george t stagg - filter?

Postby bjorn » Tue Oct 18, 2005 5:48 am

I bought a bottle of George T Stagg a couple of months ago (just happy to find the stuff) and i noticed a small piece of what appears to be fuzz floating in the bottle. I know that it's not surprising to find a small amount of barrel char (which it also has) but I didn't expect this. Could it be part of the filter? Should it affect the flavor? Any help would be appreciated



Thanks,
Bjorn

It may be off the cork (waxy stuff ?) - I've had this a couple of times with Bourbon. Muslin does the trick.

Stagg is (thankfully) unfiltered, so it is not part of a filter.

I think you'll find that's its flocculation, nothing to worry about.

Vatting it with Neutrogena T-Gel will take care of the dandruff, and will make it taste like Ardbeg besides.

Bjorn - I'd be happy to "filter" it for you... :wink:

Cheers, Dave.

Hi there,

try Head&Shoulders for dandruff, that usually does the trick. :lol:

Yes, but only naughty by implication.
