what about port?
Port casks are rarely used for scotch, they provide too much flavor.January 18, 2011 4:54 am at 4:54 am #729738popa_bar_abbaParticipant
I don’t remember any scotch that said port pipes, but Bushmills 16 Irish whiskey is aged in Port pipes.January 18, 2011 4:56 am at 4:56 am #729739

R’Moshe was Matir it. Although it could be he said its better to be Machmir, check with your L.O.R.January 18, 2011 5:52 am at 5:52 am #729741
I see you’re at it again!
On the other thread, out of sensitivity to Feif Un, I didn’t respond to your last comment (there’s a kernel of truth to that). I respond now: (Feif Un, if your here, get out now before it’s too late!)
In general, I’m against corporal pun ishment, but your jokes deserve to be the exception! (Sorry everyone, it was a private joke.)January 18, 2011 5:58 am at 5:58 am #729742labubbyMember

cherrybim: yes a number of teshuvos to R Teitz. I believe YD 1:60-63 or soJanuary 18, 2011 11:54 pm at 11:54 pm #729749
ty daas i find your observations puntastic !January 18, 2011 11:57 pm at 11:57 pm #729750Sister BearMember
Ha, I just learned this 🙂
So basically it’s completely muttar (I don’t know which Rishonim say this). It might be because wine can be 1/6 (that’s why blended scotch is ok) and also something about the flavor, I think.January 19, 2011 1:02 am at 1:02 am #729751cherrybimParticipant
If so,why all the commotion concerning the sherry casks? Also, this could be why the London Bais Din is matir all Scotches.January 19, 2011 2:05 am at 2:05 am #729752Sister BearMember
Ya Rav Moshe says blended scotch is okay because of 1/6 (like batal beshishim just batel beshes)but not everyone agrees with him so ask your LOR.January 19, 2011 3:52 am at 3:52 am #729753
here’s an idea don’t drinkJanuary 19, 2011 5:14 am at 5:14 am #729754
Even though R’ Moshe is mattir, he writes that he only drank it not to be “mechzi k’yuharo”. In other words, even according to R’ Moshe, it’s preferable to stay away from it. He encourages schnapps with a hechsher.January 19, 2011 5:29 am at 5:29 am #729755Yanky123Member
Thanks Hello99 for the backup. Yes, it was a large back and forth with R’ Teitz. R’ Teitz didn’t allow it and therefore R’ Moshe said that the community in which he is the Rov should not drink it. The whole back and forth was in a magazine some time back.
If you are really interested in all the details, you can try to track down some of R’ Teitz’s children or Talmidim and they will prob help you to find where it is.
Or simply look up the Teshuva.

Thanks.January 19, 2011 3:17 pm at 3:17 pm #729757yitayningwutParticipant
I don’t really know what the sheilah is and I haven’t seen the teshuvos, but according to the gemara in A.Z. (33b) it comes out that one may leave beer (and ?????? whiskey would be the same according to all the rishonim and perhaps even better ?”?) in a cask that previously held wine of a goy, and the mechaber (Y.D. 137:4) is mattir with all drinks.January 19, 2011 5:28 pm at 5:28 pm #729758Jack DanielsMember
