Continental, tropical or… spatial aging ?!

The result can therefore be affected according to the climate of the place where the alcohol is aged, whether it is stored in a temperate climate, also called "continental" as this may be the case for Scotch whiskey for example, or tropical as for rum in the islands, where the average temperature and the humidity level are often much higher throughout the year, which has the effect that the share of angels is so increased tenfold.
