  1. whisky313 did not rate this whisky Specialist

    Axel Ritt, guitarist of the German heavy metal band "Grave Digger", had the unconventional idea to explore the effect of whisky on the vibration behavior of tone woods. The company Framus / Warwick (Europe's largest manufacturer of basses and guitars) provided for this experiment 3 guitar blanks. For this extra three oak barrels were built with appropriate holding devices. In each case a blank was placed in an empty oak barrel and filled with 6-year-old Aureum 1865 Single Malt Whisky.

    The guitar blanks were made from the following sound woods:
    - maple, mahogany and ebony (THE GUITARIST)
    - swamp ash and chestnut (IRONFINGER)
    - maple and olive (THE BASSPLAYER)

    Through these different woods, three completely new, until now not yet known flavors, which were each filled with an alcohol content of 47 - 48% vol.

    The three guitar blanks have now been dried and are currently being further built into finished electric guitars, which Axel Ritt will undergo after completion of a comprehensive test regarding the sound differences to conventional sound woods.
