Default OT - Synthetic Whiskey

You could make a wheat wine, fortify the heck out of it with everclear,
then try aging it.

As I understand it, distilled spirits are not generally aged in a plain
oak cask to pick up oak flavours, but in a charred oak cask so that the
charcoal absorbs the fusel oils and other things that make pure
distillate undrinkable.

Cheers,
