What is That Glorious Smell?

cask-glass.jpgBack in October, we told you about Glenfiddich's Vintage Reserve 1997 bottling, and said we were excited to try it. We got a little something in the mail yesterday that has us actively frothing at the mouth. No, it's not a bottle of the stuff - that's too much to ask for even the mighty Liquor Snobs.

No, instead they sent us a hunk of the barrel in which the whisky was aged. It's about as big as our fist, and it smells like fried gold. Sweet and spicy, with just the right hint of whisky, it's everything we can do not to chew on the wood like some kind of deranged beavers. We're this close to hanging it from our rear view mirror as an air freshener, but we're not sure how we'd explain the smell if we ever got pulled over by the cops. This seals the deal - we have to try this stuff.
