CoCoCabana Posted April 17, 2018 Share Posted April 17, 2018 Finally got my hands on some more whisky barrel chunks. These taken from a rare Glenfarclas Single Malt with the producer decanting a bottle of " leftover" before setting the saw. Used a very basic salt and smoked paprika rub as didn't want to over complicate the flavours. @100 3:2:1 I felt was going to be a touch too much in the end was more 2:2:1 and seemed to work a treat. 4 chunks were put on for the 2 and 2 more for the mid stage. Sauce was a tomato base with smoked paprika , mustard, maple syrup and a touch of Single , sadly not the Glenfarclas. Flesh was very tender, suckable off the bone , the other rack was devoured by my son. The chunks knock spots off of other whisky flavoured chips to my mind. Here you can smell the richness of the whisky this barrel once, probably quite recently, nurtured . I'm looking forward to playing with the wine, cognac, Martinique Rum and a very rare 'not available in Europe' Bourbon Barrel Chunks over the coming weeks. And by the end of May they are going to be available in the UK. 1 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
