavy shoebox to my carry-on.
Of course the shoebox had my bottle and TSA took it away
Anyway, I call my friend to complain about dumb TSA and he informs me that the bottle was not actually kosher...they say Hashem doesn't let Tzaddikim sin.

I tried reading upthread to find an answer - to no avail. I was recently asked to by alcohol for a Chassunah, so I picked up a bottle of Glenlivet 15 French Oak Reserve. Upon bringing it to the chassunah the mashgiach told me that it's on the CRC list as "Not Recommended" and therefore can not be served at a KCL event. (Note: KCL does NOT have its own policies on alcohol, they completely rely on the CRC list. The little cards with the hechsher info on the tables at Chassunahs clearly state that) Without a fuss I took the bottle off (don't worry I had a backup) however I started to do research. It seems like Glenlivet ages their Scotches in Bourboun Casks (which poses no halachic problem) for 12 years. At that point, they either get bottled and sold as Glenlivet 12, or are transferred into other cask to be "matured" or "finished" for several more years. In the case of the Glenlivet 15 French Oak Reserve, they would be aged for an additional 3 years. They are aged in French Limousin Oak Casks. These casks are known for aging Cognac, however the wording on the box says the following: "... The selective maturation in NEW French Oak Casks made from Limousin Oak..." My question therefore is, if these casks are new, why is there a problem?

I just got off the phone with the CRC (a very helpful, kind and knowledgeable man) and he read me from the Glenlivet website about the Glenlivet 15 French Oak Reserve.
Quote
Craft Facts:
 The 15 Year Old’s distinctive character is the result of selective maturation; a proportion of the spirit is matured in a selection of French Oak casks for a limited period, so as not to overpower the final result.

The Glenlivet was one of the first distilleries to use French Oak in the whisky making process, a technique that has since been imitated by many others.

 Limousin Oak, which is cut in the Dordogne region of France, is often used to mature fine wines and cognacs. In the case of The Glenlivet, its low density allows the spirit to penetrate deep into the wood, imparting the expression’s distinctive spiciness.

The French Oak also increases the intensity of the whisky, resulting in a richer and creamier finish.
The key words here is "A Proportion." It seems that after 12 years of being aged in Bourbon Casks, the Scotch is then split up, some to "New French Oak Casks" and some in "Sherry Casks." There is the problem. So being that the CRC does not recommend Scotch that has been aged in any non-kosher "Wine Casks" the Glenlivet 15 is listed as "Not Recommended."

GR Alba can be found  for 40-50 pretty easily. 90 is crazy, unless it's a huge bottle.

Not doubting your quote, but would be considered to be a chidush since there commonly is chametz (fermented barley) which is an integral part of the process it wouldn't be batel. That is the opinion on the AKO, which represents most North American Kashrus Organizations.  This seems to be clear in the Mishna Berura as well (442:27). http://www.crcweb.org/Whisky%20Alert%20with%20Q&A%20(Sep%202010).pdf
Is it possible the question posed to Rav Miller was from someone who already owned the questionable bourbon? That would be very different, because we are meikel on chametz sheaver alav hapesach derabanan in a case of hefsed. that would not apply to someone who was buying it already ipso facto.
It may also be true that the well intentioned person who did the research on this did the community a disservice since there isn't really a chiyuv to be mevarer the ownership. But once it's done it's done.

Many brandys are good since they're made from fruits, such as plums dates pears etc.
The Louis rover mentioned is the only kosher congac that  aware of, which is made from grapes.

You're getting me confused. I was just asking if the savings justifies the bother of schlepping glass bottles around and making a special trip to the store in LA.

Apparently it's worth it. That's all I was asking.

You don't need to go to that specific store.

Most Ralph's or BevMo! will have the same great prices (and perhaps even better sales).

If you order a case, shipping comes out to around $4 a bottle. Still much cheaper then buying locally in NY.

Overall shipping cost goes up a little bit per bottle. But the individual shipping (when divided equally per bottle) goes down the more you add.

You know anyone making a Simcha in the next few weeks / months? Pitch this as a great way for them to save $$$ compared to local prices (even when factoring in shipping costs).

1) The fact that KLBD is " closer" means little in the 21st century.
2) The fact that you saw it served at many kiddushim or saw rabbis drink it also means nothing, doesnt mean they are aware. I also find it funny that you discredited the CRC because they aren't as involved according to you as KLBD yet you bring a random shul serving it as proof that it's good.

All scotch whisky (SM or blended) is regulated by Scottish law that no colourings, additives etc can be added. Virtually every single whisky that CRC don't recommend are allowed without question by KLBD as they are not matured in sherry casks etc. See link:

http://www.kosher.org.uk/article/are-all-whiskies-kosher

Hence I find it puzzling that CRC 'don't recommend' so many of those whiskies eg Abelour, Glengoyne etc. No justifiable reason not to do so.

