I've ridden one (actually a few) super nice bike. But truthfully its a laminated construction so they could build it out of any wood.

Great marketing idea

I wonder if it was a choice to have 5cm of headset spacers or if they were constrained by the limitations of the staves.

Ha. I guess they could market the same bike as a bourbon barrel bike since that's what was in the barrel first.

Nice but early morning rides after a night of drinking could be brutal if the staves still smell like scotch.

Sure about that? Glenmorangie is a Scotch!

Most Scotch is aged in used bourbon barrels. There are exceptions, Glenmorangie is not one of them. Their barrels have previously been used by either Jack Daniel's and Heaven Hill, both of which they have partnerships with. Some of their products are finished in barrels used for wine or sherry, but all start in used bourbon barrels.

And for anyone about to say that Jack Daniel's isn't bourbon, that's a damn lie. It's 51% corn aged in new charred oak barrels. Walks like a duck, talks like a duck, it's a duck. Marketing decisions don't change that.

Jack Daniel's calls theirs a Tennessee Whiskey.

The NAFTA agreement, Chapter 3, Annex 313 states:


Quote:
1. Canada and Mexico shall recognize Bourbon Whiskey and Tennesse Whiskey, which is a straight Bourbon Whiskey authorized to be produced only in the State of Tennessee, as distinctive products of the United States.
So Jack Daniels is both a straight Bourbon Whiskey and a Tennessee Whiskey.

I don't really care what people call Jack Daniels, but for practical matters the distillate is charcoal filtered BEFORE being put into barrels. As far as I am aware this is done with zero bourbons in practice or by definition.

Hahaha.

I read the title of the post, and thought that Whisky components had made a frame called the "Cask". It sounded right to me. The actual Whiskey Cask frame, also sounds right to me, for the record.
