Ifs and butts


Have been boning up on technical issues for a tasting tonight and realized that despite an early post with biological and traditional ageing in a nutshell and a post on the velo de flor (with thanks to Enoarquia.com and Jamie Goode), I have never really got around to tracking down pieces on the other half of the equation – traditional ageing and the role of wood.

For starters I found a couple of guest articles on the Sherry.wine website – by Paula Maclean and Jamie Goode, respectively – really interesting stuff. But by far the best piece I have seen is this one by Ruben at SherryNotes.com (and Whiskynotes.com) – in turn inspired (or provoked) by the Jamie Goode piece.

A really brilliant piece and one I recommend reading.
