A Different Kind of Space Shot

from The Washington Post, September 8, 2015, by Rachel Feltman

After three years maturing in space, Ardbeg Distillery’s malt whiskey space shotshas returned to earth. 

The BBC reports significant differences in taste between earth whiskey and the International Space Station’s aged variety. Space whiskey’s intense and “unique flavor profile” contains “hints of antiseptic smoke, rubber, and smoked fish … a meaty aroma … focused with smoked fruits … earthy peat smoke … and ham. The long aftertaste “hints of … antiseptic lozenges and rubbery smoke”. (Gargle 1 oz. for a sore throat before swallowing.)

Earth-matured whiskey is somewhat more palatable, with distant fruit shining through, “charcoal and antiseptic notes” with a “lingering aftertaste … of gentle … tar.”
