Minor issue with leaking but it wasn't so much in the form of liquid, more of a sap but overall not a big of an ordeal. Easy to clean and maintain. Would highly recommend for anyone wanting to age beer or any drink of their choice. Would suggest sampling whatever you put in there every 3-4 days after about 2 weeks to get the right amount of flavor, otherwise is can be overwhelming if you use a fresh barrel.

Roger Brown from Naperville, IL Just tasted my first finished batch of aged "Oak Barrel" Manhattan cocktail, smoothest, best taste tasting ever! Great product, great customer service, great website. Several friends who purchased at my recommendation are very pleased also. A great surprise gift item! Recipes on website are imaginative and different. I will be soon purchasing my second to experiment with "lemoncello" for the summer months. Was this review helpful to you? 5 of 5 people found the following review helpful: An Incredible Bargain! April 25, 2019 Reviewer: Joe Mallet from Boise, ID A group of friends each bought 5L oak barrels at the same time to age spirits in a friendly competition. We met 18 months later to compare results, which made for a great evening. All of the results were great. Although I was the least creative and put a mid shelf blended Canadian whiskey in mine, the results were outstanding. It mellowed and matured into a very smooth and drinkable whiskey with a very unique flavor. After 18 months, it tasted as smooth as any 18 year whiskey in my liquor cabinet. It was especially fun to do a side by side tasting with the original spirit to see exactly how the barrel removed the imperfections from the whiskey and made the flavors deeper, richer and waaaaay smoother. I would like to mention that the customer service at Oak Barrels Ltd. was amazing. These folks are really great to work with. Also, the barrel construction and art work were top notch. As expected, the barrel wept a little when it was first filled with water, but it cured quickly and has kept a tight seal for 2 years. The artwork is great. The barrel itself is beautiful and, with the artwork I chose I get tons of compliments from my guests. It is a great conversation piece at the bar. For the enjoyment I have gotten from this barrel, it was an incredible bargain.

Small scale product operations do not yield enough product to fill larger barrels. I used one to age Scotch, one for bourbon and the quality of the product after 2 months was exceptional. After initial use I used the bourbon barrel to keg a batch of home brew and one was used to "temper" a batch of store bought rum. Results across the board were outstanding.Note these barrels will weep so the Angel Share was high but the devil's share was great.
