My first aging
I cured my barrel according to the instructions provided (easy) and started with an inexpensive rye whiskey for my first aging, after only 3 weeks it already has more of a cask/barrel flavour like the more expensive brands, not harsh or bitter but a spicy, toasty caramelized flavour with a smokey aroma, very pleasant. . . can't wait for the next 3 weeks of aging! Great product, thanks to Jeff!
