Essence

When it comes to aging your own spirits in an oak barrel, there are two things are exceptionally important. The first, and lesser, of the two is time. Unfortunately, we do not sell that here at Dark Knight Armoury. But we do sell the other, more important of the two, and that is the essence, which gives the liquor its eventual delectable flavor. For those of you who are new to the world of aging your own spirits, this selection might be quite daunting. After all, with 3 varieties of rum, 4 varieties of whiskey, and several other individual flavors available, it is hard to tell which essence will suit your taste. But that is the beauty of aging your own spirits, as you can just keep trying until you find the one you want. And luckily, these bottles of essence are exceptional as far as price goes, which means that finding your favorite flavor will not particularly break the budget. And if you do already know which flavor you like and you already have a barrel of your own, then so much the better, as this section makes picking out your favorite flavor easy and convenient. So if you are an experienced brew master, take a quick second to pick up a few essences that you prefer, and if you are a little less seasoned, have no worries, because each one of these essences will give your spirits an exceptional flavor, so much so that it is hard to go wrong!
