It adds a hint of bitterness, and I say no thanks.

    There is also a certain allure to darker whiskies as the consumer often equates a rich caramel color with age and value. The producers know this, and many connoisseurs argue that the whiskies are getting darker by way of coloring as the producers compete for market share. My gramps insists on no coloring and no cold filtration. I'm with him.
    Hmm, thanks for letting me know. Need to research this. I also have a bottle of Suntory Toki and it's indeed much paler.

    There are a few websites such as royalmilewhiskies.com that provide a search function allowing a customer to look at only whiskies that have no coloring added and no chill filtration. The chill filtration removes any fat occurring naturally in the distilled grain mash. Producers do this so that the whiskies don't get cloudy when ice is added, but connoisseurs are quick to point out that fat, even in the small quantities present in a whisky, carries flavor, and eliminating that fat can alter the taste and create a more bland product.

    Thanks, It's going to be REALLY impressive. As soon as it's open in a few months I will post the date of the official opening party. For now, tip the Norlan glasses, refine your paletes, bc the gin and whisky recipes are approved (the Feds have to sign off)! Our distiller is top notch, and the custom equipment from Germany just got installed. It's gorgeous. Have a look at the build up here. http://instagram.com/asburydistilling

    Sruli coming through with some more materials work in collaboration with Ecco (presumably with the folks that ran Danna R&D as a skunkworks leather R&D department prior to Ecco formalizing it and bringing it more public). Always fascinating to see what he continues to develop!

    sorry for my bad english, i learned it from the book.

    I too am inspired by homeless people when I buy a $1,000 jacket. Why don't we just shit on them? Oh, fashion, sometimes I wonder why I bother...(Faust)

    Very interesting read. I never knew that those yellow translucent leathers done by Poell and Boris were that unstable. I just always assumed it was more prone to tearing just by the appearance. Never thought that other factors such as moisture can make the leather impractical to produce. I'm really interested in touching and getting a feel of these. Sruli mentions they're soft and matte to touch. Without that description, I would have assumed the leather felt like wax paper judging by appearance.

    Can't speak for the black ones, but can confirm the clear ones sure do break into a thousand little pieces rather beautifully when dropped.

    I have the norlan glass and can attest that they do mellow down the edges of stronger liquor. Not sure the actual function besides visual pleasure of the Rauk though.

    It's the tactility of the crystal. After I got the Rauk I no longer use the glass ones, even though the black one is so pretty. But there is something about the heaviness and the lucidity of the crystal that's highly attractive.

    was also looking for some contemporary furniture and ran into this video about Georg Jensen. The brand seems a bit under the radar. Since it's also got the nordic dna as the icelandic design (or more precisely since there isn't a thread for the long gone silversmith), thought I'd share here.

    The pregnant duck pitcher does seem like a lovely item to have at home.
