These barrels have an air tight seal (try blowing into it when you get one) and they will still be air tight after the initial soaking and curing stages, if not send us a message and we will replace it.
THE VERY BEST QUALITY AVAILABLE -
We have the best barrels on the market which are built with new oak wood that last ages as well as durable stands, spigots and bungs to match.
CHARRED TO PERFECTION -
Our barrels are made by 4TH GENERATION COOPERS (barrel maker) and just like any oak barrel, the inside is charred, however ours are done to perfection which gives the contents a natural-oak flavor.
I have always wanted an oak wood barrel for aging whisky, so when I seen this one, I knew I had to have it! I was not disappointed. The first thing I did was remove the bung to take a sniff o the inside of the barrel, wow it smells amazing! I love the way they charred the inside to perfection. I love how even though this American Oak Wood Barrel is made from new wood, it looks old and has that old world craftsmanship. It is a good size to fit on a home bar or mantle (9x8x6inches) This would be a great piece just to have for decoration but I can't wait to age some whisky in it. I blew inside to be sure the barrel is airtight and it is. Now I have to soak and cure it and go and buy some whisky. I am really looking forward to using this beautiful well made wood barrel to age my whisky. I think this would make a great gift for adults over 21 who have a home bar or enjoys a fine wine, whisky, beer or other aged alcoholic beverage.
