Re: Barrel Aging Cocktails at Home. Anyone else doing this?

I don't have a barrel so I encourage someone out there to try this and report back. If I get a small barrel, I'll post here with findings.
In the name of science B&B, I will allocate a small portion of my next batch to jar. I will age that as long as I do the stuff in the barrel. I will happily report back with my findings whenever get around to my next batch.
Unless we hear back from others first regarding aging in a jar.