It doesn't matter if half the world does it. I'm not saying you aren't correct about the Kashrus status though saying that "everybody" says its ok without a definitive and knowledgeable source doesnt hold much water. One big example I can think if is the WAJ. Yes, most Jews eat there, even ones that wouldnt eat rabbanut mehadrin let alone reg rabbanut. If you ask people and track the source it's always someone hearing from someone else without a platform to stand on. I have been looking since it opened for a respected rav in Israel who knows Kashrus here and who doesnt hold of Rabbanut who will tell you that WAJ is OK. While I'm sure its kosher in the highest regard, not always is the fact that everyone does something proof that its ok.

I admittedly have no idea who or what WAJ is or where it is. However, in terms of a definitive and knowledgable source regarding whisky, you won't find much better than the KLBD, hence my surprise and confusion as to why CRC take such a stance on perfectly acceptable malt whisky.

You don't have to contact them but before saying to "take their word with a pinch of salt", "other organizations are more knowledgeable", and " confusion", you prob should find out their reason first.

Where did KLBD contradict CRC? I do not see where they permitted any CRC lists as not recommended. Quite the opposite. THey DO NOT recommend Abelour since it mentions Sherry Casks.

Abelour 12, 16 and A'bunadh are not matured in sherry casks. I have the 12 and A'bunadh in my cupboard. All 3 are permitted by KLBD.

This argument is going in circles. Seems the CRC are being overly stringent on their market for no undue reason.

With the depth and complexity that comes from being matured for 16 years in a combination of first fill oak Bourbon casks and the finest Sherry butts, this expressionís warm fruity notes are enriched by an engagingly spicy sweetness.

The 12 year-old expression is a fine example of how the distinctively crisp, citrus character of Aberlourís raw spirit is deftly softened by double cask maturation. Traditional oak and seasoned Sherry butts are both used to great effect, as the mellowed spirits within are combined to deliver a subtly balanced flavour.

All scotch whisky (SM or blended) is regulated by Scottish law that no colourings, additives etc can be added. Virtually every single whisky that CRC don't recommend are allowed without question by KLBD as they are not matured in sherry casks etc. See link:

http://www.kosher.org.uk/article/are-all-whiskies-kosher

Hence I find it puzzling that CRC 'don't recommend' so many of those whiskies eg Abelour, Glengoyne etc. No justifiable reason not to do so.

I think you are mistaken. colorings are allowed in scotch (and many dark whisky's use coloring). coloring is not allowed in american bourbon.

I find the scotch whisky lists to be quite lacking and uninformative. They do not give a comprehensive look at whisky's, rather they look at "popular" ones. Glengoyne and Aberlour (as do most macallan's) use ex-sherry casks. Ask your LOR whether that presents an issue for you. 

Some whisky's that my ultra ortho friends serve and shuls and catering halls serve (eg glenlivet, johnnie have a hint of sherry in the taste for some experts).

What is bothersome for me is by the standard that people are putting on ex-sherry casks, for kashrus, how can you drink any blends? a blend can have dozens and dozens of scotches from hundreds or barrels, hogsheads, casks, and stills, how can one know what was used and how anything was cleaned for a blend?

I love how people are so quick to put down a hashgocha with no basis.
Are you aware of the fact that Rabbi Akiva Niehaus works for the CRC and literally wrote the book on sherry casks in halacha?
Are you aware that rabbi fishbane,  is the head of the CRC and is also the very well respected head of the AKO?
You have no idea of what you speak,  admittedly have no intention or interest in researching the facts,  but based on anecdotal evidence are happy to put down an organization comprised of chashuva talmedei chachamim.

question is: other than being rejected during the checkout process (like mission), will any of these turn up issues later? (either cancel order or some other complication?)

also, offhand [1-2 items I checked] seems like remedy is considerably cheaper. unless you consider the free shipping from liquorbarn

If you're ordering for private use (or sharing with friends), I doubt you'll have any issues. If you're ordering for commercial use, that could be problematic.

If you're ordering 12+ bottles, even with paying for shipping it can be cheaper to order from remedy. Fill up equal carts on both sites and compare.

2 good bottles I came across:

2- Glenlivet Founders Reserve $59 - $69

Bothe very smooth and reasonably priced.

$40 in CH. Not sure how long sale will last. Price doesn't seem to require case purchase.

The Founders Reserve is an appalling whisky. Trust me, don't go there. It tastes like it needs quite a lot longer in the cask (it's NAS). It's been on sale for months in all of the whisky retailers in the UK.

Glenlivet have discontinued their 12 yo which was a solid, dependable malt, and replaced it with this. Yuck.

They replaced it because they were running low on 12 year. Hence the NAS.

