Do you think you can handle ghost peppers in your beer?
From the Twisted Pine website:
GFK is brewed with 6 zany peppers. Anaheim, Fresno, Jalapeno, Serrano, Habanero and Bhut Jolokia – Otherwise known as the Ghost Pepper. 200 times the heat of jalapenos, Bhut Jolokia are the hottest peppers in the world, a pepper so hot it can be weaponized. So hot that our brewers had to wear masks and gloves to cut them up. Aroma of smoked chillis fills the nose on first whiff, but don’t let it linger to long. Immediately on first taste GFK has a nice golden wheat flavor, but this is only for a fleeting moment before the temperature rises. Just hold on, the warmth of this beer will set in for a long spicy burn. There is only one finish on this beer – HEAT!
Food Pairing: Ice-cream or milk, because that is all that is going to help you with this brew.
Glenfiddich Cask of Dreams. Very Limited.
In celebration of their 125th anniversary, Glenfiddich brought 11 new American oak barrels to a number of cities across America. They encouraged whisky fans, new and old, to sign the casks and write down their dreams and inspirations. It was a fantastic campaign that helped reinforce the reality that Scotch whisky isn’t an elitist drink, that it has appeal and accessibility to everyone.
The signed casks were brought back to Glenfiddich and then filled with a blend of Scotch whisky, 14 years and older. The practice of finishing Scotch whisky in new American oak is becoming popular. Scotch whisky has long been aged in second-use bourbon barrels, but the new trend towards using new American oak gives scotch whisky makers yet another tool in their tool belt to add new flavors and textures to their whisky.
Glenfiddich Cask of Dreams Scotch Whisky – dark yellow-brown in color, this whisky has clearly picked up some color from its time in American oak. The nose on the Cask of Dreams is slightly fruity and sweet with golden raisin, dried apricot, and soft vanilla. In the center of the nose is a solid oak spice along with a subtle undertone of malted barley. The way the nose presents is very well integrated and inviting; it’s the kind of nose you’re going to spend some time with before diving right into the spirit.
