    Re: One for the little guys!

    I have bourbon barrels made from wood set aside for wine barrels. They charge a small premium fo this, one which is well worth it.

    Re: One for the little guys!

    Indeed, your willingness to discuss whiskey making on this forum is over the top great. Thank you!

    Y'alls cooperage ideas are very dissimilar, it seems. Can you discuss more? Tmckenzie states how the 3yr yard aged barrels (from McGinnis) make a big difference. Leopold states they use standard (assuming here) #4 char IS barrels. Whiskey geeks like me, would love to hear further discussion on your reasoning, pro v. con, ideas, and general thoughts on your preferences on this subject.

    Re: One for the little guys!

    Every distiller has his own way of doing things. Not saying Todd's way is better or worse than the way we age. The reason I prefer the 36 month stuff is it works best with our bourbon and rye. The bourbon is high rye and the rye is 80 percent rye, it seems to enhance the spice notes of the rye. We switched to the 36 month stuff about a year into production and the difference is indeed remarkable. The better whiskey is in the aged wood. A side note, I age some stuffing chinkapin or pin oak barrels. It is a white oak, but McGinnis is the only one that when they scale the logs, pulls them out. Those are nice barrels. Makes a spicy and fruity note at the same time.

    They offered it and I gave it a whirl basically. Then found them to be very good.