IMO, Glenlivet 12 was the Sam Adams of scotch.  Good decent bottle for a decent price with excellent name recognition, but not very exciting and probably overpriced due to market demand.  At any kiddush, it's the last bottle I reach for.

Just received my order from masterofmalt.com. Shipping arrived as scheduled. Bottles were packed very nicely in bubble wrap. Shipped with fedex.
Bottles are 70CL not 750ML so they are a little smaller- but the pricing is well worth it.

I found several of their bottles are significantly cheaper than found in NY/NJ stores.

depends what your looking for... 15-20 as a collection for investment? drink? simcha? do you need these bottles to impress or what is considered a excellent bottle. [I am personally particular to bourbon or rye]
IMO you cant go wrong for drinking and a simcha with anything from willet which includes the classic pot still bottle, any of the family reserve bottles (if you can find it), rowans creek, noahs mill, and old bardstown. additionally pretty much any old forester will work well for you. Jack Daniels single barrel.   
on the more collectible end it gets a little nuts and prices jump significantly. if you see anything from orphan barrel worthwhile to pick up (although be wary of pricing as ive seen people mark it up by 80-90% over msrp). any of the barrel proof elijah craigs bottles, michters,  holy cow this list can go on and on...

Lismore 21 Year Old - The Legend   $54.70
The Glenlivet 18 Year Old   $61.87 @   4   $247.47
Tormore 16 Year Old $68.06

Not just for me- 3 people total.
They have some bottles which get the whole order free shipping. the bunnahabin 33 did that. I thought if we spend $300 on shipping, why not get a cool bottle and free shipping.


Didn't know about the free shipping thing. Just paid $80 of shipping for an order :(

IMO rowans creek and noah's mill are horrible, but to each their own
definitely true in regards to each their own.. ta'am vi'raiach. horrible is seemingly harsh, it is indisputable that most reputable rating sites have them ranked fairly high. putting that aside, as someone who only drinks bourbon and have had my fair share of garbage bourbons out there, these two are on my recommended list.

Dont be affraid to go with bottles that people havent heard of. (there is more to the scotch world than Livet, Fidduch, Balvenie and Macallan)

Look for smaller brands like: glengoyne, glen scotia, Benriach, Glen Moray, Tormore and tullibardine that give you great bang for your buck. Dont be afraid of Gordon & Macphail or Signatory either.

You can get macallan 18 for $250ish or both Tullibardine 20 and Glenfarclas 17 for the same price. 

Scotch is a never ending education - dont get into a rut of having the same 3-4 popular brands just because thats whats served everywhere...

Exactly this. Glengoyne 12 is an amazing malt.

Yes because people are afraid to try it... at one point macallan 18 was $150/bottle and people were afraid to try it... now it got popular and its $250.

Why is glenfarclas 17 $80 at some places and $150 at others? People are starting to find out about it and price goes up..

IMHO one should try various kinds as many as possible and find ones they like/love and scoop more of those bottles and continue to try more and more (within health capabilities).

missionliquor.com
remedyliquor.com

Check pricing on both. Some items that are already super cheap on one, will be an extra $1-$2 cheaper on the other.

Shipping will generally be cheapest (per bottle) when ordering a case (single type or mixed) at a time. Play around with this. Larger then standard bottles may be coded to take up more shipping box space.
I like this site better

It searches all over for the price those sites you mentioned are probably searched as well
www.WineSearcher.com


it's a Google Shopping Search for Liquor.
Thereís a post somewhere above that Mission no longer ships to NY. Shipping usually comes out to $4-$5 a bottle when buying a case.

These might do the trick: https://www.urbanbar.us/product/spey-dram-glass-4oz/
They have a nice tapered opening which concentrates the nose like the glencairn. And while they're actually a little smaller than the glencairn, the size is perfect if you're just sampling/tasting.

They have other options (even some that more closely resemble a glencairn) but looks like most are out of stock at the moment.

Posting that mission liquor stopped shipping out of state is deff good useful information. Posting a cheap store or a good deal in a store is also useful. Posting every store that sells liquor to Jewish clients in large Jewish communities is not important to 99 % of people.

that bottle is an allocated bottle which inherently means it will be harder to find. The 67.5% ABV is a specific year and batch (you should actually be referencing the proof and batch to be more specific). Every barrel proof bottle will be different, (even in taste, meaning just because you found a bottle of eh taylor you love, the next bottle unless its from the same barrel wont taste the same, although they usually put out a quality product). the small batch bottles they try and keep the proof the same, but barrel proof it is what it is.
Title: Re: Liqour/Whiskey/Bourbon Master Thread
Post by: ADG on February 21, 2018, 02:27:55 PM
You are correct. They told me from the distillery that this years batch was 64.5 ABV.

