OTOH, I hope before it went *into* the cask it was charcoal filtered,
otherwise the names popskull, busthead, snakebit, batterycured, zombiejuice
and some less polite terms would apply.... I have to say the bourbon I get
from Tom these days is easier on the system than the stuff I used make and
buy with a similar appellation, even when properly handled and rested.

No, there is no need to filter well-made whisk(e)y.  I'm sure that the Scots
would recoil in horror at such a suggestion.

Bourbon on the other hand is not filtered before aging in charred oak which
gives the clear as water "green whiskey" it's distinctive caramel color
after a minimum two years in the barrel.

It does, however, circulate through the charred oak during changes in temp.,
