A great idea from the folks at Wasmund's - a 2 litre new charred oak cask, two 70cl bottles of their single malt spirit and the challenge of maturing your own 'whisky'. It'll pick up flavour quickly in a barrel this small so it's perfect for experimentation.
I wonder... it would be very interesting to put this whisky inside, making it first fill, and then wait for a scotch single malt producer to release an unaged spirit like some do from time to time... and then let it rest in this barrel (now refill) for a while...

if you own a licenced bar and have paid the duty on it (which is a given if you buy it from here) then yes you could sell it in a bar, but as TWE Admin says, this isnt scotch whisky, so can not be marketed as such.

It's an American Whiskey so the rules are different on ageing. It'd still be an interesting question to ask the local licensing authority...

This sounds like a good kit to pick up for home and probably will at some point. But would it be legal to sell in a bar in Scotland? I assume it would at least need to wait 3 years just to be called whisky but unsure if it'd be legal to sell.