if you are female, (shifra?) let me ask, have you ever purchased something that has a female name because it had such a name? Jane? If anything you should be indignant that they feel they have to pander to you, that heaven forbid something with a male name may be less feminine. pathetic.
As a red blooded male, I can honestly say I have never even considered the name of the product as catering to my masculinity. I dont know what I would do.... I guess my childhood of Betty Crocker and Aunt Jemima has to be rethought.

that said, most booze panders heavy to men, so women perhaps get signals it just isnt for them and they should stick to cocktails, smirnoff ice and Moscato :).
I think deep down name/image/branding of manliness definitely affects me (thats why im a cheap bourbon (jack/jim beam, on yom tov knob creek/wild turkey 101) drinking, it makes me feel more manly and overcomes my general girliness :)).

idk, i'm all for smart marketing and witty ad campaigns. but to change an iconic name to attract women to me that is insulting (to the women if anything).
also as portrayed in movies and tv you will often see women drinking booze heavily, so as a ffb guy i cant speak confidently that in the secular world women do not imbibe as often/ much as their male counterparts. it could be that the caricature you are painting of the cocktails smirnoff etc applies to the frum women drinkers.

idk, i'm all for smart marketing and witty ad campaigns. but to change an iconic name to attract women to me that is insulting (to the women if anything).
also as portrayed in movies and tv you will often see women drinking booze heavily, so as a ffb guy i cant speak confidently that in the secular world women do not imbibe as often/ much as their male counterparts. it could be that the caricature you are painting of the cocktails smirnoff etc applies to the frum women drinkers. (of which that is my perception as well).
Quote from: OP Article
A limited U.S. edition of the whisky will have a striding woman on the label
What else is this if not smart marketing? Nobody is changing any iconic names, look at the label, it's still being called "Johnnnie Walker Black Label" their only adding "The Jane Walker Edition" (which by definition says that it's a limited edition)

+1 on it not being cheaper. I would say it's like anywhere else, there are cheaper stores and more expensive.

I went to maybe 7 stores and found Total Wine and More to be cheapest, though i couldn't find any rare bottles anywhere.

I would only add, IME, bottles not widely distributed outside of Kentucky were cheaper there.

When I was at the Buffalo Trace Distillery, the guide mentioned that by law the distilleries cannot sell directly to the public, (I believe it depends on the State, how large the total production is and if allowed it's capped at a certain amount per customer), therefore it would not be cheaper in Kentucky or even at the distillery's own gift shop.

This is a bigger issue than יין נסך and is quite common in bourbon
Blantons is kosher. Delicious bourbon.
The Star-K disagrees.

The Sazerac company brands, including buffalo trace, blantons, eagle rare, pappy and many more, owned by the Goldring family, don't sell their chometz and thats where problems arise.
However the Heaven Hill brand(Parker's, evan williams, elijah craig), owned by the shapira family, sell their chometz and is kosher-see star-k list.

This is inaccurate, bourbon has actual chametz. Bourbon mash has to be 51% corn, and usually contains rye or barley as a significant second ingredient. There is a different heter, not to buy, but to keep, because of hefsed, discussed on the forums previously.

Regardless of where a store is, itís not only selling to you and your standards. What one Jew considers Kosher might be Chas Veísholom to another.

There is so much confusion with alcohol in general.

When a list says 'not recommended' they should explain the reason why, so ppl can make a decison for themselves (ex. Sherry cask).
Imho, when they write 'not recommended' on bottles like glenlivet 18 or glenfiddich 12, 15, 18 etc, w/o reasoning when most ppl drink these, it cheapens the whole list and ppl disregard it.

There's also so many vague terms like "Acceptable", "Recommended", "Not Recommended", and then some missing from lists entirely.

At the end of the day, I think there can really be only 3 reasons alcohol could ever be bad:

- Chametz SheAvar Alav HaPesach (rare for many things at point of manufacturer)
- Kosher sensitive ingredients, such as grape products
- Potential cross-contamination with non-kosher ingredients

Really hard to figure out how those categories match to actual issues.

The CRC, for example, is happy to explain themselves, C and are very well researched. They have different classifications within sherry casks, and are ok with some, not others. (depends on how much final product was in said casks and other factors).
They have no responsibility to explain why they recommend or not recommend, and sometimes they don't have all the facts but also don't know that it's not good either (c.f. some Starbucks products). But if you ask them they're happy to explain.

I think it has to do with finishing. Glenfiddich often finishes in sherry cask thereby adding sherry flavor to the whisky. I think the kashrus agencies generally agree that when sherry is added for flavor they dont recommend it. when its added for color they are usually fine with it.

This is some fraud that is going on. I know a few people waiting for their orders. We need to report them for fraud.

Dispute the purchase with your credit card companies. They will refund you the money immediately.
