PeteB Posted September 13, 2011 Share Posted September 13, 2011 Is it my imagination, or does the taste of new-make change over the first few weeks when unwooded? Recently I tasted some spirit I had made the previous day and it was terrible, really bitter. I was contemplating putting it back into the still in an attempt to make it drinkable. A couple of weeks later I tasted it again and it was really nice. Most of the bitterness had gone (it was 100% rye) and it had become very smooth and drinkable.
