Just got delivery of my George T Stagg 141.2 and Willian L Weller 121.9.
I'm like a kid in a sweet shop
Can't wait to crack open these monsters
Won't be opening them for a couple of weeks though as I seriously need to mop up quite a few bottle ends but will give ye my opinion then.
However I got these nice little facts sheets with both and makes interesting reading in relation to ABV and evapouration.
George T was distilled at 135.0 but casked at 125.0
It was then bottled at 141.2 aged 15 years 4 months
William L was distilled at 130.0 but casked at 114.0
It was then bottled at 121.9 aged 12 years 2 months
The interesting thing is that they actually listed the evapouration loss too.
George T 58.59% of original whiskey lost to evapouration.
William L 58.04% of original whiskey lost to evapouration.
A lot of whiskey loss there so given the evapouration and the abv these bottles actually seem good value for money. I got both from the US and paid (including delivery) what the equlivent retail price for one bottle is over in Europe.
Happy Days for the Angles there
Couriously though the evapouration is similar eventhough there is 3 years of a difference between the whiskies ages.
