I did a similar thing with my 5 liter barrel and distillate from GTD. The first fill was not great but not terrible either. For the second fill I put some BT White Dag in there and it turned out much better. The third fill, peated Malt from GTD, was even better, but I left it in a tad too long. I am currently trying to decide whether to cut it up for smoker chips or try something else in there. Knob Creek Single Barrel with a peated cask finish might be interesting!

Thanks for the info!
BB - Thanks for the link to the other threads. I did a search before i posted and didn't find anything. You will have to update us on the vertical. Seems like there were regular changes during the aging process based on your other updates.
I barreled a mix of VOB, Vermouth, Brandy, and Bitters today in the barrel previously used for the wheated bourbon. I don't plan to let this sit too long, since everything has already aged at least to the minimum already. I do enjoy the thought of offering someone a Manhattan directly from the barrel.
