      Is it possible to run my Whiskey tails through an activated carbon filter to have a consumable neutral flavored spirit. Will it contain undesirable particulates that can cause a hangover.

      You can filter the tails- the tails will still have undesirable compounds that are said to be the cause of hangovers. Filtering will most likely remove any haze. I make tight cuts- I only keep the hearts. I will often add the tails to the still on my next batch.
