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.
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.

Any Stores in the Lakewood area that I can pick up a Glenfiddich Fire and Cane?

So far, Wine on the 9 doesn't have it yet, they're planning on waiting a week after they get it to price it...

(Is the winter storm, not kosher and thus didn't hear anything about?)

This may be the wrong place to ask, is there a thread on DDF on Whisky collections?

Thanks.
