Scotch Ages Differently In Space

Ardbeg, the Scotch whisky distillery, has recently brought a sample of their whisky back from a three-year stint on the International Space Station. After testing the space whiskey against control samples that were aged on terra firma, Ardbeg’s distillers noticed significant differences in aroma and taste, leading them to conclude that terpenes (flavor compounds) behave differently in microgravity.
