If there is any doubt in your mind that a small percentage of great barrels is actually a better idea than buying lower cost oak, here is your proof:
In the event that you are trying to choose how to allocate funds for new barrels, go good, or don't bother.
Barrels either make a good change, a bad change, or no change. High end barrels make a good change.
Some cooperages deliver barrels which are slightly different from one ordered with an identical description the years before. You don't need another variable in your vintage.
Please do your homework, know that your cooperages are consistent and serious about quality. We would be happy to help. Check out our barrels here.
