KILN TROUGH. Scottish, Pipe Jig (6/8 time). A Mixolydian. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB'. The title refers to the large vessels or toughs used in the production of whisky. Barley grain is harvested and soaked in water where it germinates and soon after is dried in large troughs set in a kiln to be fired. The fuel employed in the kiln may be from a variety of sources (peat, wood, etc.), each adding to the eventual unique flavor of the whisky.
