Many like to post about a first successful ferment (or first all grain mash), or first still built/bought or first good run of the still. Tell us about all of these great times here.

Tasting the 90% spirit is an art that I need to develop.
I hope you didn't taste that undiluted? That's a sure way to fry your tastebuds fast. And it may cause tissue damage.

So when separating out the fractions, do we;

Fraction 1, test the ABV, take a sample, cut back with water, proceed to fraction 2 and repeat for the 20 odd fractions that we have?

Check this thread:

Generally anything over 50%ABV is considered too strong for direct consumption on this forum. Yes, higher proof products are commercially available, but nobody here advocates consuming high proof without dilution.
