How to Use: Simply light the end of the stick with a match or lighter, let it flame for a few seconds, wave or blow the flame out, making sure it is completely extinguished, and hold under your Beard for a few seconds. The strong smoke scent will dissipate after about 30 minutes, and you will be left with the sweet, musky scent of the wood oils and whiskey.
The Beardsmith hit a home run with these bad boys. Their whiskey sticks add a perfect amount of sweet and smokey scent to any beard grease they have, whether it's the Original Blend, Haymaker, or Wanderlust, you just can't go wrong.

One of the slew of accessory products that came out as a result of the Bourbon Boom were home-aging kits. Many of these were nothing more than oak sticks, with variations adding textured surfaces, charring or toasting. There have also been miniature barrels and, strangest of all, twirling whiskey sticks.
The usual advised method for using the sticks was to put them in the whiskey bottle for just a few days. How beneficial these were, or if they were beneficial at all, was a widely debated subject. Experiences varied wildly, and as for myself I never achieved anything better than strictly modest results.
That was before I encountered Barrel Char In A Jar, which departed from the usual whiskey stick model in two important respects. First, the Barrel Char In A Jar is designed to be a complete kit. Although most of the supplies look like they come from a shopping trip to Walmart, all the extras you need are there: sample bottles; jars; filters; funnels; and tongs. Also, a range of wooden inserts are provided, allowing for a range of experimentation.
The approach recommended is also different from that of any other whiskey stick set I have seen or heard of before, in that you are encouraged to mimic the aging process as closely as possible. In real barrel aging, the change from summer to winter squeezes whiskey in and out of the barrel would. Here you are supposed to put activated charcoal into the jar, and then follow a pattern of transferring the jar to simulate the seasons.
All three of the experiments below followed the same pattern. I had a full 750 ml bottle, from which I drew up 30 ml to serve as a comparison sample. The remainder went in the jar with a teaspoon of activated charcoal and one or more whiskey sticks. All three of my sessions were carried out in September, and were done in two-day stages designed to mimic the seasons. Summer was in the garden shed, Spring and Fall in the basement and Winter in the freezer.
Experiment #1: Home Blend With One Cherry Wood StickMy usual method for trying to make the best use of a disappointing whiskey is to try my hand at home blending. One such blend did not turn out as well as I had hoped. I had combined a large portion of an American blended whiskey that was rather bland with some MGP 95% Rye with the intent of making it more flavorful.
In this instance, the improvement was marginal rather than moderate. I guess several days of quickly added wood flavor is no substitute for a couple of years of aging. The whiskey was little mellower, little sweeter and less grainy. However, there was still plenty of corn husk on the nose and palate, and it was quite identifiable as (literally) corn in a jar.
The following indicators should be taken as only a guide and not a set of hard and fast rules. Some "premium" whiskeys really are quite terrible, while some mass market products are good enough to pour into a decanter and serve to the Duke of Edinburgh.
Typically, this process happens over the course of years with specially made oak barrels and vast quantities of spirits. But there are a couple products on the market that claim to be able to have the same delicious impact on your whiskey in a much shorter time period and without needing to turn your garage into an oak barrel warehouse.
What I like about this aging product is that the flavors it imparts to the whiskey are pretty standard (specifically that caramel and vanilla aspect) without negatively impacting the existing flavors in the spirit. It really allows the inherent properties of the whiskey to shine through, which is what you want from home aging a raw spirit.
This way, you can have your cake, err whiskey, and drink it, too. And, you get it for way less than the sticker price of a premium bottle; instead, these sticks will improve your flavor experience for only $27.99.
But we also use grains many people are unfamiliar with like triticale, millet, spelt, and KAMUT. And grains you might be familiar with but have probably never tasted in whiskey, grains such as blue corn and quinoa. 041b061a72
