Original whisky barrel, made of 18-month air-dried American Oak by Independent Stave Company (ISC - World Cooperage) in the USA – hewed in Ozars / Missouri.
These barrels have been toasted with the classic gas toast charring.
In the standard segment, these barrels are equipped with Char#3 – the Crocodile Toast, which is a very dark char, designed to provide more extractives for the spirit while offering a unique flavor profile, which tastes like bourbon vanilla, toast or nuts together with sweet smoke aromas. The color release is excellent, leading to a dark gold color.
Based on the open-pored oak and the relatively thin stave diameter (20mm), this barrel is “breathing” a lot, i. e. your distillate will ripen quickly.
Galvanized steel hoops and charred heads.
Bung made of wood
Dimensions ca.: Ø Head: 54 cm Ø Belly: 65 cm Length of dove: 89 cm Ø Bung: 50 mm
