My brother got me this 5L mini barrel for my birthday earlier this week. Got it sealed up and going to put this JW Dant in later today. Wanted something cheap and young but not 80 or 90 proof. From recommendations I decided against any new make or un-aged whiskey for the first run. I may go that route for the second batch after the first batch takes out some of the oak. Will check on it every two weeks or so.
