How To Age Bourbon In Seconds
While you’ll probably agree that bourbon tastes better when aged properly, unfortunately, aged bourbon is pricey when purchased in a liquor store, and many people don't have several years to wait for the best results. It might be out of the price range for college students and young adults. However, there is a lesser-known secret for aging bourbon quickly and affordably.
A Business Insider recipe suggests adding "1 tablespoon of dry sherry, 1/4 teaspoon of vanilla, and 1/4 teaspoon of liquid smoke to 750 milliliters of budget bourbon." Add the necessary ingredients, and shake the mixture thoroughly. The liquid smoke gives the mixture a complex flavor, the vanilla mimics the natural flavor of bourbon barrels, and sherry provides necessary undertones.
To further ensure bourbon tastes its best, you may want to use none other than classic Kentucky bourbon for the mixture. Kentucky Tourism boasts that its limestone reserves, perfect climate, and fertile soil make it the ideal place for bourbon making. It's made of at least 51% corn and bottled at 80 proof or more.
