The whiskey web pattern is a function of the intrinsic properties of the bourbon (ex: mash bill, maturation, char level, etc.) and the extrinsic
properties of droplet evaporation (ex: drop volume, temperature, relative humitidy, etc.). Under controlled conditions, the general pattern is
repeatable and is unique to each type of bourbon whiskey, providing a unique "fingerprint" of each sample.
