Pot Still vs Column Still Whiskey.

Hi, and welcome back, and thanks for checking us out during our enforced hiatus.

Copper pot still whiskey, or column (Coffey) stilled whiskey? Without going into too much detail on the differences between the kids of stills, this video discusses a lot about the differences in taste between the two. Bill Comerford likes to describe pot-stilled whiskey as having an “oily” taste. Pot stills are an older, slower way of making whiskey that retains more of the congeners and byproducts of the original wash, and we will go into a bit of that in the next post.
