    Great results! After curing mine with cognac and Moscow mule mixer we aged it about 90 days. The results were amazingly good with extra smoothness, tannins and unique flavor. I imagined if bottled by a distiller the 750 ml product would be sold north of $100 meanwhile my base bourbon cost me about $75 for 3 liters. It was that good. My next batch is being cured in a 2 liter barrel which I will bring to my neighbors memorial day BBQ.

    I bought a 3 liter barrel. The shipping was fast, packaged perfectly, cured perfect. Aged some bourbon. Great flavor. Very satisfied!

    It’s been a blast. I’ve made whiskey, aged Manhattan, and Negroni. I have a whole list of ideas to try next. I’ve recommended to friends, and they’ve had fun too. I highly recommend!

    This was my 1st try at aging barrels, glad I did it. Took about 4 days with refilling each day with hot tap water for leaks to stop, with one more to be safe. I put my spirits in and in one month you would think I left it for a year. Ended up with 5 bottle. Only thing going to do different is, going to reseal it with the sealing wax and another 3 days with hot water. Since at the end of the month it started to weep a bit.

    I just finished my first batch. I’m a big manhattan drinker so I took a regular manhattan and put it in my barrel, it was delicious! I was surprised and how much different it actually tasted and how good it was. A very cool talking point when friends come over too, it’s something different not many people have. Highly recommend!

    Great barrel, sealed up withing the first hour of curing, great barrel, not finished aging yet but sure makes a big difference already.

    I absolutely love this barrel. I ages some Manhattan’s and Old Fashioneds for my 50th birthday party. They were a HUGE hit. They were the first drinks to run out. My guests raved about the oak flavor and now it is a requested item when I attend parties. I make sure to always have a batch on hand. I recently purchased a Kombucha barrel and can’t wait to taste the results.

    Every bourbon/whiskey aficionado should own one of these fine barrels. A+++++

    Ordered 3 barrels with engraving and they all came out looking great. Been in service for over a year and they are still preforming to exceptional standards. Getting ready to order a few more, also the waxing kit is a must order as well.

    I ordered a 3L aging barrel. Arrived very quickly and started the curing and waxing after the holiday season. Being a first time user I had some questions about waxing and aging and found the customer support is awesome. Questions are responded to in a very timely manner and all are answered. The videos sent were very informative and helpful. I am currently aging a Manhattan recipe of 66 ounces of bourbon and 33 ounces of sweet Dolin vermouth. I strongly recommend Red Head Barrels aging barrels for whatever liquor recipe your would like to put together.

    My first foray in aging spirits was a batch of Manhattans. After 30 days in the barrel they turned out great. I bottled this batch and immediately started another one. Took some of the finished product to my brother’s house for a family gathering. The Manhattans were a big hit. Everyone raved on the great flavor. Needless to say, I am very happy with your product.

    Bought an engraved 3L and it arrived just a few days later exactly how I requested it. Followed the directions for prep and then threw in my ingredients for a Manhattan. Took about 24hrs to cure before I added the liquor. No leaks and it tastes great.

    Love that I found Red Head Barrel! Great selection of barrel capacities and the custom engraving of the barrel was super easy back and forth. I had both a logo and text and the folks were very accommodating to my requested changes. Boought my first barrel as a gift but, will be back soon to purchase a 3L for myself. Very pleased overall.

    I’ve been aging my own whiskeys (craft bourbon and rye) for awhile now and have purchased similar sized oak barrels from other companies and I must say that the quality of the barrel from Redhead has been the best, curing time was much quicker then other barrels I’ve used in the past. I receive nothing but compliments on the flavor of my craft rye recipe that I aged in this barrel and I must say that the char level was perfect for this project. The customer service I received from Redhead was surprisingly great as well, this was the first time that I had a barrel engraved and I was sent the demo for the engraving the day after I placed my order and received the barrel itself with quality engraving within a week. Overall very pleased with Redhead Oak Barrels and will be using them exclusively.

    Just purchased and received my 3L barrel, cured easily and my first batch of Old Fashioned are aging. I received a 2L barrel as a gift, that one is aging my first batch of Manhattans. Both barrels are just fine with no leaks. I have done my research, read a bunch of articles, recipes and watched several YouTube videos. I will be ordering a 5L soon so I can keep all three going. Also, when I ordered the 3L barrel I worked with the customer service folks and went back and forth 3 times with changes to my engraving. Came out great, they were awesome and very helpful.

    My product arrived quickly. The barrel was packaged securely. I started curing the barrel right away. The smell of the hot water in a warm oak barrel is beyond compare. It was sealed tight within a matter of days. Upon filling with my preferred bourbon, there was very minimal leaking of spirits, which was fixed quickly by the accessory kit i purchased. I am very pleased with these products and will be purchasing some as gifts soon! I highly recommend redhead barrels and their amazing customer service.

    Just like the big ones the distilleries use, oak, toasted, plus a stand to make folks ask, “what is that?” So, I am sure you have a few bottles of stuff you don’t drink…I am further convinced that those bottle would make an interesting blend…well that’s what I did anyway. A nice blend of OK bourbon and rye, that separately was OK, but after one month is already better than the originals. When it’s done, it’s done, No idea when that will be, but that’s the fun. I will get another when this is done, start a new batch and use the previous one for rum.

    These barrels are great. I now have a 3L and a 5L. Made a Woodford Reserve original Manhattan in the 3L that after 3 weeks was outstanding. After 5 weeks it was gone. I plan to move that recipe up to the 5L, and do more creative concoctions in the 3L. Any suggestion? Customer service from RHB has been fantastic and the UTube videos are quite informative.

    I purchased this barrel for my husband for Christmas and he absolutely loved it! We got the barrel specific for Rum so when we got it right away we put Captain Morgan in it. After letting it age we did a taste test; one shot from the barrel and one regular shot. WOW we could taste the difference the barrel did within just a few short weeks of aging. I loved how great this company is, how they quickly responded to all my questions and how great of a product they have. I would recommend this product to anyone looking for a well made and beautiful barrel!
